Speakers!

Artist Maya Marie

The power-house vocals of Maya Marie sway easily between soul and rock ‘n’ roll, drawing you into the comforting depths of her painfully honest lyrics. She taught herself to play guitar when she was nine-years-old, at an early age she had a rich voice that would get better over time. As she has grown so has her control and personality. Music has continued to be her passion and motivation. Having been inspired by the classic rock and folk music her mother would play, she has developed a sound that spans time. Her lyrics and guitar licks have grown to be moving both emotionally and physically. Maya’s stage presence captivates those from all walks of life and brings enthusiasm in every note sung. You never know how she’ll reach you, but she will.
