Eduard Marian Ilie (Romanian pronunciation: ['edu.ard mari'an i'li.e]; born 29 June 1986), better known by his stage name Edward Maya, is a Romanian DJ and musician.

Career

In and around 2006, Maya worked with many other Romanian artists such as Akcent and Vika Jigulina. He also worked on the song Tornerò, which was performed by Mihai Tr?istariu in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006. He added in an interview on Beat-Town.com that this song "was the beginning of my career"[2]

In the summer of 2009, Maya launched his first song as an artist, "Stereo Love", reaching No. 2 in the Romanian singles charts. Later that year, "Stereo Love" became an international hit in clubs.[3] While this success was followed by concerts worldwide, the song entered the top-5 singles charts in Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.[4][5][6][7] "Stereo Love" has received over 320 million YouTube views since August 2009.[8]

On 13 May 2011, Maya released his second single "This Is My Life". To help maintain control of his career and provide opportunities for other artists, Maya has formed his own record label, Mayavin Records.[9]

Maya released the song and video for his third single "Desert Rain" on Christmas night worldwide.[10] In an interview Edward Maya talked about his Desert Rain tour he mentions he'll start off with India and later he will be touring Europe, US, South Africa and Pakistan.[11] His fourth single 'Mono in Love' was released on 29 November 2012 also featuring Vika Jigulina.

He graduated from George Enescu Music High School in Bucharest and is currently a final year student at the Bucharest Conservatory.
