From the venue:On her new EP Habits, rising R&B songstress Maeta sounds comfortable and self-assured. Fully encompassing the highs and lows of young love, the project offers the Indianapolis-native, now Los Angeles-based artist, reflecting on past relationships that she’s outgrown (lead single “Teen Scene,” produced by Kaytranada) and contemplating the uncertainties that come with interpersonal connection (“Doesn’t Mean a Thing,” produced by Teddy Walton). It is a natural progression from her critically-acclaimed 2019 debut EP, Do Not Disturb, which introduced the world to Maeta’s signature sound: moody, emotional, and beautiful, with the singer’s luscious vocals always at the forefront. Her creative pursuits began early in her childhood. Her parents — mom is a visual artist, dad plays the drums — nurtured and encouraged their daughter’s creativity, and the music they played around the house, including the Eagles and John Mayer, became the building blocks of her sound.
