Known for her hip urban moves on stage and colossal vocals in the booth, this diva is here to stay and build her position in the music industry.

Growing up on the contrary, Mayou was an extremely shy kid. She found it very hard to express herself, let alone depict the experiences that effected her. As time progressed she found peace and confidence in the magic of dance and music and took an oath to challenge her fear of expressing her feelings and use music to share this courage with others. Having her roots as a French- Canadian, she grew older asking her father to write out lyrics to popular English songs, which she would therefore memorize and customize to her flavour and style. “Music was never played loud enough and I could never get enough of it.”, says Mayou who genuinely wants to create something new and trendy.

Mayou, since a young age was closely related to family members suffering from severe illnesses. On one hand she saw the talent and potential these people carried and on the other hand she dealt with their self destructive methods of living. She learned and appreciated the value of health, life and knew not everyone has the opportunity to live a blessed customary life. Being the youngest in a family of three daughters, Mayou always looked up to her older sisters but knew her path in life was not only different but adventurous and theatrical. She finally discovered her true self in music and dance. Music became Mayou’s first raw and real recognizable reflection. Music revealed her to her inner daemons; it took her on a wild ride to get over her timidity and to truly find the reason of her existence.
