From the North of Scotland, Maria has managed to cultivate her own infectious brand of lyrical acoustic pop. Equally at home as a solo artist or with a band, Maria is an exceptional performer, combining an intense honesty with broad commercial appeal. A vastly experienced artist, Maria has taken her music across the UK to Ireland, France & the U.S.A.
In 2004 Maria traveled to the U.S.A. to play acoustic venues in Memphis & Nashville. This was followed by shows in London and performances at Borders’ stores to promote her new CD, ‘Second Hand Charm’.
Maria’s song, ‘Mischief’, has been included on a BBC TV soundtrack and won an award in the UNISONG international songwriting contest.
In 2003 Maria played Celtic Connections, at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, and toured London’s acoustic venues, including The Kashmir Klub and The Halfmoon. This was followed by an appearance on the PRS/Songlink stage at the Go North music conference. Maria supported The Proclaimers on their Scottish tour, appeared at the Stockton International Festival and played The Rainbow Room and The Acoustic Playhouse in Los Angeles.
In 2005 Maria appeared at Music Works, in Glasgow, and Manchester’s In The City Convention.
