I've got a brand new Spanking BIO..

"Since the day a young Maya Songbird noticed that she could manipulate her voice to musically express emotion, imagination, and insight, she began creating her own candid and sincere music. Born and raised in the colorful Castro district of San Francisco, Maya Songbird was exposed to wide range of diverse lifestyles, culture, and most importantly, music. She began singing at 4, got a solid grounding in the church and began her professional career in 2009.
Maya fuses Indie Pop, Soul, and Alternative into one unique style, not only with her voice, but also with many talents: writing, producing, and visual arts. Influenced by Phyllis Hyman, Anita Baker, Sade ́, Jill Scott and Pat Benatar, Maya cultivated her own ethereal, playful but heartfelt sound and bridges the gap between her favorite genres.
Rhythmical but staccato, uplifting yet grounded, sensitive and sensual, Maya’s songs are examples of her multi-faceted expression. Although she’s a relatively new and completely independent artist who has yet to release her official LP, her leaks have already been downloaded 12,000 times! To her fans, peers and even to numerous of her own artistic idols, she is a new icon because her work has proven not merely entertaining, but empowering.
Her talent is so raw and obviously authentic that no one could mistake it for mere packaging and her performances demonstrate her ability to elicit an off-the-hook response from the audience.
Sure to be a part of transforming the landscape of music, much has been said about Maya’s brilliant synthesis of styles. Her long-awaited first official LP, “Castro Kid” is set to drop in early 2013. For more information go to: www.mayasongbird.com."
