SHAMELESS MAYA – “Music Is The Heartbeat To My Creativity”


You got me trippin but never say “ah ah ah”… That’s what you get. That’s all you get. Music Matters to me because it’s
storytelling. We all have stories to tell. I love to explore all the possibilities
whether it’s through visuals, whether it’s through music, sound, clothing, makeup and music is one of those things that just you like feel it in your core. It’s
a rhythm, to me it’s like a heartbeat of the story that I’m trying to tell. I’m
Shameless Maya aka Maya Washington. I have a YouTube channel. I’m an artist
that uses the digital interwebs to tell my story. One of my earliest memories
associated to music going over to my cousin’s house. My uncle was a musician
and he had like the record player the album, every time he played Phil
Collins, that was just part of our weekend ritual and so when I hear Phil
Collins it makes me feel warm and bubbly. I just think of my childhood with my
family. Music to me is the heartbeat to my creativity. If I get
stuck I’m either listening to instrumental or I’m watching music
videos. If I’m gonna write and I just need something to get me out I’ll switch
up the music I’m listening to. For me when I’m editing the most crucial part
is finding the right track and it could take hours just to find that one song
that helps me articulate what I’m trying to say. I definitely think music helps me
tell my story visually. I love Epidemic Sound. I used to spend hours on Soundcloud looking up producers, writing them, seeing if they could all get up.
Like Epidemic took all of that away. It allowed people like me to find other
creatives that really just wanted to get their music heard. It’s like literally at
my fingertips. I just think it’s a dope platform for creatives. At the end of
the day they just want to create and collaborate. When you don’t have enough, that’s what
is the spark in the catalyst for creativity. It’s not about having the
latest and greatest, it’s not about having the most. It’s about what you do
have and making that shit work. That’s what creativity is. Go out there
and create and don’t let not having what you think you need stop you. It’s just
work with what you got and you will get more along the way.
