Paula Maya

Details

Paula Maya performs Thursday, October 25, at Super Happy Fun Land, 2610 Ashland, 713-880-2100. Gadget and El Gato Negrito are also on the bill. Maya also performs Sunday, October 28, and Wednesday, October 31, at Dean's Credit Clothing, 316 Main, 713-227-3326, as well as Tuesday, October 30, at Mojo Risin', 1600 Shepherd, 713-426-1505.

This is a homecoming of sorts for Paula Maya, so the Brazilian-born Seattle pianist and chanteuse is sticking around for a while, playing multiple shows over the next week. (See below.) Before Maya moved to the Pacific Northwest, where she also hosts a radio show, she lived in Houston and recorded her debut album, 1995's New Perspectives, here. Her latest, this year's Paula, is a gossamer collection of pristine pop that flirts with bossa nova, rock, electronica and even ska as it calls to mind similarly singular singers such as Tori Amos, Björk and Feist.
