Winner of two Gold Medals for Best Emerging Artist and Best Song (June 2015)at the Global Music Awards (GMA), and Nominee for Rock Song of the Year 2015 and 2016 by the International Music and Entertainment Awards Association (IMEA), The Majolly Project’s debut single “Dark Room” put the band in the spotlight barely one and a half months since its release.

Comprising two passionate musicians, The Majolly Project (TMP) frontswoman/songwriter/arranger Neecia Majolly. Neecia Majolly, acclaimed as one of India’s finest pianists is also a conductor, singer, teacher and composer, who has emerged as one of the most dynamic musical forces in India. She has performed at venues across India, South East Asia, Sweden and Australia. She has had her musical education in Brunei and Singapore and went on to do her degree in Music from the Western Australian Conservatorium, Perth. An accomplished Director of two choirs that she founded, Neecia Majolly also has the distinction of releasing the first ever Western Classical Music album in the country in 2009 ‘the renaissance begins’. She is believed to be the first Indian Western Classical Pianist to have a piano album released by Universal Audio, USA. It is this unusual combination of these distinct influences of music that creates the unique sound concept of The Majolly Project. Currently, the Band is working on their First Album. Its songs are unpredictable yet invoke strong personal reactions connected to each individual reality.
After a successful June run, ‘Whitebone’ — a music video made by city-based Neecia Majolly — will continue to enchant fans in July too. The video, which won a daily play distinction on MTV Indies for the whole of June, will continue to be played this month because of its popularity, the channel has said.
“Bengaluru knows Neecia Majolly as a reputed concert pianist, Western classical and music theatre vocalist, conductor, teacher and composer. Until recently, however, not many knew that Neecia also dabbled in progressive rock and classical electronic music with her band, The Majolly Project.”
It isn’t everyday that musicians get to name a genre after their music. But when this unique opportunity does arise, it’s only right to grab it with both hands and embrace it with fondness.
