“Don’t Breathe” is Maahikeee’s debut project as a song writer. “Don’t Breathe” evolved from a song idea to a movement. It was the catalyst to want to share a story through music, and after a successful KickStarter campaign, it has now transformed into a benefit concert that will showcase Maahikeee’s talented friends, and collect donations for The Open Shelter.

Explore the different genres. Hear the different stories.
