The native of Aarau, Switzerland comes from a musical family: her father studied at the Conservatory and passed his passion for music on to Maja and her brother. At the age of six, Maja started to take piano lessons, and she continued to do so until her adult years. Later, she also signed up for singing lessons; she then appeared as a backing vocalist in various bands, and ultimately performed as a lead singer.

Maja Remensberger has performed as a soloist and guest artist in various acts. To this day, she is inspired by the famous voices of the 80’s and 90’s – Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Natalie Cole – and the compositions of singers/pianists like Elton John and Billy Joel.

Her repertoire includes pop, soul, jazz, and gospel songs. During the past few years, she was on tour twice with a gospel band in Switzerland. In addition, the popular backing vocalist participates in many studio productions.

As a singer-songwriter, Maja Remensberger composes and writes her own songs. They always start with inspirational content: something she saw or read, something someone told her, a major life event, or an everyday occurrence. When she is emotionally moved, she sits down at the piano. There, she tries to gather her thoughts into a story, then to incorporate the story into a composition, and to pass it on in the form of music. This is how she creates subtle ballads that feature elements of jazz, pop, and soul and bring out every nuance of her expressive voice.

The debut album by Maja Remensberger is titled “Still It Goes” and includes eight of her own compositions among other songs. They were arranged by Michele Bonivento. The album was produced by Andrea Valfrè at the Magister Recording Area Studio near Venice. Marco Lincetto was responsible for mastering.
