Throughout her high school career, Maya continued to grow as a songwriter, and on her 18th birthday she released her first EP, Nostalgia. This collection of 4 songs was a brand-new take on what you currently know as a “contemporary singer-songwriter” ballad. On August 11th, 2019, she released her second EP, strong&independent, a collection of 5 songs which feel more upbeat, while still feeling much more sophisticated. The collection features much more fearless references to Maya's struggles with sexuality, change, and mental illness.
