It's a pop/hip hop sound with really meaningful lyrics and a nice bounce. She released her first album, Age of Feminine, in 2007. Today's post is from her 2012 album, Integration.
She is an activist and her interests are described on a very thorough Wikipedia page:
Maize is an activist on women’s rights, environmentalism, and issues relating to poverty and racism. Her spiritual side is reflected in her music. She studies world and environmental issues, the power of intention, meditation, quantum physics, astrology, Tarot and indigenous wisdom. Maize feels her purpose in life is to make music that sends out good energy and that makes people think. In 2012, of her meditation practice, Maize said, "I learned Transcendental Meditation many years ago and found it to be life changing."This is an exciting find and Kellee's music has found a home on my playlist.
