Tommy Faith – triple j Unearthed review – “Time”
“Lovely voice from Maya Rose on this moving record. Throwing back to some classic 90s R&B here!”

‘Time’ Music Video Premiere – scenestr
“Heavy with eerie piano loops, delectably sparse electronic production and Maya’s haunting vocals, ‘Time’ pounds with a slow-burn of R&B, soul magic that’s sure to catch your attention. Something akin to a Vera Blue-Billie Eilish love child if you need an audio reference.”

Interview with Forte magazine
“Fusing soulful vocals, ballad-driven piano, pounding R&B beats and lively jazz, ‘Time’ encompasses periods of music from yesteryear, from ‘90’s urban R&B to ‘70’s soul.”

Single Premiere for ‘See You Again’ – TheMusic.com.au
“Melbourne R&B talent Maya Rose has produced a stunning debut single with See You Again”

‘See You Again’ Music Video Premiere / BTS & Interview – CLIPPED.TV
“From the very opening shots of this video, hanging champagne flutes and the stylish décor of this cocktail bar, “See You Again” exudes class. However, it’s when Maya Rose makes her first appearance, delivering her words with that trademark sultry restraint, that the tone for the video is truly set.”

Declan Byrne – triple j Unearthed review – “See You Again”
“contorting and bending my body to this snake charmer.”
