Having to read hundreds of lines for an acting role is hard enough on its own.

It’s not a secret that Hawke’s way of expressing herself is through her music.

Maya Hawke is an emotional, amazing singer and writer. 

Her debut single “By Myself” was launched in March 2020. 

She released her first album called “Blush” very soon after her first single. 

A couple of Maya’s music videos have actually been directed by her father, Ethan Hawke.

When asked if she loves music more than acting, she agreed. 

Hawke says her music has helped her express herself, especially during the pandemic when everything was shut down and all she could do was work on her music.

Her biggest singing influences are Joni Mitchell, Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers, and Leonard Cohen.
