Mysterious dreams, special characters, fascinating places – there is no end for profound resources to inspire a remarkable and unique band name.
Well in this uplifting case two best friends were eating some terrible burgers in a low-key ghosted fast food restaurant at 2 AM and accidentally found a phone application which generates invented band names.„Foyl aka” popped up, and bam, the baby was born.
"Neo soul meets jazz"
All songs of FOYL AKA are written by hungarian vocalist Maja Mágedli and estonian piano player Mathei Florea, the two have been lucky enough to discover that they inspire and perfectly complement each other's musical approach in composing and arranging which clearly reflects in their repertoire too.
The band furthermore consists Arno Grussendorf on guitar, Conrad Steinhoff on electric bass and David Guy on drums. Foyl Aka first met at the renowned Jazz Institute Berlin (UdK) and they have quickly realized how smooth, natural and thrilling it feels to create a soft yet grooving sound together. These compositions are influenced by mostly neo soul in a jazz context; though the group does not intend to limit its genres and is excited to build an own little world without clear musical boundaries.
