Monika Heidemann

“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. Her off-beat humor and smart, avant-garde arrangements, though not at all esoteric, betray her background as an intuitive musician, well-balanced between the technical and the spontaneous. These virtues, key to every great musician, are equally true of her vocal approach. Monika Heidemann’s warm, dark, voice and fluid phrasing, envelop strong melodies and remarkable musical vocabularies. With an equally captivating band of brilliant musicians and improvisors, this music leaves one simultaneously entranced with mystery and revelation, joy and sadness. It is this dance with contradiction that makes the dreamlike poetry of her songs resonate for all who hear them.
