Hot off the heels from her collaboration with Flume on ‘Say Nothing’, today MAY-A announces new dates for her east coast Australian tour, ahead of her international live debut supporting Gayle in LA next month, 5SOS national tour dates later this year, and a tour across UK/Europe supporting Wallows (Dylan Minnette) in 2023. BUY TICKETS HERE.

In 2021 alone, MAY-A received her first ARIA nomination for ‘Best Breakthrough Act’, in the wake of her debut EP Don’t Kiss Ur Friends, which launched to a stream of international praise. Recognised by Vogue as one of “the next generation of Australian musicians”; a “rising pop talent” by Billboard and recurring triple j mainstay amongst praise from VarietyDorkPAPER, and many more.

Steadying to burst into 2022, MAY-A also celebrated landing at #101 in triple j’s Hottest 200, features, collaborations, and performances with some of the nation’s most respected and burgeoning stars – The Veronicas, DMA’S, Budjerah,and now, Flume. ‘Say Nothing’ marked the return of Flume and news of his forthcoming album Palaces, due May 20. “Working with Flume on ‘Say Nothing’ has been a really incredible experience,” MAY-A says. “I’m such a big fan of Harley’s so it’s unbelievable to be in a position to create music with someone I look up to and can learn so much from. His creative process is a really inspiring thing to be a part of. I’m so excited for everyone to hear the song!” 

This May, Don’t Kiss Ur Friends will be shared live for the first time ever, where MAY-A will give the intimate life moments threaded across her debut EP, the live girl band experience.

Songwriting since age twelve, Maya Cumming has honed a brand of lyricism that marries the classic pop structures and storytelling of the parental favourites that permeated her childhood home, together with the nonchalant Gen Z cool of Clairo, and the suburban poetry of Lorde.
With her poignant, elliptical storytelling, clear-eyed observational lyricism, and songwriting full of musical left-turns, as MAY-A she interrogates the realities of youth with clarity and maturity beyond her nineteen years to global acclaim.
