About the Artist
A self-taught vocalist and musician, Mae Ya Carter Ryan has a singing voice unlike any other. She produces unique arrangements and versions of the songs she performs, whether they're jazz, gospel, R&B, pop, blues, or classical, with her signature soulful tone.
Growing up in a home of jazz lovers, she was about 4 when she started listening to musical legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Mahalia Jackson. At age 7, she asked her mother for voice lessons, singing around the house when her mother didn't sign her up right away. She has been performing ever since and has appeared on network news programs such as WGN’s Morning Show, CBS’s Someone You Should Know segment, WCIU’s You and Me This Morning, ABC’s Heart and Soul, and WTTW PBS. She has appeared on cable television shows such as the Ovation Network’s Young Marvels (a 10-week series featuring child prodigies), Hallmark’s Home and Family Show, and others. Articles featuring her story and performances have appeared in major publications such as the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Reader, and other local publications.
