Lil Maxine
A Little Girl's Lovesongs


Question 4 out of 12
A LITTLE GIRL’S LOVESONGS IS SLIGHTLY MISLEADING AS AN ALBUM TITLE, SINCE THE SONGS DON’T EXACTLY DEAL WITH CHILDISH THEMES AND MANY DON’T SEEM TO BE ABOUT LOVE. WHAT’S THE THINKING BEHIND THIS?
In very confusing and disoriented times, these songs were my point of reference, something I could hold on to. I was allowed to leave them, but they never left me. I could always return to them and they were never mad at me. They gave me time but, time and again, they also called me back. They told me they believed in me. I was permitted to call on them whenever I wanted and as often as I wanted and that felt secure. They were never malicious because they never judged me. They persuaded me to dream and to question. They let me be and allowed me to recognise and comprehend ever more. They led me back to myself. It’s probably true: we determine our lives by the things we love.

Question 6 out of 12
6 WHAT DOES THE LINE "I WISH I COULD SAY I WAS CLEAN" MEAN?
It's a line from the track Say Goodbye, which, among other things, is about definitive goodbyes. Accepting the finality of that, wich is, and the fact that it's often not that, which could or should have been.

press & booking
„An interesting newcomer among Austria’s Jazz vocalists.“
Andreas Felber, Ö1 Jazztime live, April 2016

"Music that is seductive, expressive, always pared-down, yet rich in 'song-ful' details."
Jazzthing REVIEW PLUS, Olaf Maikopf, June 2016

"This ‘little Maxine’ has the volume, vocal scale and grandeur that many ‘great’ singers lack."
Jazzpodium, Rainer Bratfisch, June 2016

"A pleasantly restrained record that convinces with knowing, subtly fractured, elegantly crafted compositions."
Hifi Stars, WV, June 2016

"A voice that is at times reminiscent of Kate Bush in her middle-range and at other times of none other than Lil Maxine herself."
Westzeit, Karsten Zimalla, May 2016

"The band abandons itself to the sort of communal levitation one would not expect from such a freshly formed combo."
Westzeit, Karsten Zimalla, May 2016

"Stylistically, Lil Maxine attributes the notions of ‘heart beat and soul’ to her music, a mixture she pulls off well. This is meticulously structured, superbly performed and improvisation-enriched modern jazz that captivates the ear. It doesn’t just beat familiar stereotypes, but is also suffused with a clever, narrative tranquility."
Kulturnews Platten, jn, May 2016

"“If there ever was a torch song in its pure form, this is it."
Victoriah Szirmai, April 2016

"Multifaceted and in no way little-girlish."
Helmut Blecher, plattenladentipps.de, April 2016

"A trio of bass, drums and a singing pianist. Lil Maxine is her name and we are bound to hear more of her."
Ohrenschmauch, Na dann...Münster, April 2016

"A collection of captivating songs of a refined sound."
Michael Ternai, MICA, March 2016
