Maya Solovey Kicks Off 2011 With European Tour And MIDEM 2011

Singer/songwriter Maya Solovey ended 2010 in the best way possible - taking New York City by storm with performances at multiple venues, including the Trump Apartments in Manhattan. Maya isn't slowing down in 2011, opening the year at Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn on January 7th, before embarking on a short European tour. Starting in Geneva, Maya will be traveling to Lisbon (Portugal), Zaragoza (Spain) and Cannes for MIDEM 2011.

Maya will be attending the MIDEM Conference in Cannes, France on January 22-26 to meet with European labels and publishers regarding her self-titled album, as well as booking and other business opportunities. Maya will be joined by co-producer "Bassy" Bob Brockman, a grammy award winning producer and mixer, whose production and mixes have been nominated for over 20 Grammys. MIDEM (Marche International du Disque et de l'Edition Musicale) has been held annually in France since 1967 with the aim to provide a forum for business talks, political and legal issues to do with the music industry, showcasing new artists and discussing musical trends and music-related products.

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."
