Born in New York City, 23-year-old Maya Hawke is an actress, singer, and lyricist. Hawke is famously known for her statement role on Netflix’s Stranger Things, and can be seen in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Amanda Kramer’s Ladyworld, and the Netflix film Do Revenge.
Following the reception of her independently released A and B side singles in 2019, she released the deeply personal full-length album Blush. Hawke, who wrote the lyrics, continued her collaboration with Grammy Award-winning songwriter Jesse Harris, who wrote the music for the album.
Now, in 2022, on the heels of another Stranger Things season and feeling more inspired than ever, Hawke releases her sophomore album MOSS. Hawke introduced the album to the world sitting on a couch across from none other than Jimmy Fallon, where they also discussed Hawke’s vulnerable announce single “Thérèse”. Hawke followed up the dreamy, provocative announce track with sweet and sprawling “Sweet Tooth” and the lamenting “Luna Moth”.
