Name: Amber Maya.

Age (of project): Six months.

Hometown: Christchurch, Barbados (and Auckland).

Associated Acts: Producer/composer extraordinaire - James Risbey.

Sounds like: Warm synths and smooth vocals with hints of trip hop and 90s house.

Musical guilty pleasure: This week, definitely Queen Latifah 'Fly Girl'.

Formative musical experience: When I was three or four, I played the triangle and the tambourine for a few performances (probably one) with the Children's Band at Vauxhall Methodist Church. Took a long hiatus from that, and started singing and playing guitar at 18.
