Inspired by Nat King Cole, Freddie Cole, Marc Jordan, Ella Fitzgerald and Nancy Wilson, her pellbinding stage presence will uplift your heart and brighten your day.

Maria recently released her third album As Time Goes By with special guests Campbell Ryga, Seamus Blake, Phil Dwyer and Lionel Young including timeless classics by Johnny Mandel, Michel Legrand, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Johnny Mercer and Burt Bacharach.
