Meet Amber Maya: From Barbados to Berlin
She watched helplessly as death snatched her “first love.” But during her personal crisis, Barbadian-born artiste Amber Maya was able to breathe new life into an old talent.
She was born to New Zealander entrepreneur Scott Gribble and Barbadian Rozanne Gribble.
Amber and her mother shared an unbreakable bond. In fact, she was instrumental in many of the 27-year-old’s pursuits.
First, it was poetry, which would later help Amber turn her thoughts into lyrics. Then Rozanne watched and cheered as the Back Pedal singer took her first steps with the Louise Woodvine Dance Academy and made moves with Dance Strides Barbados.
And since her mother’s passing about five years ago, the Barbadian singer-songwriter has been forging forward with music.
