Debut single Sinners has just been announced by MAYA who is recently returned from recording in the Hollywood Hills.
The single is due for release on August 5 and will be celebrated by a string of Melbourne shows, including one with the legendary Jim Steinman on September 17.
Steamy and full of fierce expression Sinners is beautifully articulated by MAYA’s mature vocal. The band and the strings add an intense depth to her soulful melody. The track was written with powerhouse team Smash Bros (Cheryl Cole, Cee Lo green, Flo Rida) and Aussie singer/songwriter Shelley Segal (Carl Cox, Adam Levy, Josh Abrahams).
The Sinners video is dark, seductive and artistic, directed and produced by Zachary McSweeny (Deja, Maribelle, All The Colours). The song focuses on two sides of one person and so the video portrays MAYA as both; devilish and angelic in an abstract, smoky world.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
