Hailing from Flatbush, Brooklyn, Maya Azucena''s music is as diverse as her roots. Blending the strongest elements of Soul, and HipHop, Jazz and Blues, she has come up with a style distinctly her own.
"...MAYA WHO?! is an outstanding effort that should shoot her amongst the top of everyone''s list of emerging artists to watch. With a splendid blend of Soul, R&B and Hip-Hop, Azucena sings about scenarios that''ll hit home with passion, sass, and been there authenticity while displaying a voice that''s diva strong and compelling."
"Her sound is deep, rich in the myriad traditions that she mixes so confidently...Azucena poignantly addresses the pain of inner-city life when dreams and ambition are all that one has...Azucena radiates a dynamic energy through these same songs that lead to inspiration....You can hear the influences of Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Prince and the Sugar Hill Gang."
"Local vocalist Maya Azucena deserves massive props. With every passing month she seems to be more on the rise, so here''s a chance to catch her before she takes off nationally. Blending soul, hip hop, rock, and latin jazz in her music, perhaps the most stunning feature of her performances is her natural presence - in terms of both raw vocal power and sheer charisma." -JM
