Buzz Interviews Maya Zita

Throughout high school I also participated in Viva Singers Toronto as a main chorus member and chamber chorus member, as well as Beach Hill Choir. I started recording for one of Harrison Fine’s clients at FINE Production studios which was just below the Kensington Sound studio. Harrison and I became friends and have been working together ever since. He’d write the instrumentals and I would write the lyrics and melodies of the songs.
