I love a good success story. Especially when itâ€™s earned off making great music with no major label machine push from behind the scenes. Thatâ€™s what happened with a band called The Marias. The producer from the band contacted me about a year ago to see if I wanted to mix their debut EP. When I checked out the rough mixes, I just had this gut feeling there was something special about the EP. The songs were just so raw and honest, but also had this fresh modern twist to them that I hadnâ€™t heard in awhile. People were either going to get it and fall in love or it was going to fly over everyoneâ€™s heads and not do anything.
Fast forward to about a year later now and theyâ€™re selling out tours with Live Nation and getting their singles placed on the biggest Spotfiy playlists you can get. Itâ€™s just absolutely amazing and inspiring.
I know thereâ€™s a lot of special sounding bands out there who unfortunately will never get their shineâ€¦. but when it does happen. And youâ€™re playing by your own rules when it happens. It really is something special. Itâ€™s what making music is all about.
