Selected Press

"Music for people with great taste."
Rolling Stone


“A voice we’d like to get lost in.”

American Songwriter

"Here's a rarity: An original voice who really is original!

Drawing inspiration from all over the map, Maya Solovéy has developed

a deep, enchanting sound that's unlike anything else out there right now."

Tom Moon, on air critic for NPR,

journalist for Rolling Stone, Spin Magazine

WFMU Radio NYC named debut album “Maya Solovey I:II”

in their list of top 10 albums of 2011. 


Hurry up and get this enchanting folk album!”

Glamour Magazine, France [Maya Solovéy, I:II]

“The new muse of the folk scene. A true voice.”
Vibrations Magazine, France

“Celestial and disarming. A magnificent album.”
Bulle Sonore Magazine, France

"Excellent songwriting with rich ingredients and a pop glaze;

wonderful variety and nuance that keeps the ear alert at all times.

A perfectly cultivated debut album."

Titel Magazine, Germany [Maya Solovéy, I:II]


"I am telling you to celebrate her entire collection of songs

when you’re done taking her Forte EP for a spin. Maya has a very pretty

voice which only gets better when she sings in Spanish.

(Check out her 2009 self-titled debut for that goodness.)"

Mia Jones, After Ellen

“Maya Solovey is turning the world of female singer-songwriters

upside down with her earthy vocals, sweeping instrumentation, and

a sound that's simultaneously pure and well-worn. Her voice is both

a dreamy whisper and a ghostly figure, and we can't get enough of it.”

Alyssa Coluccio, PureVolume


"Intimate and seductively sweet songs that put a spell on
the listener right from the start. A wonderful voice, well refined arrangements, and lyrics in English, Spanish, and Portguese."

Wild Magazine, Germany [Maya Solovéy, I:II]

“Soft, soothing vocals and haunting melodies that blend

with lush instrumentation to create a well-crafted set of songs.”

Absolute Punk

"Solovey proved that she can pull off lightness and wit
on her earlier work, and the best songs on Forte suggest

that she’s just as capable of big-time emotion."

Dave Bloom, Pop Matters

"Emotionally engaging... Endearing hooks... A brilliant songwriter"

Chris Bell, Ear Buddy

"Maya Solovéy is an exceptional songwriter, possessed of

a voice that is haunting, soothing, and erotic all at the same time.

Her music, I'm sure , will change the world."

Bassy Bob Brockmann,

Multiple Grammy winning producer/mixer

“A voice we’d like to get lost in.”


The Deli Magazine CMJ Live Show review, by Tracy Mamoun

Setting up downstairs was a glowing little lady in a golden glistening dress, Maya Solovey, Jewish Brooklyn-based indie songwriter, a 'folkie
at heart' in her own words. Her being Jewish only becomes relevant when pointed out that she had come with the most elaborate homemade buttermilk cornbread you could possibly imagine, and before the set (& actually once more for the road between the first two tracks), insisted on making sure everyone had had enough to eat/drink. Embracing the cliches. Love it.
Backed by guitar, bass and drums, playing guitar herself, she went on for
a delightful half hour of lush love stories served with the warmest, most welcoming attitude. Favourites? An original cover of Dolly Parton's classic 'Jolene' with some Middle-Eastern influenced vocals, an analogy via which
a relationship turns into a hot dog, and a little portuguese sensuality.
