Aline Mayne was born in Brussels, Belgium, lived in Paris and New York and is now based in Los Angeles, California. She started her music carrier as singer, songwriter and guitar and keys player for several rock bands in Belgium. At that time she wrote and recorded her rock EP “Utopia” in which she sings and plays guitar.
As a solo artist, she wrote and recorded several EP's and singles, including "Superfreak" which is a song about self-acceptance, putting the word "freak" back to its initial meaning: unusual, unexpected, abnormal, atypical, exceptional. By saying "I'm a Superfreak", our uniqueness becomes our Superpower! Superfreak is a soothing ballad ending with a full sing-along chorus inspired by "Hey Jude" by The Beatles. The instrumentation includes Wurlitzer, acoustic guitar, electric bass, Mellotron and electronic sounds. It was produced by Grammy Awards winning producer Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Coldplay, Janelle Monae, Kelly Clarkson). Scott said that "Aline is a fearless, real artist who has just the right amount of pop". The music video includes people of various shapes, sizes and appearances: Terra Jolé, Peggy Chenoweth, Johnny Nobody, Lady Clover Honey, Mem Nahadr, Sebastian Saraceno, Janie Martinez, Brixey, and others. Denise Sherod, of Reignland Magazine says: "The diversity in the music video is going to empower so many!" Watch the video with interviews of the cast and director.
Aline's EP "Nothing to lose" contains 5 songs: “Break your heart” and "Suicide Love”, produced by Lee Groves (Janet Jackson, Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Marilyn Manson, The Black Eyed Peas, Gwen Stefani); “Nothing To Lose” and “spoil Me”, produced by Tomek Miernowski; and “Bubble Gum dream”, produced by D-Sharp. Come Here Floyd blog said: "From her mini-album ‘Nothing to Lose’, the ultra catchy synchronicity of ‘Bubble Gum Dream’ whets your appetite and then some. Her imagination for notions of the past, present and future, dilute-none, as her inflections of substance and heroic resolution, really bring out highlights for entertainment and energy. ‘Bubble Gum Dream’ is tact, with absolute fun."
Aline's song "Princess Boy" is "Fun, energetic and featuring a loud-and-proud message of self love", according to He Said Magazine. It was produced by Brian DeNeeve (The Wanted) and the EP has remixes by Amanda Lepore, Jodie Harsh and Honey Dijon. Check out the music video.
