Maya Caballero / Bio

Maya Caballero is an Americana singer-songwriter / musician born and raised on 42nd street in New York City. Sooth your soul with her adult like lullabies, as you step back in time to her whimsical 1920's ragtime/ Dixieland style, encompassing folk, a little bit of bossa nova, and blues influences from her travels across the United States and throughout Europe.

She is self taught on piano and guitar composing her first song on piano at age 7. Her performing career commenced at the age of 17 in NYC's East Village Anti-Folk scene at The Sidewalk Cafe. Anti-Folk was created in the mid 80's by Lach, where such talents as Suzanne Vega, Beck, Regina Spector, and the Moldy Peaches got their start.

Currently she is preparing for the release of her first album that was recorded in Tucson, Arizona at Waterworks Recording and Loveland Studios with Calexico, Salvador Duran, Thoger Lund, Naim Amor, and Marco Rosano, to name a few. Two songs on this album, “All Roads Lead to Here" and "beni", are featured on the soundtrack for the indie film "White Boy Brown". Additionally, you can hear her on the albums of Toby Goodshank "Pray to You" (The Moldy Peaches), Pimps of Joytime "High Steppin", Soft Black "Blue Gold", Brian Hullfish (Missing Parts), and Alex Chappo "Rattle the Bone".
