Maya Payne - We Are The Wild

Share this

Hi, I’m Maya Payne and a singer songwriter from Christchurch. I’m releasing my debut EP “The Lucky Ones” in March. “We are the Wild” is a new single from the EP. My musical style is Electronic Future Pop, with artists I love including Flume, Ellie Goulding, Purity Ring and Years and Years. My music is quite high energy .I want to make people dance and move when they hear my music. I also want to help people feel empowered and positive. I can’t wait to perform my music out to people in the future. Expect lots of colour and fun.

Tell us about this song – ‘We Are The Wild – what’s it about? Is there a story behind it?

We Are The Wild is all about empowerment. I want people to feel happy and confident when they hear it. There are so many things in our society that bring us down and make us feel bad about ourselves. It’s about embracing our youth and coming together to have fun.

Can people check you out live anywhere in the near future?

I am booked to play at Canterbury O-week in March and plan to get to other cities to play in the near future after I release my EP.

How is the rest of summer and 2016 shaping up? What’s in the pipeline for Maya Payne?

Who knows! Once I release my EP the plan is to do a tour and play to as many people as possible! I’m hoping to play some shows overseas this year as well.

Have your say
