"You can hear classic artists such as Fiona Apple and Liz Phair as an influence through Maria’s voice... aiming towards the future with a sense of relief, this songwriter deserves to be number one globally." - Born Music

"...a unique, progressive voice in the pop world." - Atwood Magazine

"Brooklyn-based frontwoman cracks out the killer riffs for this bold and energetic pop-rock stomper." - Mystic Sons

"Upon hitting a necessary reset on her entire existence, indie-rock goddess Maria Neckam realizes the dark, swirling clouds that once encircled her body have finally lifted, and she steps into the bright light of renewal far more self-possessed and resilient." - B-Sides & Badlands

"...deftly deconstructs and rearranges elements of synth-pop, jazz, indie rock and folk into a perfectly cohesive and hypnotic whir of tone and melody." - The Southern Sounding

"Maria Neckam really has gifted us a slice of herself as she explores the world around her and continues to evolve as a person and a songwriter." - Everything Is Noise

"Maria brings a whole new approach of songwriting to the table with this release coming after some serious soul searching..." - Everything Is Noise

This stems from her growth as a musician and artist during her move to New York. Her goal with her music is to empower those who experience similar situations and emotions.”

Leftbank Magazine premiers new single Familiar:

“Austrian-born, Dutch-educated, and Brooklyn-based jazz composer-turned-indie-pop soul crooner  Maria Neckam  is one of my favorite finds of recent memory. Equal parts bold and ethereal, she blends her classical training in jazz voice and composition with a fresh sensibility similar to singer-songwriters like Regina Spektor.”  Read the full article  HERE
