Maria Ellis is an 19-year-old pop singer, songwriter and musician from Long Island, New York, attending Berklee College of Music.
Maria's genuine approach stems from her sincere love of music and desire to make music that is as honest as possible. Her wistful voice and unapologetic sound attracts listeners of all
types and ages.
Maria's authentic style of writing started at the tender age of six when she began writing down the melodies that previously she had been composing in her mind.
Preferring to be writer, composer, and performer of all her own work, she is committed to making music that rises to the level of art with her music often giving voice to the disenfranchised and the heartbroken. Maria grew up to be a fan of many genres, but
focuses on pop, R&B, and alternative rock. Maria's style musically links all these genres together with an attitude. Citing Lana Del Rey, Kurt Cobain, and Rihanna as her biggest
influencers, Maria creates music that is instantly likable but not easily characterized. Vocally, Maria's style is all her own, possessing great range, thanks to the help of her vocal coach, Don Lawrence who has trained the likes of Lady Gaga, Bono and Christina Aguilera.
Maria's musicality is probably her most impressive facet. At the age of 6, she taught herself piano. At the age of 12, she taught herself the acoustic and electric guitar. Now 19, Maria plays and writes equally well on piano, guitar and ukulele.
Maria is a natural performer and is completely at ease in front of small and large audiences. She has appeared in many live venues since the age of ten, including performances at New
York's Bitter End, "Save the Bay" Concert in the Hamptons and opening for Rick Derringer at the Riverhead Theater, New York. Late last year, Maria showcased her talent at New York's famed "The Cutting Room", premiering nine of her original songs, performing lead vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar and piano.
Hoping that others will find inspiration through her music, Maria’s ultimate goal in life is to touch other people’s lives with her songs.
