This week's feature is on the very first recorded music made by someone from the state of Arizona.
Reading our story about Maxwell will tell you a lot, but to truly understand Maxwell's music you have to hear her sing. Listen below and you'll no doubt be blown away by just how beautiful, unique, and haunting the music she made was.
Here are four tracks recorded by Maxwell and four more tracks featuring her playing along with her family's band. All were recorded for the Victor label in 1929 after a harrowing trip down from the mountains and through the desert to El Paso, Texas.
