Born in London, but raised in Los Angeles, Maia Zakay is the future of R&B music. At only 19 years old, she has developed a sultry, passionate singing style like artists such as Ariana Grande. Maia started singing for fun at the tender age of 3 years old and has never stopped. Although she had some vocal training, her singing and production skills are self-taught, and she obsessed with everything that is music.
Super-producer Scott Storch (Beyonce, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Lil Kim, Chris Brown, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, and many more) is such a fan, that he collaborated on a song with Maia that is awaiting release. For Maia to have worked with him so early on in her career is only a testament to what’s to come.
Maia wrote her first song at 16 years old in response to a dark time in her life. Now, Maia finds solace in the art of songwriting. What started as a personal form of therapy became Maia’s way of helping others. Her music deeply resonates with people, which has become the driving force of Maia's music career.
During Summer 2020, Maia wrote, co-produced, and released her album, #SpeakUp. The album was co-produced by Stephan Oberhoff, who works closely with legends such as Quincy Jones, David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and more!
