Maja plays in Bendigo this weekend.

SOULFUL singer-songwriter Maja is bringing her new single, Woman I’ve Become, and its empowering message, to Bendigo this weekend.

The Melbourne-based songstress is known for her thought-provoking songwriting and her latest work is no different.

She will hit the stage at the Old Church on The Hill in Quarry Hill tomorrow night.

Released last month, Woman I’ve Become is about becoming the woman/person you want to become and being okay with where you are at, according to Maja (pronounced my-ah).

“Woman I’ve Become is about being okay with not being the person you want to be yet, but knowing that you’ll get there,” she said.

“It’s like saying ‘I know I have a long way to go but I’ll get there… in my own time’.”

Maja draws from influences such as Laura Marling and Fiona Apple reminiscent of musicians in days past.

The music video for the single came out on June 29 before Maja embarked on a national tour starting at Croxton Uniting Church.

Maja plays HandleBar tonight before playing alongside Pat Ward and Sherri Parry at the Old Church on the Hill tomorrow night from 7.30pm.
