On her self titled debut album, I:II, Maya has merged the acoustic/folk songwriting tradition into the territories of pop, bossa nova, and even the high drama of cinematic scoring. Her music is a surprising, yet rational marriage between all these cultures--she sings in Portuguese, Spanish and her native English tongue. As a trilingual songwriter, Maya has trained herself in the art of honesty. She recognizes that certain emotions travel through lyrics that could only work sincerely in Spanish, Portuguese, or English because they fit into the languages’ cultural continuum and poetic tradition. Remarkably, Maya is able to successfully guide her different cultural influences and musical perspectives into a refined and studied genre of her own making.
"Here's a rarity: An original voice who really is original! Drawing inspiration from all over the map, Maya Solovéy has developed a deep, enchanting sound that's unlike anything else out there right now."
-- Tom Moon, music journalist for NPR, Philadelphia Enquirer, and author of 1000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die.
"Maya Solovéy is an exceptional songwriter, possessed of a voice that is haunting, soothing, and erotic all at the same time. Her music, I'm sure, will change the world."
--Bassy Bob Brockmann, Multiple Grammy winning producer/mixer

“Maya Solovey is turning the world of female singer-songwriters upside down with her earthy vocals, sweeping instrumentation, and a sound that's simultaneously pure and well-worn. Her voice is both a dreamy whisper and a ghostly figure, and we can't get enough of it.” --Alyssa Coluccio, PureVolume
