BIO

Maya Elise writes music that hits you like a cool breeze on a hot day: gently, and playfully, with mystery inside it. Her voice, spacious and relaxed, seeps through the cracks into your heart, welcoming you to set down a heavy bag you didn’t know you were carrying. Weaving together themes of love and family with the vivid imagery of her Sierra Nevada mountains, Maya takes her listeners on a journey deep into the web of human life. Equal parts siren and song leader, Maya’s music offers a powerful message of hope, and a soothing tonic for the soul.
