BIO:

Catya Maré (pronunciation: catya maree) has been playing the violin all her life (first concert as a soloist with an orchestra at the early age of 10 years old, teachers e.g. Zakhar Bron), playing solo concerts as a classical violinist in the USA, Israel, Germany, Scandinavia, Italy and Spain.
She received her master´s degree at the Music Conservatory in Munich (Germany), held the position of an alternating concertmaster with one of Europe´s finest symphony orchestras (Aarhus Symfoniorkester, DK).... and then found out that there were other, more exciting options, this wasn´t enough....

One day, in 2004, when recovering from a bad influenza and starting to play the violin again, she became aware of the fact, that she was playing something she never had heard or seen before. Music arising from the moment! A quite unusual thing for a classical musician!
Her new musical style, polyphonic solo violin improvisations, called "Essential Impro", both received rave reviews in the European press and opened the doors to solo performances at some of the most prestigious cultural institutions. Such as Museums of Modern Art, (e.g. National Galerie Berlin (Germany) and Kunsthaus Zürich (Switzerland)), international concert halls (e.g. Musikhalle Hamburg (Germany), and cathedrals. In addition Catya occasionally collaborated with painters and modern dancers.

In February 2006 Catya Maré started to compose songs, where her violin is the sensual, delightful and touching primary voice. Electronica / Celtic new age / classical crossover. A collaboration with Jakob Gadegaard Frandsen (engineer) and Henrik Koitzsch (guitar player).
Fantastic responses immediately! Her songs have been broadcast at hundreds of international radio stations, are receiving the most amazing reviews and are placed on TV shows and Hollywood films....
In April 2007 Catya Maré won the Sonic Bids Award for Composition, what resulted in a non-exclusive publishing deal with the US music publisher Noteborn Music.
And in September her song "It Came True" was featured in the Hollywood film director Vic Alexander´s film "BUTTERFLIES IN THE WIND" at the Ava Gardner Film Festival in North Carolina.

Catya released five albums through the last three years, that both are garnering fabulous reviews and continue to delight her fans from all over the globe.

In February 2008 she relocated to Los Angeles.

November 2008: Catya Maré was nominated for the prestigious Hollywood Music Award.

February 20th, 2009: Catya won the Billboard World Songwriting Contest in the category "electronica/soundtrack".

April 2009: Her music is featured on the short film "Homecoming". The film was shown at all the major film festivals in the USA.

November 19th: Catya Maré won the Hollywood Music in Media Award in the category "Ambient / New Age". The award show took place in the world famous Kodak Theater Complex, Hollywood, on November 19th., 2009 and was televised in 18 countries, including the UK.

May 2010, The Recording Academy officially appointed Catya Maré Voting Member for the Grammys 2011.

A while ago Catya started to include her voice into her musical work, what resulted in a flirtingly humorous, sexy & slightly wacky new style (electronica / pop / world). A change from new age / classical crossover to nutty electronica....

Her new album "Tell Me Why..." was released worldwide on September 8th, 2010, and shortly afterwards her funky and sexy, humorous and self deprecating EP, titled "Talk Talk Talk".

In October, 2010, she received her Green Card, based on her achievements.

In December 2010, she won the USA Songwriting Competition (category: instrumental).

August 2011, Catya Maré´s flirtingly humorous, self deprecating and slightly wacky music video "Tell Me Why" was nominated for the Stay Tuned TV Award / International Television Festival 2011. The awards gala took place on August 12th in Hollywood´s glamorous Renaissance Hotel....

October, 2012, Catya Maré was nominated for the prestigious Hollywood Music in Media Award, once again! This time in the "classical" category for her song "Leaving".
The awards gala took place on November 15th. in Hollywood´s Fonda Theater.

Catya took a creative break, but is about to resume her musical work again now, August 2013. STAY TUNED:)

Some Reviews:

From the first minute of "Destination Love" you realize this album is going to be a magical experience. Catya Mare blends modern electronica with classic violin. The music alternates between being exciting and calming. While listening you will experience exquisite emotions. I found some of the music to be playfully creative. Then there are some songs that are seductively sensual with breathy whispers. As the music seeps into your soul you may notice the pleasant sensation of happiness emerging. This is like love radiating from your soul. I think this happens because Catya Mare is one with the violin and it becomes like an extension of her own heart. Each piece of music has elements that make it unique and intriguing. You will be fascinated by not only the creativity, but how the music affects you as a soul.

"Listening to Catya is like a breath of fresh air. Entering her world is dangerously infectious and may cause you to experience spurts of ecstasy. Her vision is beyond the confines of our limited comprehension. In three words, she commands attention."

"Light Longing is an ethereal journey into the beauty of progressive classical music. For anyone who thinks violins are boring, this album will prove you wrong. It leaves you mesmerized by the peace and serenity an excellent violinist can give. The melodic pop feel of the album only adds to its appeal for the modern music listener. Ambient beats support the heavenly sound of her violin that can do nothing but refresh your spirit and mind. Highly recommended after a long day of work when you need to relax and replenish yourself.
Catya Mare is truly a talented artist, a rare gem in the mainstream pop world today. A beautiful treat to the ears that will take you to places you’d never thought existed, and from which you’ll never want to come back."

Catya Maré was a featured soloist in Europe by the age of 10. So it came as quite a surprise to this classical trained prodigy when she found herself creating improvisational music after a long bout with the flu. The creative freedom she found so unexpectedly led her to a whole new career and a style of playing that some may find reminiscent of early Kitaro. Her compositions are soaring and ethereal, as one listener noted, "light given voice". She blends the sound of her violin seamlessly with the synthesized keyboards and incorporates delicate percussion and effects nicely. On this album (which was retitled and repackaged when she signed with Spectra), all nine pieces are quite rich in melody and emotion. I especially like "Spring".
This is an exceptionally nice album.
