Award winning singer/songwriter Maya Solovéy has been invited to perform at the Tinderbox Music Festival. Held on September 26th at the Brooklyn's Southpaw, Maya will be performing the Underground Stage at 8:30 PM. This adds to her ongoing September weekly residency at Brooklyn's Pete's Candy Store, which have combined a merging of food and music under the themes Indian Summer/Harvest Moon (09/07), Brazilian & Latin Night (09/14), Heartbreak Hotel (09/21) and Instant Grati (09/28).
"I'm so excited to be playing this wonderful event!" Maya noted. "I think all-women festivals create an incredible energy, that is synergistic between both the performers and the audience. Plus there are so many incredible artists on this bill (some of which are friends of mine), how can I not get an estrogen high?"

As an international artist and a trilingual songwriter, Maya Solovey has merged the acoustic/folk songwriting tradition into the territories of pop, bossa nova, and even the high drama of cinematic scoring. Her music is a surprising, yet rational marriage between many cultures as she sings in Portuguese, Spanish and her native English tongue. Her new self-titled album, Maya Solovey, released July 15th, has already gathered notice from journalists and music critics. Her song "Eu Vi" was featured in a Ralph Lauren runway video for winter fashion week, while her song "Como Yo Lloro Por Ti" will be featured on a in a FIFA World Cup compilation, and another 3 songs will be featured in an upcoming shark documentary called "Shark Allies". Tom Moon, on air critic for NPR, and journalist for Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine said, "Here's a rarity: An original voice who really is original! Drawing inspiration from all over the map, Maya Solovey has developed a deep, enchanting sound that's unlike anything else out there right now." Bassy Bob Brockmann, a multiple Grammy winning producer/mixer said, "Maya Solovey is an exceptional songwriter, possessed of a voice that is haunting, soothing, and erotic all at the same time. Her music, I'm sure, will change the world."
