INSPIRED BY TRAGEDY MAYBE MAY SHARE NEW SINGLE “BETTER” – LISTEN!
Inspired by the tragic events that led to the suicide of a friend, “Better”, the latest single from Mississauga rock-trio Maybe May is out today. Listen HERE!
The message of the song is, “we can always strive to be better as human beings. For some of us it could mean at our jobs, at a sport or playing an instrument but what we are focusing on is our relationships with one another. Our thoughts & actions, how we treat others as well as the words we speak have lasting impressions,” says Demetrius, singer-songwriter & guitarist for the band.
The project supported by a Mississauga Arts Council grant was produced and engineered by Juno Award-winning Kevin Dietz (The Glorious Sons, Alexisonfire) and was recorded at Toronto’s famed Union Sound Company and Missisauga’s internationally renowned Metalworks Studios.
Earlier this year, the band won “Established Music Group” at the Mississauga Arts Awards and released the pop-rock track “Survive Satellite“. The track was added to CBC Rock Canada and featured on X 92.9, X 100.3, CJAI 92.1, 94.9 The Rock, 96.9 Radio Humber, & 98.3 CIFM. It also saw features at Buzz Music, The Music Bugle, Drop The Spotlight, Tinnist, That Chick Krys, FYI Music News and the music video premiered via 102.1 The Edge.

MAYBE MAY might have a name that suggests neither here nor there, but rest assured, this Mississauga trio are very much affirmed in their sound and style no matter the season. Fronted by Demetrius (vocals/guitar), Rian (bass) and Vitaly (drums), their sound draws listeners in by seamlessly blending heavy instrumentation with graceful melodies which provide a rich tapestry for delivering messages of love, loss and betrayal.
MAYBE MAY’s debut ‘Eden Project’ EP (Oct ’14) saw the band play for the first time ever at Canadian Music Week and Indie Week while picking up a nod from Toronto Independent Music Awards (TIMA) for Best Alternative/Indie in 2015. Following the release of two digital singles in 2017, the triad headed towards a definitive direction with their sophomore ‘C R I M E S’ EP (Jan ’18). Nominated for Best Rock at Mississauga Music Awards in 2018, their live set matured as they shared stages with the likes of Deadset Society, POLARITY, Red Handed Denial and The Creepshow across Ontario and Quebec. Furthering their foothold in the region, they placed in the Top 8 at 97.7 HTZ FM’s Rocksearch contest.
