Chicago-born and Brooklyn-borrowed singer/songwriter ArinMaya has been singing since she can remember.
With a background in gospel and rich choral traditions from around the world and an ear for everything from jazz to folk, soul to afrobeat, electro to experimental, ArinMaya is not afraid to risk convention to achieve a range of sonic pleasures. Her voice texture reminds many of India.Arie, while her style and phrasing calls Nina Simone to memory. She prefers to think of her sound as a culmination of emotional expression and an honesty that exists without barrier. She has taken the stage from Paris to Berlin to New York's own Blue Note, and continues to travel and perform worldwide reaching diverse audiences to spread messages of truth, love and uplift.
