Her music is poetic and powerful with a silver lining. MAYA is an interdisciplinary storyteller, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, visual artist and rebel with a cause. She is always searching for new ways of expression by combining art disciplines into imaginative animations, videos, and performances. Dive into her intimate world; a forest with a regretful fox and a blackbird singing about her story, but watch out for the red ants!
MAYA is a 21-year-old artist based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Inspired by nature and artists like Hozier, David Gray, Racoon and SYML, she writes indie folk/pop songs with personal, raw stories and perceptive lyrics.
Since the release of her EP ‘Alined’ MAYA's career has gone from strength to strength. In 2020 Maya was a finalist in Kunstbende and the International Young Songwriter competition by Song Academy. Since then, she has released new music, played at TivoliVredenburg and Eurosonic Noorderslag, and just returned from a semester at the Popakademie in Germany. Currently, she is working on her graduation performance for the HKU conservatory and recording an EP with her new Dutch poetic-pop project. In November her 3rd release came out.
