Maria Kelly has been writing music since she was 10. Growing up in Mayo, Ireland she has spent years crafting and developing her sound into the pin-drop vocals and beautiful lyrics we can hear on her first track with Veta Records; Before It Has Begun.
Before It Has Begun is about the beginning of the end of a relationship and that moment where one person realises they will not be able to love someone in the same way that they are loved in return. It is a humanising and heartbreaking tale in which Maria’s vocals, which have a delicate, fragile quality similar to Lucy Rose but with the story telling ability of Regina Spektor draw you in to share the emotion of what the protagonist is going through.
Maria has played numerous shows in both the UK and Ireland supporting the likes of Orla Gartland and Wyvern Lingo and playing venues such as Birthdays, Whelans, The Button Factory, Cyprus Avenue, The Roisin Dubh, and The Workmans Club as a solo musician. Maria is working in the studio on new tracks for her next EP and developing her live sound in preparation for a busy 2016!
Before It Has Begun is available to download for free now via Veta Records.
