First Solo Album - Solo stands for Solo Violin on an album where Powerful Voices tell Moving Stories in Beautiful Songs
She studied classically - violin. Then came the first folk band, it was obvious with the instrument. However, she has always been drawn to songwriters with incisive voices. With them she toured through the clubs and pubs of Meck-Pomm and Berlin and climbed theater stages, a highlight - the Scotland tour sponsored by the Goethe Institute. Later, the harder pace in rock bands changed Maike's violin style. Acoustic violin sounds were joined by distorters, octavers, tremolo and delay. She then took them to the big festival stages as support for Status Quo, Uriah Heep, Nik Kershaw or together with musicians like Mike Keneally and Scott Carter Thunes at the Zappanale in Bad Doberan. The encounter and interaction with "City" violinist Joro Gogow was also formative.
After Maike has been involved in numerous album productions by her fellow singers, she now presents her debut solo album "Something New" with a mix of her own songs and those of fellow bands and songwriters, stylistically very diverse in sound and genre. Maike's solo violin (or viola) is the common thread that runs through this album. The songs were created over a period of 2 years and were recorded with more than 30 musicians in different studios. 11 singers, including the Timezone colleagues Silvana Mehnert and Karl Neukauf, shine in English and German. Longing for love, online and other dependencies, political and social issues of our time are taken up and presented in a tangible, touching, lyrical, affectionate, sometimes sharp-tongued ironic manner - in complex arrangements in folk rock, rock pop, classical and finally electronic style .
