Maya Rae CD Release Event...

Maya Rae Can You See Me?

To be released Apr 3, 2020 on Black Hen Music
Produced by Steve Dawson
Arrangements: Steve Dawson
Recording Studio: Henhouse Studio - Nashville, TN
All compositions by Maya Rae and Gabriel Evan

CD Release Event
Apr 19, 2020 at Frankie's Jazz Club, Vancouver
Can You See Me is the eagerly awaited sophomore release from one of the most talented young Canadian artists of her generation and follow up to the very successful debut, Sapphire Birds

At just 14 years old, Maya Rae recorded her first album, a beautiful recording on Cellar Live that received numerous positive reviews, accolades, and a Top 5 entry on the Earshot National Jazz Charts. This new recording sees Maya join one of Canada's most respected roots and songwriter labels, Black Hen Music. The album places its focus on original compositions by Maya and her brother Gabriel, with arrangements and Production by multiple Juno Award winner and veteran guitarist Steve Dawson with a world-class group of musicians supporting her on the recording.

The new album was recorded March 2019 in the songwriter capital of the world, Nashville, TN. The new album represents an important next step in bringing Maya Rae's original voice to the world.

This album is focused on a unique sound blending of Maya's love of current and contemporary influences. As her first album was mainly focused on jazz classics, the goal on this project is to focus on creating a more soulful/current sound while incorporating musical influences ranging from Sarah Vaughan to Joni Mitchell.

The uncertainties of first love. Misgivings about a friend's choices. Thoughts that come and go.

The best music has the power to illuminate a moment in time more vividly than anything else. A song, well played and passionately sung, has a life of its own that goes beyond genre and temporary musical fashion.

The songs on Maya Rae's new release, 'Can You See Me?' - like those on Joni Mitchell's Blue or Tracy Chapman's self-titled debut album - are timeless and universal.

Poised at the crossroads between innocence and experience, Maya's voice communicates with an immediacy and commitment that most artists never attain. In an age when so much music feels overproduced and lacking in genuine emotion, Maya's songs come like a breath of fresh air.

Vital, committed and uplifting, 'Can You See Me?' is the real deal.

Featured on Can You See Me? with Maya are:

Steve Dawson - Producer, acoustic and electric guitars,
   12-string, pedal steel, vocals
Kai Welch - Organ, keyboard, Ukulele, Wurlitzer, vocals
Jamie Dick - Drums, percussion
Jon Estes - Bass, Cello
Sam Howard - Bass, Vocals
Allison Russell - Vocals
JT Nero - Vocals
Kristin Weber - Violin
Larissa Maestro - Cello
Charlie MCCoy - Vibes
Sheldon Zaharko - Engineering
Gabriel Evan - Co-Writer
