Maria Faust has received the prestigious and annually awarded “Hæderspris” from DJBFA, the Danish Composers’ and Songwriters’ Association. The prize was presented on September 18th, 2019 to a sold-out crowd at Hotel Cecil in Copenhagen. The winners remain anonymous to the public until the ceremony each year, and Maria received the award (which included a cash prize, statuette, and a live presentation/interpretation of her own music arranged and performed by a specially selected group of musicians) with this introduction by DJBFA Board Member and presenter

Anna Lidell: “Maria Faust is an artist – and magician. As a composer and saxophonist, she practices the rare art of wordlessly conveying emotions and stories. She fights and hungers for testing new boundaries, and cross-pollinates impressions and genres to end up with her own unique expression.”

Dear friends! Here is the teaser for my upcoming album called FARM FRESH with Tim Dahl and Weasel Walter. Album out 19.04.2019
