December 17, 2021 | By: Rock Industry
Maha Jeffery started off as a bedroom musician at the young age of 17… fast forward to the present day and he’s known for his electrifying showmanship coupled with powerful vocals. Cementing himself as the most distinguishable voice in the Malaysian music scene, Maha’s new offering ‘Daisy’ certainly lives up to expectations. Bringing you up to speed, Maha spent his multi-instrumental days sessioning for various acts in Malaysia but stepped into the spotlight on his own when he released his first single ‘Sleep’. He then fronted hard-hitting rock band, TMJB, playing venues all around South East Asia, and events for high profile multinational companies and celebrities. Maha is currently based in Camden, London.
He released his 2018 EP ‘Changes’ while living in Oxford, UK and coupled it with a mini tour around London, Manchester, Amsterdam and Oxford .Upon returning to Malaysia, he spent 2 years focusing on TMJB before Covid hit and they disbanded. He spent a year learning how to produce his own music and returned with his first solo release in 2 years with ‘Watermelon Juice’. In 2021, he has released 4 singles so far, all culminating towards his first full length album, C.A.I.S.O (Con Artist Intergalactic Space Opera) to be released in 2022.
Speaking about the enchanting new release ‘Daisy’, Maha had this to say, “Daisy is about finding solace in grief. It’s about seeking comfort in the loss of a loved one through the memories you had with them. I wrote this song for my girlfriend whose grandfather had recently passed at the time. It was never intended to be for me. It wasn’t until my own grandfather passed when I realised that maybe it was meant for me as well.”
