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.
