Bio

Honest music that will get your head thinking and your toes tapping, Maja’s powerful vocals navigate the nuances of soul, folk and blues. Often accompanied by instrumental sidekicks with inventive arrangements, she is gaining quite a reputation in the Brisbane music scene for her thought-provoking performances and eccentric character. Releasing her much-anticipated first single on June 12, “Treat Me Right” is an upbeat soul number inspired by the likes of Otis Redding and Etta James. Maja will also be releasing a five-track EP later this year.

Really enjoying the new direction Maja is pouring herself into. Singing straight from the title of this song 'Hurting Now'. Cathartic with the lyrics and music leaving me totally drained ~ whilst wanting to hear it over and over. Love it ~
