A TALENTED Greenock teenager is celebrating the release of her first single at the age of just 15.

Maya McCrae, known as Maya Jane, has unveiled her song 'Everyday's the Same' on all the major streaming platforms including Spotify and iTunes.

The tune is the first song she ever penned and was written when she was 13.

Singer songwriter Maya recorded the track at studios in Glasgow in September and she's overjoyed that people all over the world now have the chance to hear it.

Maya said: "It's really emotional for me and so exciting at the same time.

"I wrote the song for my friend who was going through a lot at the time and was really depressed and upset.

"It was so frustrating that I couldn't help her so I decided to send her a message in the song.

"People think it's a happy song when they listen to it the first time but the lyrics are really emotional.

"I'm so happy to be getting my music out there."

Maya, who is in fourth year at Clydeview Academy, has been singing since she was in primary two and acting since she was eight.

She grew up listening to everything from the Bee Gees, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie to Arctic Monkeys, Slipknot and Metallica.

Her music caught the attention of promoters B12 Entertainment earlier this year and she recorded the song with their help.

Maya focused on playing the guitar during lockdown, played live on Facebook regularly, and even managed to write two more songs.

The determined musician says she's looking forward to following the progress of streams of the single and wants to continue to get her music out there.

She told the Tele: "I can't wait until I can say 'Alexa, play Everyday's the Same'.

"Things are really gathering pace now and the future is looking good.

"I couldn't be prouder of myself."

Maya is due to play the Gin House Hotel on February 20, as part of a B12 Entertainment showcase called 01475.
