Artist Biography

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, this former traffic reporter and disc jockey lived in Los Angeles for eleven years and sang The Langham Huntington, (formerly the Ritz Carlton,) The Four Seasons in Westlake Village, Chaya of Beverly Hills, and The Torrance Civic Center to name a few. Maria also opened for jazz trumpeter Chuck Mangione at The Coach House and in Columbus, Ohio she was featured with the opening act for Bob Dorough.

Maria recorded with Alphonso Johnson and Ndugu Chancler for an album entitled “Chasing Dreams.” The EP received a wonderful review in Singer Magazine. But Maria is most excited about the original pop and R&B album which will feature guitarist and arranger J Curtis, who wrote Where Is The Love? by the Blackeyed Peas. The album is called Free As A Dove, and for it Maria wrote eight out of nine songs. Also as a songwriter, she wrote “So This Is Love,” a theme song for a sitcom of the same name on the web.

Maria has always been surrounded by diversity in music that reached far beyond what could be found in record stores. She began singing in the Melkite Catholic Church at a very early age, and soon began sharing the bandstand with her father Mike Jacobs, a drummer in the Cleveland area. Maria has always wanted to sing and began so by doing her rendition of favorite standards, a few of which are heard on her first album entitled “No Frills,” available on iTunes.

In the fourth grade Maria began fifteen years of classical flute study and some piano,gaining a new appreciation for European melody and harmony through much practice and listening. All of these rich, early experiences lead to superior ratings in flute competitions throughout high school, a music scholarship at The Ohio State University and singing jobs in area night clubs.
