Maya Elena is a musician and songwriter living in Minneapolis, MN. She is currently in the process of recording her first album at Brewhouse Studios with
 
Thomas Buchanon, Zac Harding and Jason Fladager. This EP, with your help, will be released on September 15th at Icehouse, and pre-release at Shangrila Festival at Harmony Park!

She is seeking funding to cover costs of recording and production, session musicians, printing cds/merchandise, and origonal album artwork.

This EP will contain six origonal songs showcasing Maya's versatility as a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist.

"I'm so excited to be taking a snapshot of this moment in time as a musician. I love and appreciate wholly everyone who has supported me.
My lovely family, wonderful friends, inspiring musical and life teachers, fellow Midwest musicians and fans who appreciate where I'm going. All of you have shaped me into the artist I have become.
A contribution of any amount would help give me the time neccesary to perfect these songs, and to see a vision become reality. I see money as energy and have listed incentives per dollar amount below :)"
-Maya

Hi Everyone! I'd like to share with you...DONE DONE DONNNNNE; one song (Jazzmine) from the album!!
All the recording, mixing, and mastering are DONE!!
Holy!! I am booked on September 15th at Icehouse for our CD release show with a full band. Thanks to Pat from the band Fairfax, AK, who asked me to do a double release, they also recorded at Brewhouse with Rob Genadek.

I will have the CD available for early release at Shangrila Music Festival at Harmony Park the weekend of Sept 9th-11th :)

I had to extend my goal by a few hundred, as the production and packaging costs exceeded what I originally predicted. I am seeking a few more donations to help cover costs. If you donate $25, I will have a signed copy for you at the release show (or I can ship if you're out of town/state/can't attend)
