Paula Maya

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.
