Windows allow us a personal view and windows also make curious. Even if we do not necessarily want to immediately admit it, it comes before that we are interested in what's going on behind many windows on the screen.
Monika Martin gave their latest CD called "Behind each window". The title song tells a story. A heart wanders through memories. Melancholy. Nostalgia. Lost love. As in most of her songs infected again much personal singer-songwriter therein. So the sung song in the window can be seen as a metaphor, as a starting and ending point of this longing. "Behind every window I seek your face, but more than a few shadows I do not see. Behind each window a dream geborn and as long as I examined, I did not verlorn you ". There is so much wishful thinking and hope in these lines, as it may well be vocally rübergebracht so only by the singer from Graz. It is the voice, the phrasing, the passion that is in it and all that it that finally the window opens, which allows a glimpse into the soul of the artist. Together
"My lips," says Monika Martin, "you are my soul window" - and who has seen and heard in a live performance, when she sings with her eyes closed, her voice gently to new heights floating leaves, can well understand her saying.
Monika Martin has opened another window in their now ongoing since 1996 career. She has set the next step in the artistic evolution. Never before has worked with so many different songwriters, arrangers, artists and musicians. "It was wonderful," she says, and tell you all about the contact with all these creative people. "It's a living out long-held dream to get all these new ideas to be heard. My job is to be able to my calling and to share this with other fellow musicians ... What can I say ... I have grown in the joy of doing ". In fact, it seems as if Monika Martin at yourself new facets discovered would. There is no other person, no other Monika emerged, but the personal development in the creative sectors is unmistakable.
Compared to the first ten years of her career she has now reached to another artistic level. She is constantly on the move, has played free from constraints, only themselves committed their music, the songs and primarily the audience. And this audience will feel this artistic development. Monika Martin has a very narrow and good rapport with their fans and allow her to take her on a journey through their musical development - and the fans this invitation will gladly accept.
So she pushes freed on another window and looks forward to every look in her newly refurbished home songs.
"Do you hear even Mississippi" is, so to speak, the young girls room in this house songs. The song has a story and that starts with their Confirmation. The aunt has the young girl one day paid to a turntable for Confirmation. Given a single plate: "Mississippi" - sung by the Dutch band Pussycat. The plate was in continuous operation and Monika yelped read more than she sang. The love for the song she shared more with her best friend than with her mother, because the would have liked pulled the plug after the song came constantly from the speakers. Each of us has such songs, songs that accompany us since youth, trigger memories after the first few bars of a button. "Years later, I was at an event in the König Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen and with me also Pussycat were in the program. How have sung this song, I have to see the sold-out arena, this incredible atmosphere ... I spontaneously put my phone, called the girlfriend of the time and they listen in Translator Phone. Finally, I asked her: Are you still listening Mississippi "It is a reminder of good times and honestly: Have we not all our own private"? Mississippi "?
"You still have a suitcase in Berlin" is also a story that someone is foreign rare. The tormenting of questioning as unwanted companion of love. Who is free of such feelings, the song can be hard to understand but quite honestly, who is? One of those songs, the, best recognize the artistic freedom that Monika Martin lives and loves can be, "How a poem". Great guitars, a very Previous Taken Arrangement, recording the voice focused. The song bit by bit builds, is, thank goodness of a sound avalanche far and draws precisely from the force. The situation is similar with "Maria". The interesting piano passages at the beginning of the song reveal fine structures, the Chanson closer than the classic hit.
