Singer, songwriter, guitarist and drummer at heart, South LA –born Maria Blues plays a fusion of ska, reggae and Latin American rhythms with a hint of soul. Her stage name comes from one of her favorite Manu Chao songs, “The Merry Blues”. In addition to Manu Chao, she also draws inspiration from Amy Winehouse, Juan Gabriel, Chavela Vargas, and Mon Laferte. She previously played drums with several LA ska bands and is now raing her guitar and taking her vocals to the stage. Maria Blues brings her own unique sound to every show and captures the hearts of all audiences - blues, jazz, Latino, gringo, rock. As a Latina, Maria views her music as a way to uplift those who usually do not have the chance to speak their voice, especially women. Maria Blues will be celebrating the release of Look Who It Is with album release shows on Saturday, January 11 at The Concert Lounge in Riverside, CA and on Friday, January 24 at Catch One in Los Angeles, CA.
