Singer and songwriter
Maria is a Finnish-American pop singer/songwriter/producer and multi-instrumentalist. She started playing violin at the age of 4, piano at 8, and finally, singing in her early teens. She can either accompany herself with piano or she can use the pre-recorded background sound or possibly sing with a local band.
Maria’s career in the music business began as a recording artist at EMI Music in Finland. Her singles, “Onnellinen” (Happy), “Katsoin aurinkoon” (I Looked at the Sun), and “Olipa kerran” (Once Upon a Time) were played frequently on Finnish radio stations in the late 1990’s.
Maria moved to the USA with her American husband and has received an extensive audience and airplay on a number of different American radio stations. Today she focuses mainly on producing music.
