Growing up in Mayo, Ireland, Maria spent many years crafting and developing her unique sound of alternative-folk.

First taking influence from the story-telling elements of Irish-trad, as well as artists like Regina Spektor and Lisa Hannigan, her music aims to share deeply personal, humanising and heartbreaking experiences. Live, Maria has toured extensively across the UK and Ireland supporting the likes of KT Tunstall, James Vincent McMorrow and Marc Cohn. Maria’s new single ‘Hollow’ will be released next month, followed by a string of dates as a special guest to Paul Noonan (Bell X1, Printer Clips) on his forthcoming autumn tour.
