"Stay Sparkly" is the true belief and optimistic mantra of a young woman who has once seen incredibly dark days. Maya Jenkins - also known professionally as Maya J in the music industry - is the actress, singer and songwriter born and bred in the entertainment capital of the world, who coined the expression.
The now experienced, well-rounded performer was born with the gift of music, and did that & only that for years. "Music has always been with me. It's always been in my family. I could sing before I could even speak, and I took my first ever music lesson when I was 5." Growing up in a performing arts community, she began playing the violin, which still remains her top instrument to date.
Maya longed to include acting in her her life of arts. After the firm decision was made to pursue the passion, Maya set her sights extremely high. Jenkins scored her first role in the short film masterpiece "MUTED" starring Chandra Wilson and Malcolm - Jamal Warner, and this would set the stage for her successful career in television & film. She would carry this knowledge and well-deserved credit on to accompany her on more successes in both her acting and music fields. To date, Maya has been seen on Freeform (formerly ABC Family), HBO, Nickelodeon, and a handful of popular streaming networks.
While there are many miles to go, Maya J moves ahead as a strong force with a mission.
After the release of the single "Come Find Me" - which will be one of the singles on her upcoming debut musical compilation entitled "Symptoms of Life" - she began gaining more traction for her writing and musical composition abilities. The recording's music video premiered on VEVO and has appeared inside many popular young adult shopping destinations across North America.
She has been consistent in thankfulness and humility, even after the success of "Come Find Me", and the song earning Maya her very first major radio play, nationwide.
Maya J reminds fans that her everyday motto, 'Stay Sparkly', truly comes from an emotional place in her follow-up singles, "Like You" and "Hurricane". While the singer-songwriter gains major style points for co-producing both of the self-written records, she continues to show off her passionate, sensual, heartfelt, & moody tendencies with a recording that officially puts her in the lanes of pop music veterans. "Like You" impressed many with its touching lyrics, beautiful melody, and the eye-catching music video it has to match. Maya J's newest solo releases include the sultry pop-r&b smooth jam "Trouble", and a cinematic-pop track called "Home". The latter was originally written & composed for a major television project; when the series didn't come to fruition, Maya decided to release the recording "Home" as a commercial single distributed under her label's banner.
Her music career has been continuing on strong by songwriting for popular artists, television series, & networks including Freeform / ABC. Expect to find out more about her currently undisclosed television projects, and more music from Maya J to hit our speakers in the months to come.
"In addition to entertaining people & enjoying my passions throughout life, one of my goals is to give people the courage to be authentically themselves. It's okay to march to the beat of your own drum - I hope to always live by that example."
- Maya J
