“Possessed of a very fine voice and an original style, I consider Monika one of the most promising and talented young musicians that I know.” -Steve Lacy, jazz saxophone

Called by jazz vocalist Dominique Eade “an unusual talent who makes alluring music that is both heartfelt and remarkably hip”, Monika Heidemann twists together jazz sensibility, improvisation, catchy pop melodies, the grind of rock n’ roll and enough subconscious creativity to still question where this music could have come from.

Reaching above and beyond the standard, these modern day art-songs are truly a breath of fresh air in the current music scene.

With an equally captivating band of brilliant musicians and improvisors, this music leaves one simultaneously entranced with mystery and revelation, joy and sadness.
