Maya Solovey Makes Her LIC Bar Debut On December 20th

The holidays are no time for rest, especially if you're an international artist, a singer/songwriter and a chef to boot. Maya Solovey will be taking the city of New York by storm during December with four performances, which will be a combination of public and private shows. On December 15th and 21st, Solovey will perform at the Trump Apartments in Manhattan. She then performs at the LIC Bar (45-58 Vernon Blvd, Long Island City, NY) on December 20th at 9:00 p.m. And on December 29th, Solovey will, in collaboration with Chef Mark Fahrer, present one of her culinary concerts in which the menu enhances the musical performance.

Commenting on her busy schedule, Solovey said, "There's nothing I'd rather be doing during the Christmas holidays that sharing the things I love most with people – music and food. The variety in the types of performances and the different venues make it even more exciting."

Maya's Culinary Concerts brings her award-winning music and culinary skills into the comfortable setting of your home. The combination of her multi-lingual music with seasonally organic and sustainably raised ingredients makes Maya's Culinary Concerts a truly 'sensational' experience — one that inevitably brings listeners closer to the music and artist.

As an international artist and a trilingual songwriter, Maya Solovey has merged the acoustic/folk songwriting tradition into the territories of pop, bossa nova, and even the high drama of cinematic scoring. Her music is a surprising, yet rational marriage between many cultures as she sings in Portuguese, Spanish and her native English tongue. Her new self-titled album, Maya Solovey, released July 15th, has already gathered notice from journalists and music critics. Her song "Eu Vi" was featured in a Ralph Lauren runway video for winter fashion week, while her song "Como Yo Lloro Por Ti" will be featured on a in a FIFA World Cup compilation, and another 3 songs will be featured in an upcoming shark documentary called "Shark Allies". Tom Moon, on air critic for NPR, and journalist for Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine said, "Here's a rarity: An original voice who really is original! Drawing inspiration from all over the map, Maya Solovey has developed a deep, enchanting sound that's unlike anything else out there right now."
