Maya Janeska is the General Manager of UNFD – one of Australia’s leading heavy music brands – focusing on releasing and developing Rock, Metal, Punk and Hardcore music from around the world. She’s also one of the only woman to be the head of a record label in Australia. She’s got a ton of industry experience, is an extremely smart music business woman, and as she told me prior to our conversation, she practices Krav Maga so you wouldn’t want to mess with her!
