Maya Killtron makes music that is fun, feel-good and makes you want to dance. Her playful style and lush upbeat take on Modern Boogie have landed her features in Noisey, Earmilk, & Huffington Post. Singles have appeared in episodes of Broad City, Kim’s Convenience & soundtracked collections for Swedish fashion house Gina Tricot. Her vinyl 12” and limited edition 7” have sold out to collectors and boutique record shops around the world.
After releasing 2019’s Never Dance Alone 12” the Toronto based singer, violinist and DJ now finds herself at home in Modern Boogie and Funk. 2020 marked the release of her follow up EP Fired Up. Recorded at Palace Sound in Toronto it was the result of a partnership between Maya and producer Gil Masuda (Love Touch Records, The Precious Los). The EP features a long list of live musicians with arrangements all done by Killtron & long time collaborator Montreal/Vancouver based keyboardist/saxophonist La-Nai Gabriel. The music is every bit as joyful as Never Dance Alone but rings out with more confidence and maturity.
In addition to her career as a solo artist she is a frequent recording collaborator, writer, producer & touring/performing violinist/vocalist for many Canadian and International artists including The Arkells, Polaris Prize winning Haviah Mighty, Canada’s Walk of Fame, The Launch and is one of the voices of Eggo Waffle.
Partnering with Outrun Records (Calgary) and LoveTouch Records (Toronto) Maya is set to release a slew of singles leading up to her 2022 sophomore album Persimmon.
