The Time Is Now: Melbourne’s RnB underground gem Maya Rose stands up for the ladies on ‘Mind The Gap’

Unleashing the first track from her upcoming project which has been made despite the challenges around this horrible pandemic, Maya Rose is at her glorious best on the new single all about telling the boys that she has had enough on ‘Mind The Gap‘.

Maya Rose is a scintillating Melbourne, Australia-based indie RnB/soul singer-songwriter and keyboardist, who has decided to step up to the plate and hit a home run on all those small-minded men who don’t support women in the local music business.

‘‘The song is about the gender gap, and female empowerment. It’s also about my experience of being a woman in the music industry. Many times I’ve felt I wasn’t being listened to or taken seriously as a woman, and couldn’t speak my mind. I’ve been excluded and unsupported in the industry by ‘boys clubs’. It’s time that we not only talk about the disadvantages women face every day in our community; it is important to express the issues creatively. I want to hear more messages of female empowerment in the music we consume. I’m releasing ‘Mind the Gap’, because “we’re still not equal yet.”’ Maya Rose

After building on this track for a few years but never finding the right producer who shared her vision, Julian Steel came into the mix at the perfect time, and helped make this a special treat for all listeners.

Sung with a supremely soulful energy which shows her clear frustration, Maya is able to elegantly explain what is on her mind with such incredibly beautiful vocals and smartly-penned lyrics. You feel annoyed on her behalf that in 2021 this is still happening, as you hope that one day soon things will be truly fair for all. Just the way it should be.

Mind The Gap‘ from the inspiring Australian RnB solo artist Maya Rose, is one of those heartfelt anthems that is made with that rare love that is so truthful. She has experienced that the gap that is way too wide between men and women in this fickle industry, with so many double standards which need to be vanquished forever. The time is now.

Addictive Kisses: Manchester’s radiant indie-pop artist Minerva Daisy wants to get out of feeling trapped on ‘Substitute’

As she vividly tells us the tumultuous story about feeling so overwhelmed from a highly seductive but ultimately soul-destroying love, Minerva Daisy is absolutely brilliant on her new single called ‘Substitute‘.

Minerva Daisy is a spellbinding Manchester, UK-based indie-pop singer-songwriter and keyboardist, who has a wildly special voice and makes the type of music that has your attention on her closely, as she eagerly swirls your heartbeat into a spin with her stunning tone.

As we take a sip from the story about how being with someone that has cleverly wrapped their powerful fingers around you to keep you in – while you try and get out quickly but are trapped inside by a supremely manipulative person – who has you exactly where they want you.

She sweetly sings with such heart and determination, with her lyrics written so well and with that extra class that separates her from the rest. On an vibrant beat that suits her voice perfectly, this is an excellent song that so many will relate to as we remember those times we loved the kisses so much – but ultimately they were tainted with poison – that seeped like evil fluid into our kind veins, to freeze us like a statue while we are still awake.

Substitute‘ from Manchester’s dazzling indie-pop artist Minerva Daisy, is a catchy song and truthful track that has you thinking deeply about who you lend your heart to, as it can be dangerous if the wrong person has control.
