A New Song Every Month!
Compositions, Poetry, Yoga, and Sustainability.
Maya Elena is dissolving illusions of the “Starving Artist” by cultivating a holistic approach to songwriting, creative process.
A sustainable creative existence allows Maya to support others in doing so!
She incorporates mythology, mysticism, duality, philosophy, healing, growth, and honest self expression.
Maya Elena is a singer/songwriter, yogini & yoga teacher from Minneapolis, MN.
She performs as a solo musician, and sings with Wookiefoot.
The music industry was built on a model of distributing physical product (CD’s, albums, tapes, etc) to listeners through a series of gatekeepers. We have entered an era in modern technology that allows creators to not only self publish, but earn a living outside of the industry and it’s previous structures.
For me, this allows a sustainable process from the first lyric or guitar riff of a song, to publishing it on my creative online portal of choice! I publish blog posts, lyrics, new music every month, give away’s, and inspirational messages. I do this all for free, and fans can pay as they wish via monthly patronage or a one time donation.
