Mini artist photoshoot at St Pancras International station

Today I was playing my songs to travelers at St Pancras International station ๐Ÿ™‚ on one of the station resident pianos! ๐Ÿ™‚ This year I was invited by photographer James Hall to help coordinating a series of portraits of Polish artists living in UK. … And also be a subject of one of them :). I would love my songs to be enjoyed by people from all over the world so what better place to place me playing them then at one of the biggest train stations on the planet with multitude of people from various walks of life? It was quite scary, my fingers were shaking but thankfully one smiling lady, a traveler from USA, came up to us & started filming us & encouraging me to play more :). After we finished, we took part in the national minute of silence rememberingย those who lost their lives on 7/7/2005 in London tube terrorist attacks.ย I now have a task of choosing the most favorite picture (not easy!:) before the series is finished & we can hopefully organise an exhibition honoring the work of all incredible people who agreed to be involved in the project. Stay tuned ๐Ÿ™‚ Unedited shots below. ย All photographs –ย ยฉJames Hall at...

Surprising fan mail about my music :)

Isn’t it lovely when we get lovely kind words from lovely strangers when we least expect it? I am a very lucky girl – I received two super kind emails / posts about my songs totally unexpectedly ๐Ÿ™‚ You can read the lovely blog post about the little me here: http://oceanicblueuk.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/jazz-singersongwriter-extraordinaire.html And just before that, someone tweeted to me: “Just caught your #music on #SoundCloud and that is some of the best I have listened to in a while. What a great voice..!” – oh bless ๐Ÿ™‚ I am all red faced now, big and very kind words ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope your new week started equally well ๐Ÿ™‚ With hugs – Maja...

Acting & meetings with fellow creative souls :)

Acting was my first stage love, and it is still very dear to my heart ๐Ÿ™‚ Music came later and my songs are my dearest ‘ babies’ but I still love working as an actress on various creative projects. Last night I was honoured to take part in an amazing acting workshop with a Casting Director Lucy Rands. Unfortunately I could only learn my lines for the scene I was selected for on the train to the very workshop, but thanks to having good memory, I managed to memorize all in just under an hour & perform the material with another actress. ย It was incredible to be told afterwards, by several of the fellow actors who took part in the workshop, that according to them, I was “one of the best & I delivered the scene very well”. I was nearly sure that due to lack of time and preparation I would simply… run away & not show up, but I am very happy to report that hard work & courage paid off! The scene was difficult and challenging (I hated my character a bit! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) ย but I tried my best & was truly delighted & humbled by comments I received. And it looks like I will work on an incredible project soon with one of new friends I met!   If you would like to see me act, have a look at my showreel below ๐Ÿ™‚ Fingers crossed for more work very soon!
