I love a good success story. Especially when it’s earned off making great music with no major label machine push from behind the scenes. That’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 hadn’t heard in awhile. People were either going to get it and fall in love or it was going to fly over everyone’s heads and not do anything.
Fast forward to about a year later now and they’re selling out tours with Live Nation and getting their singles placed on the biggest Spotfiy playlists you can get. It’s just absolutely amazing and inspiring.
I know there’s a lot of special sounding bands out there who unfortunately will never get their shine…. but when it does happen. And you’re playing by your own rules when it happens. It really is something special. It’s what making music is all about.
