Ok so you stuck around so I will tell you now why only two shows this month for Maya Songbird?

I am going to Disneyland this month. No really. A little Family Vacay to Disneyland. How cool is that? A sweet get away and I have my posh Mickey ears ready for the adventure. I have been twice in my lifetime but for a special guy it is his first time soooo WE are going! A little break and I am happy to take it!

Also I am retreating in to write a new project that will be coming to you in October to Ratskin Records.

This will be my second project released on Ratskin. Lets here it for us!

This project is special to me because I would have produced every song on the project!

Let's rewind back to my first release on Ratskin, "Queen of Darkness"...Back in January and I thank everyone who purchased a tape and a CD because they did sell out like three batches of press up! Thank you so much for that. Lots of love for that project! I have to shout out OJI for the awesome production. Also tell you about how I produced "Delicate Chemistry" (Purchase "Queen of Darkness" here)
So producing a whole project on my own. I could feel some type of way.

And you will feel it when you press play. Hmm I will announce the title of the top secret new project sometime either this month or Next month but here we go..Chapter two?

And if you haven't heard my production debut "Delicate Chemistry" then take a listen here.



Also We made a Super Soler Video for this song..

Press Play...



Well I hope this gets you all excited for what is to come in October.

I am feeling ultra inspired in the midst of retrograde. In the midst of Retrograde! My God! lol

We could be dodging meteors on earth instead right.

However it does feel like our electronics are stuck in slow motion and I find myself tapping the screen so many times and clicking the mouse to the tune of a frozen dimension.

Oh this will be great. There will be pure unholy retrograde rage.

Thanks for always reading and supporting. And if you would like to book me and never scam me please email theweirdestmaya@gmail.com

Wishing you all the rainbows and the brightest Sunshine from planet utopia high to your real realm. PEACE.

The Ultimate Bubble Gum Theory!

Let's See. Ideally things to get me through hard times (like change or closed doors or feeling like the weirdest woman alive)... even with an optimistic mind I do have my moments where I am completely like crying and such on this journey of what seems like an endless destination filled with strife!

Well do you feel that way too? Especially in a fast paced planet where everything is always moving moving gone and communication has slipped from our reach effectively it feels.

Here our my secrets and may it help uplift us all and get us through....

I Enjoy chewing bubblemint by Orbit.

I know that might of sounded like I am promoting them and what not and maybe I am because it works for me.

I am not like gonna tell you the gum is super hollistic or like gluten free. But I will tell you that I live for Orbit Bubblemint. It last long and gives a good bubble and is pink. But I will tell you for $1.50 it releases my stress so much instead of talking to a therapist I really get happy chewing and making bubbles....

And now pictures!



Here's me Popping my gum into another galaxy...



Here's me Popping my gum with my spaceships out.

But lastly. Here goes Me Popping my gum and beating the hell out of adversity.



Enjoying that Positive Pop in all dimensions.

Always share your Positive Bubblemint Pop with me!

Wishing us all continued Rainbows and Bubble Pop. Like no matter what life hands you..Lemons, Lies, Deceit, Scams and Strife...You have Bubble Pop to get you through.

Pop On sister. Pop on.

#LoveNote #SoMoteItBE Send me pics of you with your bubble gum to ilovemayasongbird@gmail.com I will share them here. I am happy.

July Shows+New Video+Free Download=BELIEVING IN MAGIC!

Good Day and Hi Yes, July is pretty cool so far considering we are completely out of retrograde. July is Fucking Fly, Actually! Hug yourself if you agree! (heads up...The video on this post is temporarily on Auto Play because I want to be Obnoxious in hopes that you download the song for freeeee)

Well I won't be taking in the fact that I am completely not a fan of FireCrackers....



Yet I took one for the family team. July 4th was beautiful. Kinda sorta got over my fire cracker fear and such. I feel weird like it will fall from the sky and attack. Don't tease me for this. A lot of people prob feel this way. lol Firecrackers are only fun if you are in love and kissing every time the firecrackers are going off in the sky. Like a Hollywood movie.

Well, So far this first week of July has been.... you guessed it #MAGICAL. Well I have to tell you all it must be because lately I have been using "magical soap" to enhance the magic! (holler at me for all of your magical soap needs)

Ok so I am completely excited for July Performance Dates!



And that is all I currently have for now but I will be back with event updates...For now save the date if I am in your town.

Excited for a performance trip to LA! Glad to reconnect with my other half AMRA so we can prepare to bring you our full debut album collaboration, "POLOAPACHERY" out on RATSKIN RECORDS Spring 2017.

Now Let's get in to this new video for an old song remixed years ago by Nigel Geiger.

My favorite remix for this song has been up and out since like 2012? But a lot of people still tell me how they dance to it. So Why not re-release it for new dancing feets.

This video was shot at Del's birthday party. We had hella fun. Takes place with all the cool queer kids. Just want to say that Queer parties are the best parties. Been proudly attending since about 97. Way back when. This is home. This is Safety. So when things happen like the incident at PULSE Nightclub, it makes me think of all the parties I have been too and how it has always been a safe haven for individuality. A celebration of your own identity no matter what others might feel about your existence. So yes I completely dedicate this art to all who lost their lives. We continue to dance and feel safe in our Queer environment. That is the thing. All are invited to be themselves in Queer spaces. Barely negativity at a Queer party. Pray for our world. Everyone has Obvi lost their minds and need to dance more! I am Glad I got to express what I feel and I have a place to express that. Thank God for that. We all have the right to be ourselves fearlessly and my friends in this video wear their identity so freakin loud and proud! Big Thanks to Jasmine Infiniti, Cali, Ahlya, JShelley, Julez, Del, Lichen, Steve, YOYO, and Bo.

"Cosmic Experience-The RMX"-Maya Songbird from Maya Songbird on Vimeo.

The first Tour of my life was a great experience. #RatskinTour "Fucked Up Reign, Fucked Up Rainbow" was a success.

I never thought I would ever go on tour. Some of us are lucky to hop in and get scooped up to the lavish tour life early in our careers. Me? It took a bit longer. I tell you I felt like a giant black cat leaving her shelter for the first time walking through the door of expanded opportunities.

Touring is the best thing to happen to a performer. To take your honed craft on the road to experience new audiences and different environments. A true blessing and further confirmation that I am on the right path. So here goes! The story of our tour begins now!

I got to tour with my label mates on the best indie Noise/Pop/Industrial/Electro to ever exist and that is Ratskin Records.

First check out our awesome Tour Flyers!





Can't you see the fantastic four was ready to take over the world.

We started out on the 9th as we packed into Dave Montoya's van headed to our first gig on the tour. We played UC DAVIS!

Here we are. On the freeway...



And Once we were in Davis the magic started to ignite...



UC DAVIS was so beautiful. We got to play at a Co-Op house that had a nice big window where people outside could see us perform. That was super cooolll.



I met the cat of the Co-Op and at first she wasn't really fucking with me. But during my set she came in the room and sat and enjoyed the performance. That's cool to know we connected on a cool vibe. She let me pet her after I performed. I made a fan. #Meow



I also met this cat "Maebe" pronounced "Maybe"...Omg. She smelled so good. lol She smelled like Cotton Candy.



We travelled further up the way and ended up at a cool spot in Black Butte, CA where we stayed at a cool place that conserved old trains and turned them into cool cabins. This place was pure magic. And the breakfast was fantastic.



Our next stop was to Eugene, Oregon where I discovered that you did not have to have a weed card to get your weed and weed treats.

I am happy I got to pick up a cool little cookie and make a new friend at the clinic.

We played the hip Eugene Noise Fest.



Eugene was fun. For my second show on the road, and outside of California...I felt empowered. Eugene was nice.



Next we headed straight to Portland. We stayed at the Alice Coltrane Coliseum which also used to be a krishna temple.

Great energies in that building.



That night we played a pretty cool house party where I met the awesome duo Vern and Ian.



Oh how we danced. And then we attended another house party called the Glitter Dome. Where I got to see the amazing freaky, Tig Bitty perform.

The next day our host Vern and Ian took us to an awesome classy diner for breakfast before we made our way to our next stop....SEATTLE!



I copped some authentic Portland Oregon Lavender!



So lets see. Our next stop was Seattle. And when we touched down in Seattle I was amazed! OMG. I went to have authentic Cardboard Seattle Pizza. And every place I went, it felt like Nirvana and Hole was the soundtrack. As Seattle is super the home of grunge and Kurt is forever King. Wow. I was amazed. We performed at the Eclectic Theatre. I met my friend Richard who was turning 21 in the next three days. So for his birthday, I braided his hair and had a great conversation with him. Such a brilliant young man.





I enjoyed performing in the red light. And singing "Mysterious Stranger" on the ground. Indian Style. Super experimental and pretty darksided.



How cool is it that Ratskin was on the Marquee? So of course the Ratskin fam and I had to make this cool montage and such. Thats me, Bonus Beast, Malocclusion, and Slanted Square.

So That day we actually got to explore Seattle and we went to the farmers market and that was great. I enjoyed the food and we got to stop by the weird store and see strange things.





So I got my fortune read and I feel like she lied to me. lol Well surely, she was not Zoltar. Zoltar would have not let me down.

Our next stop on the tour was Olympia. Now when we pulled up to Olympia I had no idea what to expect. Man. Olympia was wayyyy to live. Everytime I think of Olympia's energy!!





Olympia was tooo live. We had hella fun. I love a crowd that loves to dance all night long!

Thank you Olympia for that fun.



Tour mate Bonus Beast before Coffee and After Coffee. lol




Tourmate Slanted Square ties his shoes so awesomely.



Me playing guitar for my tourmates.



Something cool about Olympia is that they are hella organic. Their popular thrift store was overpriced. (Cough Cough) Or maybe I am just spoiled to Cali's great and luxurious thrifting options! I loved Olympia's energy and I randomly ended up at an Senior Citizen Center because they had a thrift store and came up on some cool items. I also complained to my tourmates about a french toast bacon breakfast sandwich I bought at a diner there. I hated it. #oof

It was great to actually drive through Olympia and my Tourmates, Slanted Square and Bonus Beast went on a spiritual hike as I took full opportunity to get some good rest in the van. The weather was a bit bi-polar. One moment the sun was shining and then it would rain intensely and then the sun would be all shining through the rain. Interesting.

We then returned back to Portland for our last tour stop which was absolutely amazing. Back at the Alice Coltrane Coliseum Memorial Center.

My friend Lauren came out to support. And I met this ultra snappy Diva Dog. We sorta had a little boxing match.



We closed off the tour quite lovely. But the best is getting to sleep in the most comfortable bed ever. Thank you Anna. The best sleep a birdie can get.

Thank You Mikey, Dave, And Ryan for such an amazing first tour. We had such a good time. I will forever cherish this experience. Dave you kept me laughing with your great punch lines and plot twist.

Check out and purchase our amazing Tour Compilation of Live Performances.
