Video from my first Sofar Sounds show ever! Enjoy and share!


A few weeks ago, ArinMayaMade was commissioned to make a CRWN for a Queen named Kalilah of Messinabottle (if you don't know, now you know). This is how it came out, and now, we've been inspired to keep the party going. Crwns are now available via the shop, so click through and get to Queening! (or Kinging, if you will) :)

The time has FINALLY come! We've released our debut project! Who is we? The Experi3nce - the band you've all been coming out to see me perform with for the past 2 years!  What's that you say? You haven't caught a show yet? NO worries! This project is LIVE, so you'll hear and feel the real Experi3nce AND if you listen closely, you'll hear at least one snafu I made while recording. We decided to keep it in for the live feel. Let me know if you find it and enjoy!

Wednesday night, April 26th, I'm playing again at Rockwood and I'm so excited to introduce a new song called Choice. There is no video yet, just lyrics and music. Hope to see you there!

Introducing the #spreadlovemovement

At the end of 2016, as I observed the world outside my window getting crazier and crazier - and often not believing the things that were happening - I decided I needed to DO something. After a little deliberation (with myself), I decided to stand in the light that is my maker self and make these little pins to literally spread love. 
It's a small wearable, giftable, shareable pin you can attach to yourself to become a walking beacon of love - as if you aren't that already!

I see so many people daily on the trains or walking down the street who need love and need to know that they are loved. So this is my offering and movement and hope: that we all take some major steps to #spreadlove NOW, before it's too late.


february shows!

For one magical week in the shortest month of the year, I'm playing 3 shows! Starting Sunday, February 12th through Saturday, February 18th, it's gonna be an amazing musical ride! Check out my show calendar for more info, but just know, this is only the beginning!


My Newest Project: The Sound of ArinMayA, Vol. 2


The a.m. light presents... we jazz nu

In honor of National Poetry Month and Chicago's late Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Gwendolyn Brooks, it's only appropriate that we jazz nu about it... Enjoy! 


- The Twinkle Project EP on Bandcamp - 


- Living Sound Sessions - 

On Saturday June 28th, I launched Living Sound Sessions at Chokmah Hair Lab in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Living Sound Sessions is a vehicle that transforms community through the exchange of sound.

The event was AMAZING and I was surrounded by beautiful souls who brought their full, vibrant selves and voices to share. ...and it was just the beginning.

As I grow further into creating and cultivating Living Sound Sessions, I am eager to learn, grow and accept all the help and support that will come. If you have attended, or would like to host Living Sound Sessions in your home or event space, please donate by clicking the button below and/or send a note to livingsoundsessions@gmail.com. I can't wait to share sound between us!
