Born in what was then an unincorporated area in Southern Oregon.
The radio was always on and I wrote my first lyrics at seven, on the back of my Father’s receipt paper.
Everything I’ve ever needed to know, I learned from listening to a quiet forest…
From feeling mud between my toes, and from letting the river take me… – Maya
