Brooklyn-born and raised songbird Maya Azucena is often described as the “hardest working artist I know.” The NY Post recently described Maya Azucena as having a “towering voice which has echoes of old-school divas, like Chaka Khan and Roberta Flack.” “Azucena comes across as a completely real character in her songs, someone you not only believe in, but you're rooting for to win in the end,” asserts the East Bay Express. As Performing Songwriter Magazine puts it: “Maya Who?! Won’t be a question people ask for long.” "Junkyard Jewel is - People's Music. Truly a blast of fresh air! ...Her incredible voice is out there in 3D and we are all better off for hearing it in it's purity." – Brian Michel Bacchus (Soul Feast Music; A&R/ Blue Note Records, Norah Jones) “…storytelling lyrics and soulful, soaring vocals.” – Billboard Magazine “It is an ambitious, acoustic album that should solidify her position as a soul superstar in the making” – SoulTracks.com (World’s #1 soul music website) “Junkyard Jewel…a remarkable new singer’s album” – Recording Magazine “Maya has a very beautiful, soul voice… and she's very convincing with what she is singing about" – Stephen Marley
