Oh November...I am here and it is my birthday month!

WEll. I know you were all like Maya Songbird is tardy on her blog post for this month and well I must admit I did take a little Sabbatical for the mere fact that the Elections had everyone's brain focused on Donald Trumps Toupee and Hillary Clinton's pussy power at stake and such and then it got all crazy because then Donald Trump and then real terror begin like Halloween all over again. Who so ever thought that Micheal Myers would be president and we would all be Jamie Lee Curtis.

It has to be against the law for the President to be completely overly malice to its people so well I will move on to better ideas that we wont have to run for cover to much. We can always impeach Donald Trump and put Shirley Caesar in office because she has always been great but mostly excited for the level of worldwide success she is achieving for a song that was a particular favorite when it came on KSOL Sunday mornings in the am back in the eighties in the car on the way to church...Just my comprehension of all the current events happening this month when I come out of my consistent daydream.But this chaotic society makes me feel so safe to drift away and pop my head in from time to time like oh hey yeah maybe I should move on again. Oh the joy of living in my head.

As you know this is my birthday month and I am over the moon ecstatic for this next chapter. I just kinda dived in and performed with out telling you here but I told you on places like my Facebook...Have you liked my page? Super Corny and Cheesy but you can do so here..Facebook.Com/MayaSongbird

I also shared on Twitter, but my page has been private because of insidious behavior and bullying and honey I am not here for it...But if you are feeling pure and true follow me here...Twitter.com/YOMayaSongbird

Do I have an Instagram? Yes I do..Follow @TheWeirdestMaya and @WiredWeirdEnt....

So Some amazing things have been happening in my life and I am so thankful. First things first. Thank you Ratskin Records for supporting me heavy this year. Whatever I ask you make it happen and that is imperial.

The best birthday gift is knowing that my tapes "Queen of Darkness" and "Welcome to the Darkside" have sold and been received well. And here are some places you can cop them at. It is a dark commodity you absolutely need in your life.



You can purchase my tapes at Vamp Vintage Art in Oakland CA.

Econo Jam Records in Oakland

And Vacation SF in San Francisco not only has tapes but also some Birdie handmade products.

I have a big surprise for December to announce in the tape realm.

So also I am excited to tell you about my Collaboration with Talia M Taylor. We originally collaborated like in 2013 and we liked it so we formed a supergroup and called it Black Girls in OuterSpace...



So this is our second collaboration titled "Up Above My Head"...

This all went down in a day. My Counterpart Lady Talia hit me and was like I have had this song by Kirk Franklin and the Family in my head all day and I think if we did an uplifting version on it the world would go mad. Well I added the last part but it was like similar sentiments. lol Any way Now we are here. With "Up Above My Head" which was originally a free style. Check out the Video Directed by Trippy Sanders. @Trippy_Sanders



And listen on Soundcloud.



So our full Debut hits you live in direct for Black History month and we got something real real and relevant to say.

I want to close off this blog post by Thanking West Oakland Holistic Health Center for having me perform at their Amazing turnt up Benefit show earlier this month!

Thank you Justime and Joshua for having me at Afternoon Delight in Retrospect cheers to another successful year under the belt. What great parties are made of and you know a party is amazing if it conjures the rain in the summertime.



Thank you Kevin for capturing that moment.

Thank you Comfort and Joy (Beatrix, Joshua, and Ultra) for having me Twirl.

via GIPHY



A thank you to everyone who is always kind to me and just loves me. Feels good to have that in a world of hate. Some real good Utopian ass SunShine!

It is my birthday on Saturday and I am ready for the blessings a new year brings.

Peace and XO's

Hello Darksided Pumpkins, "Welcome to The Darkside" that is OCTOBER!

Hi everyone. Thank you once again for a fantastic never dull year. Lucky for me I am the captain of the Space Cadets and most things go completely over my head and I am ok with that here. Keep it Pure.

Well. We are in the last Two months of the monkey year and I plan to release two more projects before the year is out.

Starting with A All Songbird Produced project from the darkside of the moon. With brilliant co-production by my friend and collaborator Jon Jon from the Grease Diner.

This feels good to have produced a project. I feel like I took matters into my own hands. I feel like I created a sound like no other. When I took matters into my own hands and produced "Delicate Chemistry"



and got such a positive response, I figured how could I not go on to continue on the path. So This project is the next chapter to the "Queen of Darkness" which dropped in January on Ratskin Records. Well this is "Welcome to the Darkside" which is the complete darksided follow up to what was written in the beginning.

Well here goes some photos to show how much fun we have been having recording.



My only show this month will be centered around "Welcome to the Darkside" as there will be a tape release party on the 15th at the Oakland Secret! Where you will be able to hear my new project and three more amazing tapes out on Ratskin this season.



RSVP HERE.



Hope to see you there. You can pick up your physical releases at Oakland Secret on the 15th and digitally on the 31st. Which we have super surprise in store.

Enjoy a sneak peak of the process!



I will also be performing and debuting new art at the Good Omen Market. So come out and meet new/familar vendors. Enjoy some Hella Vegan Eats.





xo's peace and rainbows!

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.
