Maya Payne (Matt Power) has just finished attending the Blackrock Studios9th International Songwriters camp in Santorini, Greece.
She was partnered with many of the world’s top writers during the camp and has come away with great new friends and contacts and confidence to pursue her dream as a writer. She is now off to Berlin to work with some on new songs and has sessions also lining up in London and Amsterdam. Huge thanks to Outward Sound for making it possible. One of the tracks from the camp, that she co-wrote with ex Kaiser Chiefs founder and drummer and often Mark Ronson co-writer, Nick Hodgson, has already been picked up by a major publisher in Europe and is being introduced to some top established artists out there. Mayas plan currently is to return to NZ before Christmas and attend Mainz in Auckland in the new year, studying a degree in Music Production.
Mayas new single 'Illuminate' is due out on Nov 11th.
