Young actress Maya Hawke who plays Robin in Stranger Things is dipping her talented toes into the music industry, making her one of the up-and-coming young stars to look out for in 2019.
After her roles in the hit Netflix series and the movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman released two singles on Aug. 15, titled “To Love a Boy” and “Stay Open,” both which will be available in an upcoming album.
Here is a snippet from one of the first two songs I’m going to release (lyrics by me music by Jesse Harris) and preview of the cover for this A side/B side single. They will be released on August 16th and I’m playing a show to celebrate at the Sultan Room in Williamsburg on August 21st. Link for tickets is in my bio.
Raised by the Hollywood royalty, Hawke showcased her musical talents by also writing the lyrics of both songs, according to Variety.
Meanwhile, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jesse Harris, who worked with Norah Jones on her blockbuster 2002 album Come Away with Me, wrote the music.
But the young actress is not the only Stranger Things cast member to be making music.
Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington in the series, released a single titled “Roddy” in late July. Finn Wolfhard (Mike) is lead vocalist and guitarist for the rock band Calpurnia, while Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) sings and write songs for musical collective Work in Progress. (ran/mut)
