Maria grew up in the small town of New Boston, Michigan. She got her first guitar as a surprise Christmas present in 2006 from her dad, and though unexpected, it changed her life forever. Since then, she has written many songs and played at local coffee houses, hookah lounges, radio stations, and even featured on some hip hop tracks with producer and aspiring recording artist, Klass Witta K. Her music style is definitely different. It is a unique mix of its own with influences from Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, and at times Colbie Caillat. Her music sometimes even features a folk twist and she really likes to try out many styles to find what works. She writes about love, life, and everything in between. In May she will be venturing out to LA to record her first studio album and meet some hopeful connections.
