Fine Upstanding Citizen is a 2005 album by American singer-songwriter Maia Sharp.

Reception[edit]

Writing for Allmusic, Thom Jurek gave the album three and a half stars out of five. He said that it "won't set the charts on fire" but called it "a mature mark from an under-the-radar artist".[1] He cited the track "Fall Like Margarite" as a highlight, calling it "simply gorgeous."[1] Ronni Radner of Out called the album "an impressive set of thoughtfully crafted songs" and said that it "pays a definite homage to [...] trailblazing femme troubadours" like Bonnie Raitt, Rickie Lee Jones and Carole King.[2]
