Hi! I'm Maria Rae, a singer songwriter based in London, specialising in lyrics and melody. I love collaborating with other musicians and have a vocal style that works best with pop songs.
As a versatile singer, composer and lyricist, I work with clients on varying briefs, making sure to have clear communication and match the brief presented to me. I play the piano and usually involve it in my creative process - I also offer piano accompaniment to those looking for a piano track.
My turn around time is typically 7-10 days. If a quicker return is needed, a fee may apply.
I'd love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch!
