Austrian born and Bristol-based Jazz vocalist, pianist and songwriter Lil Maxine gives rise to an unmistakable sound of her own. Mellow, soulful, and yet progressive, she flirts with balladic-epic sounds and tight grooves, and tells timeless stories of love, longing and hope. Her debut album ‘A Little Girl’s Lovesongs’ (2016) established her as a “highly regarded vocalist and songwriter” (Jazzpodium Magazin). With her most recent body of work she expands her world of Jazz-infused songs and brings us a collection of fractured and elegantly crafted compositions.
“Lil Maxine is pushing the barriers and presents a subtle mix of Contemporary Jazz and Pop. Hints of fusion, funk, soul and of course jazz are all evident. Lise’s voice too is superb and she sings with emotion and it is her voice not a sound like, all of which makes her material very original, saleable and definitely listenable. There is not one song in this trio of songs which is not able to stand alone such is their quality and we should all be looking out for Lil Maxine in 2023.” Brian Inglis, Jelly Records

“Music that is seductive, expressive, always pared-down, yet rich in ‘song-ful’ details.” Jazzthing
