It seems the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke seemed to come out of the blue and is everywhere nowadays. Being the stand out star of the latest season of Netflix‘s “Stranger Things” and having a brief role in Quentin Tarantino‘s controversial “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood“, as well as releasing two singles ahead of her first album.
The two amazing songs by the 21 year old actress have a beautiful and calm tone to them, reminiscent of something like Cat Stevens or Jim Croce. “To Love A Boy” is a song about Maya wanting to feel the same way about a boy as she does the ocean, as you can tell by the lyrics of the song. And “Stay Open” was written a year after the first when she had finally fallen in love. Obviously these songs have great influence on Maya and you can feel that within the music.
I feel as though this is only the start of a great career for Maya and with her father at her side openly cheering her on and supporting her, there is nothing she can’t do.
