Sometimes, a musical accident happens which brings together strands from the past to make something genuinely new and original, but somehow familiar. Maya is one of those bands.
Kim Chandler’s voice needs no processing, no augmenting, and simply demands to be enjoyed. Her songs come from, and speak to, the heart and explore self-belief, unity and redemption. The twin acoustic guitar tapestry provided by Bernie Devine and John Tobin creates a sensitive but musically interesting support to Kim’s innocent purity, blending folk, jazz and blues with world music flavours including Spanish and Indian tonalities.
The band formed in 2002 as a distillation of a one-off musical collaboration amongst some of the leading musicians in heritage-steeped St Albans.

'Revelations' is inspirational songwriting - Songs composed and sung from the heart with a true respect for the divine. Featuring 9 songs, this album takes the listener to a world of peace and calm.
