Artists decorate space, Musicians decorate time.

Maya is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, & collaborator based in Minneapolis.

She performs solo under her first and middle name, "Maya Elena", also with her four-piece band Illusion Valley, and as a featured singer with Wookiefoot.

Songwriting began as a tool - she feels she is on a life long creative journey balancing the mind, body & spirit. The expression of such is through poetry, music, yoga, and teaching.

This also reflects as themes of self care, transmuting, healing, growth, and celebrating fuck up's.

Maya is a yogi, world traveler, priestess, a nature freak, & a humanitarian.

In her free time she studies feminine mythology, non-violent communication, intersectional feminism, psychology, restorative justice, and philosophy.
