“Music that is seductive, expressive, always pared-down, yet rich in ‘song-ful’ details.” Jazzthing
Lise Huber aka Lil Maxine is a Jazz vocalist, pianist and songwriter based in Bristol. Together with her band she creates a sonic world of Jazz infused songs: mellow, soulful and yet progressive. Lil Maxine’s most recent releases ‘On The Other Side’, ‘Time’ and ‘Changes’ present a subtle mix of Contemporary Jazz and Pop.
“Jazz is big and growing especially amongst younger artists which is very reassuring and like many younger musicians Lil Maxine is pushing barriers and has come up with some outstanding material in these three songs. 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.”
