Thanks to the relationship that rose between Conway and María, the band was born.

The Marías’ main focus, according to the band, is to develop an auditory and visual feeling with their audience.

María is Puerto-Rican born, but raised in Atlanta, Ga. Her father was the one who introduced her to music.

Her Puerto Rican roots are what inspire María’s music and brought her to write lyrics in Spanish.

The other band members are not fluent in Spanish, but that does not keep them from connecting with each other.
