***I HAVE ALL BUT STOPPED USING THIS MYSPACE PAGE AS I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF MURDOCH'S MYSPACE. PLEASE VISIT WWW.RICHMAYA.CO.UK
AND CONNECT WITH ME THERE - THANKS*** Rich Maya is a singer/songwriter based in the southwest of England. Singing has always been a big part of his life: performing in family concerts at the age of four and singing in national choirs by the age of twelve. At seventeen, he began teaching himself to play the guitar and wrote his first songs, and since then he has progressed through rock bands and blues jams, to end up where he is today.
He has also done some work to promote music, running a highly acclaimed acoustic showcase, where his focus was to offer a space in which musicians could perform to genuinely attentive audiences, and audiences would get to see just how much amazing talent there was on their doorstep.
As a man who has a fascination for the philosophical and the esoteric, many of his songs are the result of deeply felt universal questions. Such vulnerability and depth extends across his repertoire. This barefaced honesty, combined with able handling of a guitar, and a warm, but powerful voice, create a unique and engaging performance, unifying audience members from a wide variety of backgrounds in their sense of appreciation.
Rich has just released his new single Lisa's Harbour, which is being sold to raise money for The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. To hear a sample and purchase your copy, click on the banner.
