An emerging talent from the Sunshine Coast, singer-songwriter Mayah follows up her success debut single 'Endless Mistakes' (which has clocked up 445,000 streams) with 'Butterflies (The Rush Inside)' – "a song about the feeling you get when you first notice someone you are interested in".
Once again teaming with producer Peter Koppes (guitarist for The Church), with 'Butterflies...' Mayah has created a tranquil indie gem sparkling with folk-pop charm and vocals that pierce the heart with love.
"Most of my music is about healing, growth and personal empowerment," Mayah says. "I would like to be a voice of optimism and enthusiasm in spite of the challenges and difficulties we face, especially at this time of global trauma."
While only 18 years old, Mayah is an old hand at composing music having penned her first song aged 12 – 'Bye Bye Bully', which related to difficulties she was experiencing at school.
Ahead of the release tomorrow (24 March) of 'Butterflies (The Rush Inside)', scenestr is stoked to be able to offer you an exclusive stream of the track today. Enjoy.
With a sound she describes as 'soulful rock', Mayah says the time spent recording music is also a chance to discuss big-picture items. "When recording 'Butterflies (The Rush Inside)', we would regularly fall into deep and meaningful conversations about life, the universe and everything.
"The music seems to provoke joyful emotions which we found could cheer us up from our, at times, complicated lives. Me, seeing as I am 18, would more often than not just get the giggles."
While Mayah's upcoming shows have been cancelled due to the coronavirus, she plans to record and release more music in 2020.
