Biography[Edit]Edit

[1][2]Maywood in 1981===Start time and glory years[Edit]===

The sisters started singing at an early age with the Davies. Together they made from the early 1970s part of diverse groups, of which the first was The Karina's in 1974. In 1976 they sat in the countrygroep Colt 45, and the year after they formed the duo the The Lady POPs.

From 1979 the sisters decided to continue under the name Maywood. The English-language repertoire was written by Alice and consisted of often theatrical ballads and danceable pop songs. The production lay in the hands of ex-Kayak drummer Pim Koopman, who put his first steps in the productiepad. The second single You treated me wrong Maywoods first hit was in 1979. Despite that it is not a high listing in the charts, marked the breakthrough for the duo and also the beginning of an extremely successful period. There soon followed larger hits, of which the number Late at night in 1980 was a number one hit in both the Top 40 as the National hit parade. Except in Netherlands knew Maywood also abroad to acquire a certain popularity. There were records in 52 countries and at festivals in West Germany, Poland, Japan and Korea-there were awarded honors and awards. Also toured Sweden, Finland, Bulgaria, Maywood extended by Indonesia and the Soviet Union. In Spain and Central America with a LP appeared in Spanish translated material. By Conamus Foundation was awarded the silver Harp Maywood.

Eurovision Song Contest[Edit]Edit

In the mid-1980s took the success. Released singles sold hardly still and remained mired in the tipparade. Nevertheless, Maywood in 1990 on behalf of Netherlands sent to the Eurovision Song Contest in Zagreb .Written by Alice May number I want to share everything with you had to Netherlands on the songs fest finally another da pose. The implementation at the Supreme moment not entirely flawless. The characteristicbach trumpet, which sat in the song, was by blundering technique at the time which was used not to hear. The cause was the microphone, which was not open. Maywood finally ended with only 25 points on a 15th place.

The fracture, the lawsuit and a death[Edit]Edit

The early 1990s were released but there are still some flopped singles in 1995, Maywood finally apart. Alice May and Caren Wood started a solo career, separately, however, both without success. In 1997 it seemed just that the sisters would come back together, but so far it proved eventually not to come. Mid november brought Alice Maywood a new self-penned single entitled Rise In The Morning. The song flopped. When Caren got a new relationship and other priorities set went, there was quarrel between the two sisters. In subsequent years it was bickering two regular subject of the tabloid press. Alice married on 20 november 1996 with businessman Rob van Wijk. In February 1996, was officially laid down that only Alice Maywood was allowed to use the name now, but Caren kept itself do not. Therefore flexed Alice in 1999 a lawsuit against Caren to prevent its even longer to use the name Maywood. The Vice President of the Court in Arnhem , Alice May end up in the same. They got the rights because they had written the lyrics and music. Caren Wood should no longer use the additions Maywood and ex-Maywood. They had to pay 5,000 guilders for each violation, up to a maximum of 250,000 guilders.

On 30 december 2000 was Alice suddenly widow when her husband, Rob van Wijk, died of cardiac arrest.

Comeback[Edit]Edit

After years at odds with each other having lived, was announced in 2004 that Alice and Caren together again were going to occur. However, this attempt at reconciliation failed. In 2006 it became known that Alice through auditions went in search of another singer to blow new life in Maywood. This was eventually Rose Lang, with whom Alice planned a comeback appearance in the Red & Blue Club in Antwerp. The action, to be held on Sunday december 3, 2006, however, was called off just before that date. The cooperation between Alice and Rose Lang turned out not to work. "Our characters layers too far apart," said Alice. "I have a strong framed idea on how it should sound and how the decoration should be." Langston disappeared back into anonymity.

Alice went ahead on her own the schnabbel circuit with the biggest hits from the repertoire of Maywood. However, once again they went looking for a new partner. They found a singer, Inge Peters, with which they formed a new Maywood in 2010 and made a revival tour. Even gigs abroad were not excluded. "We still have contacts from our glory years", says Alice in an interview. "Through the website often requests from countries such as Japan and Russia." When asked if they don't want to try again with her sister, she says: "who knows. The wonders are the world out yet. "

Caren Wood made a new start in early 2007 without sister Alice. Caren went into sea with folk artist Henk Saha and returned on the shelves with a café chantant-like program, Hotel Melancholy.

In 2013, it was announced that Maywood weather comes together for the TastyGerard Joling 's concerts in the Ziggo Dome. [1this is buried the hatchet between the sisters. They also bring out new material.
