Maina Doe represents the multi-faceted nature of contemporary music, with earnest experimentation at her core. Born and raised in the Indonesian city of Bandung, Maina was enveloped in a vibrant, tropical environment that lit her creative spark, and she began singing from an early age. Later moving to Sydney, Australia, Maina dived headfirst into the city's creative communities, participating in writing and vocal sessions with talents from Sydney's burgeoning jazz, soul and R&B communities, which lead to independent single releases Delusion and Unwritten Laws featuring Genesis Owusu, which garnered support from Soulection, Rinse FM and Jamz Supernova. Maina’s lauded 2022 single ‘Primal Design’ saw extensive global DSP support, and love from the likes of RUSSH, BBC 1xtra, Vice and more. Reinforcing her unique position as a multi-sensory artist, she has starred in campaigns with fashion heavyweights Vogue, Chanel and Calvin Klein and was invited to perform at the Sydney Opera House as part of Liminal, a music film series where unique live performances are captured for the screen.

Quotable Lyrics:

Song: “LET HER BE” (single)

“Frozen time

No compromise

She don’t want ya lies

Just for tonight

You can get close

You can get closer”


“Posting up her story

Black lace on her body

Sights set on a hottie

Might jet from her conscience…

So why you calling up suprised?

Let’s do a little exercise…

You gotta be honest she ghosting

For the evening and living as another bitch”
