With a vocal style described as "luscious and intimate, possessing an emotional maturity beyond her years," jazz vocalist Maria Schafer brings her interpretation of standards, pop songs, and modern jazz to the music scene of LA and Long Beach.
Whether in an intimate vocal duo with voice and guitar or a full combo with horn section, Maria infuses every phrase with passion and embraces each song as a story she has the privilege to tell, taking her audiences along for the ride. Her consummate swing feel, likewise affection for Brazilian music and penchant for putting a twist on pop tunes give her a widely varied songbook, with treats to offer music lovers from all realms of jazz and pop.
