Maria’s debut album “Her Night At Noon” was released in 2012. The album contains a selection of her own songs and songs co-written with Swedish musical partner and multi-instrumentalist Björn Dahlberg.
Maria’s mixed heritage is clearly visible in her songwriting. Her sultry, melodic, jazz based compositions inspired by her late father Al Timothy (Trinidadian jazz saxophonist/composer) also possess a haunting, celtic melancholy true to her irish roots. Her vocals are heart-wrenchingly sincere, holding warmth and fragility as her stories of love, loss and longing are told and retold.
“If I can sing one song that gives one person sanctuary or one song that gives one person a feeling that someone understands and they are not alone, then I have given a little back of what music has done for me..”
“Pure honesty, a beautiful singer” Liane Carroll (BBC Best Jazz Vocalist Award Winner UK)
“Darn pretty, tasteful and simply.. fantastic!” David Myhr (The Merrymakers. Sweden)
“Smooth and Jazzy, piano ballads full of sincere melodrama and Judy Garland-esq vocals” Ray Padgett (Cover Me NewYork USA)
“Hauntingly pretty songs. Hearing these songs in a small venue under low lights would be incredible, yet that’s almost how the studio versions sound” Christopher Levine (Eclectiblogs. Texas USA)
“Sade is back in town but this time she’s half irish” Rebecca Kenny (Actress, London)
