More Info:

Debut album by up and coming Vancouver singer/songwriter Maya Rae! Maya and her brother, Gabriel, started writing songs together in the summer of 2018. Inspired by classic singers like Carole King and Nina Simone, iconic performers such as The Beatles and JoniMitchell as well as modern-day artists like Ed Sheeran and Adele, Maya felt ready to record an album of original material. That's where veteran roots musician and producer, Steve Dawson came in. On the strength of the demo she sent him, Dawson invited Maya to come to Nashville, saying that he had time to record the very next week. She flew down a few days later and almost immediately found herself at Black Hen Studio, surrounded by some of the hottest young musicians in Nashville with whom Steve had gathered to collaborate with Maya on the new material. With a group that included Kai Welch, (keyboards/trumpet) Jamie Dick (drums), John Estes (bass) as well as The Birds Of Chicago on supporting vocals and Dawson on guitars, Maya dove right into five days of intense recording and 'Can You See Me?' is the result. With only one vocal retake in the whole session, the group recorded live off the floor. In Maya's words, 'Can You See Me?' became a tribute to human cooperation and the merging of artistic visions with all the contributions from the musicians coming together. But, as good as the music supporting Maya is, her voice and songs are always the central focus. Melodically challenging, lyrically compelling and beautifully phrased, Maya's songs reflect on experiences with an insight one would usually expect from a much more seasoned performer. "All of the songs are relevant to my own life. The title track, 'Can You See Me?' is about choosing to remove the masks we wear to reveal our true selves.
