Toronto’s Maya Killtron has shown us that the funk lives on and that 80’s retroism is still cool, her latest release ‘Never Dance Alone’ is a shining beacon of all that to be adored from the time of shell suits and over sized sunglasses.
Killtron explains ‘Never Dance Alone’ as, “The record I’ve always wanted to make. I spent a lot of time writing music that was chasing trend but when I finally got in the studio with Miloš (Producer) he reminded me how important it was to be myself. I’m a trained classical violinist and jazz arranger who loves to sing funk and soul. They can work together. I finally figured out how to write without apology and to be proud and fearless of the music I hear in my head. That is what ‘Never Dance Alone’ is. I was able to touch every part of the process this time around, from charting out and arranging the horns and strings to singing every single background part and lead.”
