Poised at the crossroads between innocence and experience, Maya Rae’s voice communicates with an immediacy and commitment that most artists never attain. In an age when so much music feels overproduced and lacking in genuine emotion, Maya’s songs come like a breath of fresh air – vital, committed and uplifting. She’s been singing professionally since the age of twelve, recorded her first album (Sapphire Birds) of jazz and classic pop standards at thirteen, and has gone on to sing with some of the biggest names in Canadian jazz.
Maya’s live performances allow the listener to hear a young storyteller on stage, weaving her original songs through a concert that is also mixed with jazz standards and classics. Maya says, “I write songs that convey a message of self-love and female empowerment. The main message that I want to get across to my listeners is to promote one’s authenticity and to bring hope and empowerment to those who listen.
“One of Canada’s Top 35 Jazz Artists Under 35…a supremely gifted artist who is able to phrase like Sarah Vaughan but write a lyric like Joni Mitchell.” – CBC
“Her album Sapphire Birds is accomplished and speaks well of her depth, and proves there is a lot of pop and soul that takes Rae out of the jazz world… the arrangements are sympathetic, remarkably spare enough to provide Rae with accompaniment but giving her room to stand out and sing.” – Vancouver Sun
