Big Mike and the Booty Papas

The amazing Blues singer Big Mike is coming from June-August and I am doing the bookings for his gigs in the Netherlands and in Germany. I will sing with him as many gigs as I can, because it's always a great musical experience. You can find the dates underneath Agenda. Check it out: www.bootypapa.com

I'm very proud to present our new album "Funk don't move". We've worked with a great team. I've produced, written and sang a big part of the album together with Jamal Thomas, Alex Bernath and Coen Molenaar.

Biography

That the talented singer-songwriter Maya Lisa is blessed with a gift, shows by the fact that she has worked with some of the best musicians in the business. She is lead vocalist, writer and dancer in the group of award winning funk drummer Jamal Thomas (Maceo Parker, the S.O.S.Band). Lisa has written the lyrics for the theater tour Mr. Richard Parker by avant-garde jazz master fluteplayer Chris Hinze (oct.2017-dec.2017). 

Music is second nature for Maya. As a young girl she studied music theory and violin. Maya began an intense concentration on singing at the age of 12 and in 2004 she began studying classical singing and graduated from the acclaimed CODARTS conservatory in Rotterdam. From 2014-2015 Maya studied the experimental theatre master: This Is Music Theatre Education on the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.

Though classically trained, Maya has always had a fascination for R&B and soul music. Her solo debut (set for release end of 2018) will be imbued with these influences. A production which shows Maya’s passion for singing and her capacity to connect the listener with her heart. She likes to be an example for those who want to transform their dreams into reality. An ambition she also expresses in her socially engaged songs.


Jamal Thomas is clear about Lisa’s future: “Maya is extremely talented. I have worked with many great singers and she becomes one of them. Calm, explosive and always well prepared. She is loaded with knowledge, creative at the drop of a hat and a great songwriter. I enjoy working with her. Look out for Maya Lisa, this beautiful voice of the future.”

After Rotterdam, Köln is the city where I feel most home. Every day I discover new areas. Köln Ehrenfeld is the one where I am the most often. Thanks @laurence_chataigne_photography who caught me walking there and made this cool shot.
