Through the gentle and consoling sounds of her voice and harmonies, as opposed to her rather robust and vigorous-like lyrics, singer-songwriter Maya Mae creates a sound that could be described as a fusion of contemporary RnB, Soul and Urban Pop. Most of her influences come from the Funk, Fusion Jazz, Soul and mostly Motown artists that have played a huge part in her upbringing.
Currently, she is working on her EP, having established a new sound for herself in collaboration with producer Litening (UK), she wants to expand on this sound through new collaborations. There is a spiritual aspect that takes the forefront in her music, through her layered background vocals mixed with Eastern-like sounds and electronic drums she shares her personal views on her internal and external world. Artists that she draws most of her inspiration from are Rosalia, SZA, The Weeknd, Sabrina Claudio, Sade and Solange.
