VIDEO: Maya Azucena embodies the spirit of Black rock

Maya Azucena from Rob Fields on Vimeo.


The singer-songwriter on songwriting, honesty and why artists are their own best assets.

Everything she talks about here are the things that indie artists–and Black rock artists–need to keep in mind, so I’ll let her speak for herself. 

In the meantime, Maya’s another talent to watch.  If you’re not already familiar with her, check out her recent album, Junkyard Jewel, for her soul/R&B/acoustic side, or her new mixtape CD, Taste This, for more of her beat-driven, hip hop work.  You can also catch her collabs with Vernon Reid and his Yohimbe Brothers project.
