With a passion for rock and metal MAYA has strived to unite her love of the violin with her love for heavy, dark music (such as thrash, NWoBHM, Doom and classical) and her long time influences Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden and Megadeth (to name a few).
Discovering Wood Violins in 2008 and their infamous flying ‘V’ Viper violin she was immediately equipped with the axe of choice; a custom made 5-string fretted Viper, painted with the Angel of Death’s Wings and drop tuned a fifth to include a low F string for added snarl and attitude, her trademark sound and style were formed. Her expressive, unique style of playing combines her Celtic / Indo roots to produce a sometimes haunting essence to any track she plays on. Maya is also a Wood Violins Artist: http://www.woodviolins.com/html/artistseries.html
MAYA has gone on to play with various reputable semi-professional classical and alternative groups at the known venues as the Barbican, the Fleece and the Hackney Empire. MAYA has also played/recorded with many bands and solo musicians, and most recently the rock band 'CalatrilloZ'. Excitingly she has just recorded her own hugely unique and rocking solo concept EP - ENTITY (Battle of the Angels). MAYA has been played on Headcase radio and Total Rock numerous times. This is METAL electric violin on steroids!
