The Way, recorded in Nigeria on a recent trip by Maria, is a track bringing afrobeat with a Gospel feel, but with an up-tempo vibe to get everyone dancing. Working with the renowned Nigerian producer J Moses, Maria show how versatile she is by being able to adapt to all kinds of music genders.
Maria Bond is no stranger to the stage, performing throughout most of her life, whether that be on the television or within local choirs, she quickly realised she was on her journey to making music. Her TV credits include the likes of BBC, LBC, Sky and Sound Radio.
Her biggest musical influences come from classic gospel, jazz and soul musicians yet her sound today does not adhere to the strict boundaries of genre. Contemporary notions of pop layered on top of her musical roots is what makes for a truly unique artist.
Maria boasts many creative attributes, with song-writing, producing and performing going hand in hand with her work as an author. One of Maria’s greatest achievements was graduating university with a BA Degree in Music and a Diploma in Drama.
