"Marie Spaemann’s first EP Mela - The Moony Sessions offers a promising foretaste of a debut album from a musician whose beguiling artistry combines influences of soul and jazz with just a touch of classical." - Dagmar Golle, Bavarian Radio
The musical journey of cellist and singer/songwriter Marie Spaemann is shaped by an active and varied concert schedule as well as a fascination and curiosity for the diversity of the creative process and contemplative approaches to music making.
As a cellist Marie Spaemann won the international Johannes Brahms Competition in Pörtschach (A). A few years later she toured Germany and Austria as solo opening act and singer with the electro-swing pioneer [dunkelbunt].
Marie Spaemann has played as a soloist with a variety of orchestras (North German Philharmonic Orchestra, the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra, the Croatian Chamber Orchestra a.o.) and is regularly invited to perform at a wide range of international festivals and venues such as the “Alpen Arte” and “More Ohr Less” festival in Austria, the “Podium-” and “Fusion-Festival” in Germany, “Puplinge Classique” in France, the “Dubrovnik Summer Festival” in Croatia, the South Korean festival “Classic Garden” and the “Konzerthaus International” in New York City.
In her duo formation with Christian Bakanic (accordion) she will be playing and singing in the Berio Hall of the Vienna Konzerthaus in autumn this year, shortly before performing a solo set of her new songs at the Amsterdam Cello Biennale 2018.
