MAGEIA is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Liza Kay and was founded in 2019. The music can best be described as female-fronted progressive rock with a blend of different styles & influences ranging from folk to neo-classical to oriental.
After receiving a Fender Strat in her teens, Liza developed a great interest in artists and bands like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. Later on she switched to bass and studied double bass with a teacher in Germany. At the same time she started to write original music and formed her own band. When the band broke up, she got in touch with Milan Polak and they began to work on her new album, ‘MAGEIA’.
"There has always been this voice inside of me telling me you can accomplish anything with the tip of a sword and a good amount of willpower."
With this motto, Liza has been able to fight her way through all obstacles so far and it was her heart's desire to carry this out into the world and inspire others with it.
On October 23, 2020, the band debuted with the self-titled 7-song album which has won the label LION MUSIC for collaboration in a very short time. MAGEIA could even leave its bluesy traces in the biggest Japanese music magazine BURRN!, in the December 2020 print issue of rock and metal magazine Powerplay, in radio stations in the UK and USA, as well as in Latin America on Youtube Channels and Music Blogger pages.
As an Austrian artist, Liza has already been able to gather several international top musicians like Jeff Neal from the band 'Boston', Dennis Leeflang, Kyle Hughes (Bumblefoot, Marco Mendoza), Lars Eric Mattsson and Milan Polak (Falco, Thomas Lang, Kip Winger and many more) on her debut album, which truly gives the music a unique touch.
