THE URBAN GIRL NEXT DOOR Maya Milan, known for her eclectic sound and strong commanding vocals, is taking the industry by storm by recapturing and reviving the authentic R&B sound, while simultaneously giving it a new urban feel. Maya Milan, born Maya Russell on September 10, 1993 in Boston, Massachusetts, was raised in Maryland starting at a young age. Though Maya began singing at the age of three, her talents were brought to the forefront in the 4th grade after performing "If I Ain't Got You" by Alicia Keys at her school talent show. When Maya speaks about her biggest influences, she likes to recognize Mary J. Blige as an inspiration for her vulnerability, Beyoncé for her approach to capturing audiences through iconic performances, and the late and great Whitney Houston because of her powerhouse vocal ability. Representing the DMV (D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) and self-described as "The Urban Girl Next Door," Maya's music genuinely and soulfully chronicles life from the perspective of a maturing young women who is unafraid to be transparent about her journey.
