    Maria brought tears to my eyes with her vocal performance on this 3rd song she has recorded for me. She is a rare and special talent who is incredibly easy to work with. Maria brings such a beautiful vocal sound and musical intuition to every line. She brings a song to life and elevates it with grace and soul. What a pleasure to work with her again!

    If you get a chance to work with Maria, you are very lucky! She is this one diamond everyone is looking for and one of the best vocalists I know! She is one of that artists that makes even the smallest song shine like it's supposed to be the biggest hit! I doubt there is anything she can't sing! On top of that she is an amazing human being, very very nice, always professional, encouraging and creates a team working spirit just like that. Don't look further, take Maria! 1000% recommendation!

    Maria Z is a legitimate Star! Her vocals brought our song to life and gave it the exact flavor it needed. While waiting for our tracks I listened to a lot of her music and I fell in love with her voice/production and songwriting. I believe you will too.

    An absolutely phenomenal singer and absolute pleasure to work with. Maria was punctual and professional, very understanding of the recording process, and very kind. Her singing is top quality and ready to go with very little processing. As someone who comps vocals on the regular, I was blown away by her stellar voice. I suggest you hire her!!!

    This vocalist is outstanding! She works quickly and still provides high quality work! This demo was fairly detailed and she captured the details in her vocals.

    Also, this is a vocalist who knows how to maintain excellent rapport during a project! Great communication as well.

    Maria's the real MVP, always coming through on whatever the project is. I've worked with her on several projects as a producer and as a result I've gotten to see her workflow and vibe. She's always a keen attention to detail and a level of tenacity that seems to be rare. Always bringing the voice game and writing at 100 when we've done work.

    Maria Z has so many runs you'll need a pair of nikes and a sweatband just to keep up! Her range is incomparable, her songwriting ability goes head to head with any of the big hitters out there today. We've worked on countless projects together over the past 4 years and plan to do many more!

If you're looking for an awesome sound while having an easy-going, effortless working relationship, hire Maria. Hands Down. A++++

    "The Voice of an Angel" - What an Amazing, Beautiful and Unique Soul. Maria Z is hands down the most easy going and most professional person I've ever worked with. She has an amazing voice/range and she is an incredible songwriter! Best decision I've made was to start working with her! All I can say is.... "Get Maria Z while you can!" #FACTS

    I have worked with Maria on various projects since 2013, and I will continue to do so as she is one of the most talented vocalists/songwriters in the business! I highly recommend her talent, and character. 10 stars!
