Hello, lovely soul! Thanks for visiting my site! I'm Maya Elizabeth--a worship leader, singer-songwriter and recording artist. I believe we were made to live full, not empty. So, I write thought-provoking, inspirational-soul music for the listener who needs a little healing, truth and love.
I was born in L.A. but raised in Baltimore, MD, where I first started writing around age 6. Lyrics, poetry and journaling have always been tools for me to process, create, and connect with my sense of purpose. Recording, performing and worship leading are primarily how I express my gifts.
You'll see/hear me as a guest artist or worship leader in all sorts of settings. Flowing so much between vastly different spaces has shaped my unique meld of a sound--which is very much (but not solely) coffeehouse, acoustic guitar, reflective, soul vibes with a contemporary-gospel flair.
I'm also a proud Howard University School of Business (Marketing) alumnae! Outside of my own music, I love helping other creatives think strategically, tell their stories, and get their websites up!
My latest EP, "Space To Fill" (featuring my brother JR Hairston on guitar) is available on all of your favorite streaming platforms--Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and more! It's accompanied by my Space to Fill candle, journal, and music commentary podcast. For this project, I wanted you to have a whole listening experience, complete with ambiance, meditative prompts and behind-the-scenes insight on the creative process. So, be sure to check out my shop and order your listening bundes while you're here on the site! As you listen, I hope you're refreshed and inspired!
If so, feel free to reach out and let me know! I love a kind DM, tag or email. Also, follow me on social media and streaming platforms, share with your friends, and/or inquire about booking m.e. for your next event!
In Healing, Truth + Love,
