MAJA SAVIC was born in Zadar, Croatia. At the age of 7, she convinces her parents that she wants to learn how to play the piano and ends up in Music School “Pavao Markovac” in Zagreb, where she studies the piano until 1992. She starts composing and arranging and occasionally singing in public.
She started performing as a lead female vocalist along with a male vocalist and a rhythm section with a pop/rock band called Flyer in 1998, doing all sorts of covers. After that band she finds herself in one original band named Bazaar dealing with a harder style, mixing hard core and jazzy sounds, where she wrote her own lyrics and vocals. They release a demo Broken pieces and get pretty good reviews.
She stops with music for a few years in order to finish her studies at the Faculty of Philosophy in English and Polish Language and Literature. After the break she reunites with the band Flyer, this time as a back-vocalist (of the two) singing now more mellow tunes from covers to originals, from funky and disco to soul...This leads to a record deal with Croatia Records and the first album of the group called Epopeja. Performing from small stages to big stage events, she gains more experience in performing.
In 2005 she leaves the band and moves to Portugal, where she starts working on her debut album with a prominent jazz musician Zé Eduardo. Apart from recording, she starts working intensively in jazz, educating herself as a vocalist and a musician, and performing with various bands. She works in smaller groups performing jazz standards, Bossa nova tunes, latin and blues, as well as early jazz, New Orleans repertoire with one big band and two more vocalists.
