Maya Rae
Maya Rae Band

Maya Rae has been singing professionally since the age of 12. She recorded her first album (Sapphire Birds) of jazz and classic pop standards at 13, and went on to sing with some of the biggest names in Canadian jazz. It’s understandable that much of what’s been written about Maya has focused on how much she’s accomplished at such a young age.  

The first half of 2020 saw the release of Maya’s sophomore album, Can You See Me?. Confident and vulnerable, soulful and revealing, the songs on the record are as impressive as you will hear anywhere. Produced by veteran roots musician and multiple Juno Award winner Steve Dawson, Can You See Me? takes the listener on a journey through the soul of a deeply talented young artist. Garnering rave reviews from CBC, the album went on to be nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards (Young Performer, New/Emerging Artist).
