Her debut single, "Roulette", was released in 2019, with a follow-up vocal feature on Karate Kactus' "Wildfire." In November of 2020, Maura released the pop anthem, "I Don't Need You," produced by Juno-winner Corey Lerue.
August 2021 brought us Maura's new single "The Difference," also produced by Lerue. “The Difference” describes the journey of discovering your self-worth and the feeling of being in a relationship with someone who truly loves you for you. This song emphasizes the idea that being vulnerable with someone new can completely change your perspective of what you deserve and allows you to realize that you are enough,” Whitman says of her new single.
