Maya is a 16 year old Danish-English singer, who has been writing songs and poetry for 7 years. Using evocative imagery and resonant melody lines, she echoes an indie-folk sound. Her lyrics leave a lot to the imagination and interpretation of the listener.
She is inspired by the late 60's folk resurgence and by singers such as Melanie Safka, Joni Mitchell, Vashti Bunyan, and Fairport Convention, but she also draws from the more modern influences of Gillian Welch, Laura Marling, Daughter, and Angus And Julia Stone.
Maya's newest song, Wayfarer, reflects universal feelings of yearning and a desire to escape. A good song to listen to if you would rather be somewhere else.
