Biography

Maya Azucena is proud to present her provocative breakthrough sound. Her LP, Unleash Me, is set for release later this year and is part of a collaboration with super-producer Sonix The Mad Scientist (Sean "P-Diddy" Combs, 50 Cent, DMC of Run-DMC, Maxi Priest, Mick Mars from Motley Crue, Mario Winans). Her eclectic brand of Progressive Soul mingles effortlessly with a nostalgic mix of Rock Fusion, creating a unique mélange that could be considered the future of fusion.

Ms. Azucena was awarded a Grammy Certificate for her feature with Stephen Marley on his record, Mind Control, which won a Grammy for Best Reggae Album. MTV Made star, singer/ songwriter/ social activist, Maya's work has been recognized across the globe. Maya's performed on countless stages, including Essence Fest alongside Beyonce, Jill Scott, Maxwell and others. In 2015, Maya toured to Haiti, South Africa, India and Russia, as well as her U.S. shows. Recently, she performed at the world-renown TEDxWomen Conference in Washington DC, and participated greatly in One Billion Rising, an international campaign to end domestic violence. Maya's critically acclaimed song, "Dance Revolution" was commissioned by One Billion Rising founder, Eve Ensler, to inspire support throughout the campaign.

Maya is on the executive board for CONNECT NYC, an organization that provides counseling and other services to families and communities healing from domestic violence. As a result of her work, Maya was featured in The Washington Post, Billboard and many other publications. In 2013, she received the Innovator of Change Award that stated, "Thank you, Maya Azucena, for using your voice to make the world a better place."
