I met singer/visionary Maya Azucena almost 15 years ago. We did an indie feature film; she was the lead and I played the villain. We had a lot of fun on the shoot getting to know each other as fellow struggling artists and fellow mixed chicks. Over the years, I saw Maya focus on her music–intensely! And she became a real role model for me in the way I pursued my art. She’s an independent music artist who manages her own career and what an amazing career it is. She travels all over the world performing for thousands and shares her positive messages for healing and uplift.
Maya started a new web series that chronicles her journey as an independent music artist. It’s a wonderful series and a great insight into the hard work of being an artist. I think you’ll like it a lot. I do. So check it out!–Heidi Durrow
