"If you're a songwriter, being a Korean adoptee, a woman and only four-feet-ten inches tall gives you a lot to talk about. St. Paul musician Mayda's big sound belies her diminutive size.
St. Paul, Minn. — In a crowd, it's easy to overlook Mayda. But on stage, it is hard not to notice her."
-Chris Roberts, MN Public Radio 12/14/2007
