Biography

Edward Maya born Eduard Marian Ilie on June 29, 1986 is a Romanian DJ, performer and record producer of electronic dance music. Being raised in an environment that treasures the true artistic value of musicianship and revels in the mastering of instrumental skill, it was Edward’s deep rooted love and passion for music that encouraged him to start his career as an international artist attending Bucharest’s George Enescu Music High School.

While continuing his studies at the Bucharest Conservatory, Edward Maya began writing songs, one of which became an entry in the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest, and collaborating with a number of Romania’s leading producers, earning credits on different recordings. He become a successful producer in his own right with the work he put in the making of the romanian band Akcent album “No Tears” , which scored a number of hits in Europe like “Stay with Me”, “That’s My Name” and “Lover’s Cry”.

Although he’s only been in the public eye only since 2009, he crammed at least a decade’s worth of career highs and lows into those few short, high-profile years. He came to prominence grace to his new and unique touch to the house music scene with the unmistakable accordion sounds that made him a global figure in clubs all over the world in only one year after the release of his first single as an artist in the summer of 2009 called “Stereo Love” featuring Russian DJ Vika Jigulina.
