Mariia Tsvetkova is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter, originally from Elektrostal, Russia, a small city near Moscow. Gravitating towards the music of Adele, Alicia Keys, Andra Day, Ed Sheeran and Etta James, Mariia started her career performing her original music in local venues with her live band. Her sophisticated pop sound is rooted in a wide range of influences from her experiences traveling and performing at concerts and festivals around the world.
In 2015, she was a contestant on The Voice Russia, and she recorded a collaborative album in Switzerland, before releasing her debut EP in Moscow in 2019. In May 2019, she was invited to attend SongwriterCamps in Palm Springs, hosted by hit songwriters Pam Sheyne and Richard Harris, where her talent attracted the attention of Nitanee Paris, Director of A&R at ArtistMax, a Los Angeles based artist development and education enterprise founded by Grammy-winning producer Ken Caillat (Fleetwood Mac; Colbie Caillat).
She was signed by Caillat and ArtistMax shortly after that.
