Maria Carrelli is a country/folk musician out of Cincinnati Ohio. Growing up in staunch Midwestern moral standards, Maria strove to break out of that defining mold and grab the essence of human existence. Crafting folk based, grass roots music, she probes her listeners by baring her soul through song. Her music is heavily influenced by old bluegrass standards and country music through the ages. She has played her music throughout the country and alongside various other musicians, weaving her own musical path as she continues to strengthen her songwriting.
