DJ Mai Girl started her love affair with music the first time her mother played her Stevie Wonder's "Another Star". Life would never be the same. In the years to follow, she familiarized herself with more genres of music, including underground hip hop, pop, alternative, old school, electronic, Latin rhythms. While spinning these genres for ten years on public radio (on and off), she finessed her way into spinning for live events. DJ Mai Girl plays at fundraisers, private events and weddings all over the San Francisco and South Bay areas. She consistently plays one MJ, Stevie, or Prince song every set to remind herself of why she started DJing in the first place. Her unique blend of genres and hand-picked selections keep people moving all night.
After 15 years of touring with Coldplay, Pink, and Rod Stewart and hearing their music in major movies, The Brothers Koren experienced first hand how restrictive the music industry was to their expression and knew they wanted to redefine the landscape. They launched the writer/producer team BRÅVES as an experiment in finding value in expression without rules. Now, through the development of The Songwriter's Journey, they are helping others reclaim the music they abandoned to do the same.
