London-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Maya Delilah has released her new single “Necklace” via Blue Note/Capitol.
“‘Necklace’ is a song about feeling so connected to someone whilst also having doubts and worries,” says Maya. “Something I think we all feel from time to time. It was written in LA with Josh Grant and Trey Campbell. The song came together faster than most songs I’ve made and is one of my favourites. It feels nostalgic, warm, and perfect for a road trip drive.”
“Necklace” follows Maya’s bittersweet love song “Silver Lining,” produced by Doug Schadtwho is best known for his work on Maggie Rogers’ EP Now That The Light Is Fading. Spinned multiple times by Mollie King on BBC Radio 1’s Future Pop, “Silver Lining” was notably praised byThe Line of Best Fit(“Showcasing the infinite extent of her artistry by delving into new depths of song-writing, Maya Delilah is definitely one to watch”) and theEvening Standard among others.
Her previous single “Pretty Face” was a soulful pop-rock slow jam that turned a disappointing relationship into an amusing and irrepressible kiss-off showcasing Maya’s delightfully pointed sense of humour and impressive guitar chops. Maya also made a memorable appearance on the 2022 collection Blue Note Re:imagined II where she put her own distinct twist on Cassandra Wilson’s cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon.”
A 23-year-old singer-songwriter and guitarist from North London, Maya attended the prestigious BRIT School whose alumni include Adele, Amy Winehouse, and FKA twigs, among many others. While building up a devoted following on Tik Tok and Instagramwhere she gained notice for her incredible guitar abilities, Maya started self-releasing music in 2020 and has already racked up more than 50 million streams of fan favourites including “Breakup Season,” “Tangerine Dream,” and “Moonflower.”
