MEET MAYA MALKIN
Meet Maya Malkin, a Montreal-turned-Toronto based artist, making pop with a purpose, who first entered the scene with her band Motel Raphael. With Motel, Maya has played the likes of Osheaga, SXSW, opened a sold-out show for Tegan and Sara, and performed on Parliament Hill for Canada’s official 150th birthday celebration. In 2020 when the world felt more apocalyptic than ever, Maya launched her solo project with her first single, “Hostage.” Aside from hearing Maya on Virgin Radio, CBC, KiSS, and the like, you may also find yourself listening to Maya during a commercial or two, where she dabbles in the realm of jingle writing and voice acting. She has found fans in the likes of Line of Best Fit, EarMilk, Clout, Canada’s Walk of Fame, and more.
Evident in her song writing, Maya holds nothing back, and is here to offer the sounds of victory and healing, having come out the other side of an abusive relationship. Her brutally honest lyrics dressed up in glossy pop production, her knack for writing a catchy melody, and her vision for this project make her a force to be reckoned with and an artist to watch in 2021.
