Music of passion
This voice puts you in the mood for dreaming.
This sound lets you melt away longingly.
The highly gifted Singer, Pianist and Songwriter Svenja Schmidt captures her audience immediately with her soul and her charismatic aura.
She really „absorbed the groove with the mother´s milk“ right from the beginning, because she comes from a family of musicians.

She also has acquired her experiences by joining different Funk,Jazz/Soul and studio projects as a singer and keyboarder.
Whether with her warm, smoky and soulful voice or in combination with her musicianship, playing the piano or optionally the beloved Fender Rhodes in her own style - Svenja, who is also YAMAHA endorser, has built up a reputation with a lot of solo and band gigs.
Her sound and her music are significantly charcacterized by funky grooves and her charismatic voice between Soul, Jazz and Pop, inspired by here idols Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn,Jamiroquai and Incognito and Alicia Keys, to name a few..
