Prodigious young talents performing jazz music and the American Songbook have gone back to the beginnings of the genre – artists like Ella Fitzgerald and even Judy Garland were blowing away listeners of all ages with their talent, incredible tone and sense of swing from their teenage years and beyond.
This phenomenon has led to an ongoing output of incredible female singers over the decades, that continues today with Vancouver-based, 16 year-old singer, musician and composer, Maya Rae. She is inspired by musicians like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and The Beatles, and modern-day artists like Jamie Cullum, Megan Trainor, and Ed Sheeran.
Maya is an artist who is proving that a jazz artist does not need to be confined by the past, but can use her influences, her own experiences as a young woman, and her view on the world to inform her diverse presentation of soulful music.
