About Maja Keuc

Maja Keuc was born January 16th, 1992 in Maribor, Slovenia. She has been a star in her country since she brought Slovenia back into the Eurovision final in 2011 with the song “No One.” She finished 13th and peaked at #1 in the Slovenian charts.

Despite her success, she became rather discrete after the release of her album “Indigo.” However, at EMA 2014 (the Slovenian national selection for Eurovision 2014), Maja, as a guest of the show, rocked the stage when she sang her single “Close To You.”





#Music: A very good background with piano, drums (like little heartbeats), and some effects. But a little thing is missing, unlike “No One”… | 4/5

#VoiceLike always, Maja’s voice is strong and the notes are perfect. She can sing any music genre: pop, rock, soul, R’n’B… | 5/5

#LyricsThe lyrics are pretty good but, unfortunately: there is repetition. The story of a woman who is alone and who is wondering where is her ex-lover… Oh no please! | 4/5

#FutureHit?: Unfortunately, I don’t think that “Close To You” will be a hit in Europe (and surely not more worldwide). Reasons: Maja Keuc is from Slovenia, a little ex-Yugoslavian country in the east of Europe… BUT, Maja has all for herself: the beauty, the voice, the charm and her perfect English! | 3/5

#Total: Now we’re waiting for the next song from Ms. Keuc. Maybe a ballad, but I’m pretty sure that she will record a pop-rock song… Good luck Maja for your future! ♥ | = 16/20
