Early life[edit]

Maya Anne Ford, was born on January 8, 1979 in Oakland, California, on the same day as her fellow band member Torry Castellano. She met future bandmates Tory Castellano, Brett Anderson and Allison Robertson in junior high school.[3] They formed a band in 8th grade called Ragady Anne, later calling themselves The Electrocutes at Palo Alto High School.[4] Ford started to play the bass guitar at age 13. Initially she was playing guitar (she received an acoustic guitar from her cousin), but then she decided to switch to the bass, because she could not handle the chords.[5] When her band (then known as Screen) started in May 1993, she had had approximately six months of playing experience.
