About Maria Neckam

Born in Vienna, Maria grew up surrounded by the constant presence of the city's music and rhythms. Immersed in the rich musical traditions around her she developed a deep passion for all kinds of music and sound - from opera to pop, from stage musicals to rock and punk, from church music to jazz. She absorbed herself in the piano, guitar and electric bass, composed songs, set up a diverse range of bands, and performed in a city choir. As a teenager she performed and recorded regularly with the rock-band Sounds of Silence and as a singer-songwriter. This early and long chain of experiences guided her heart to follow the unpredictable and exciting life of a musician. In 2000, she was drawn to Amsterdam to study jazz singing. Here she met musicians from all over the world and embraced a wide range of musical traditions, resulting in projects characterized by their extensive and hybrid range of styles: from standard jazz to contemporary classical music, from free improvisation to Drum 'N Bass, from pop to Indian music. After she graduated at the Conservatory of Amsterdam in 2004, she decided that it was time for a change. She got accepted into the Master’s program of the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, where she studied since September 2005 with Luciana Souza, Peter Eldridge and Indian tabla player Samir Chatterjee and graduated in May 2007. To date, she has developed and refined her very own style of singing and composing music that runs like a bright and vivid thread through her different bands and projects.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
