About the Artist4th generation professional musician/songwriter/singer/performer/producer. Maria Claire had been singing, writing, and performing from age 6 on stages in the USA and in Israel. Many of these performances with various sibs, as all 5 of her siblings shared a very wide variety of creative genius.
With 12 CD's to her name and another on the way, Maria takes us along her musical journeys with something for everyone. Being open-minded and extremely versatile, her music varies according to moods and life's experiences ranging from Nu-Wave Mid-Eastern to techno, Jazz being her first love.
"I am married to my music. It's a relationship", says Maria, and although performing days are behind her, she continues to write and record only because she is "committed" to her musical relationship and her listeners. When MC isn't writing music or lyrics, she writes poetry which is just as deep and emotional as her music and singing.
"Music is a stage drop, the singer an actor. A song must be portrayed and sung from the core of our being. If it isn't heartfelt, it's just material. We need to become the song--To be it, see it, live it, and make it a part of who we are so the listener can relate on a personal level. My music is for the listener. Not for myself".
