Second studio album consisting of 10 original compositions by the bassist and the band leader Mai Agan. Her music is very confessional and fragile under the surface of strong melodies, beautifully crooked harmonies and hip grooves.
Mai was born and raised in Kuressaare, on an island Saaremaa, Estonia. She played the violin for 8 years and first touched the bass at the age of 16. It was a moment of recognition. Estonian “Jazz King” Tiit Paulus became her new teacher in 2004 and they played together in a band 2+2=5. Agan started playing with the great masters in an early age since Tiit Paulus often invited his friends to play with 2+2=5 (Ain Agan, Lembit Saarsalu, Jaak Sooäär etc). 2007-2010 she continued her studies in Georg Ots Tallinn Music School where Raul Vaigla became her teacher. He had been Mai’s favorite musician for years (he still is!) so these years with Mr. Vaigla were extremely inspiring. He has stayed by her side as a good friend and a supporter. 2010-2011 she studied at Skurups Folkhögskola, 2011-2014 The Royal College of Music in Stockholm and right now is continuing her studies at the master program, under the supervision of local bass gurus Jan Adefelt, Micke Berglund and finally Palle Danielsson, perhaps most notable for his work done with Keith Jarrett from 1974-1979, becoming a member of his European quartet for that period.
In April 2010 Mai Agan won the best instrumentalist prize on Uno Naissoo Compostions Contest.
