For Maina, music is the thread that ties together every memory, every life goal, and every important moment in her life. From the early days of getting online and downloading music to the explosive influence of Outkast, every step of her journey has been a quest to find her own voice and express herself creatively.

But it was a mind-blowing performance by Moses Sumney at the Sydney Opera House that truly lit the fire of inspiration within Maina, stirring something deep within her that stewed and stewed until it cooked up the perfect ingredients for her unique sound. And it was at Mary’s Underground that she began to understand the feeling she wanted to convey on stage, a feeling that still carries her performances today.
