Maya B


  1. 1.
    Kiss on My Neck

When your phone goes in the middle of the night you don’t always answer it, but sometimes something instinctive tells you to move your body and pick up the damn phone!
This is what happened to Soulshock, the legendary producer of Tupac and Whitney Houston. Having become reclusive and reluctant to take on new projects since the tragic death of his wife, sleep was alluding him. The DM on Twitter was from an unknown artist called Maya B. The message simply read, ‘If you don’t listen to my music tonight, you will never get to hear it again.’ As the raw sounding demo played through the Soundcloud link, his eyes filled, heart raced and he simply replied ‘FUCK’. He knew immediately their worlds had collided and changed forever and there was no turning back.
Maya B is 19 years old, hailing from Los Angeles county, her father a sergeant in the LA SWAT team and her mother a free spirited, travelling artist. Maya has been writing songs since she was 6 years old and taught herself to produce in her bedroom, finding inspiration in the diverse works of Missy Elliott, alt - J, Erykah Badu and Connan Mockasin. At 18 she left school to focus on her music and wrote over 100 songs, including the stunning debut single ‘Kiss On My Neck’. Maya’s music refuses to follow others and will not be pigeon- holed; she’s one of those super rare artists that seem to have been put on this earth to do one thing and one thing only.
This is the arrival of Maya B, move your body and pick up the damn phone.
