Maria Jackson

Maria’s style is an original blend of different genres like pop, R&B, soul and Latin, while she sometimes flirts with flamenco, gospel and electro. She combines incredible vocals and a charismatic stage presence to really lift the atmosphere. In 2005 Maria was awarded a scholarship to study at Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, a year later Robin Gibb chose her song ‘Hold On’ as part of that year’s LIPA Records compilation. She has worked as songwriter, producer and vocalist for dance acts Simon & Shaker and Diesler. As a songwriter Maria has worked for Cathy Dennis and Fabien Waltman, and her song ‘Kiss Me’ was awarded the BBC New Talent award 2008.
