Maria Joy


Maria Joy discovered her love for music at a young age, the piano being her first love and inspiration. In an environment that wasn’t safe to express her true feelings she found an avenue to express her emotions in the sounds that she would create. She soon discovered the magic and power of vibration to activate trapped emotional debris to be felt and released. We must feel it to heal it.

She spends a lot of time in nature drawing inspiration from the birds and waterfalls sculpting sounds to bring her listeners on a journey to lead them into the heart of Mother Nature and therefore into our own hearts to feel our pain and longing so we can step into the fullest expression of who we truly are.

Maria grew up singing harmonies with her mother and later went to a music academy where she sang in a choir and double trio touring the west coast.
Later she moved back to the south to attend The University of Chattanooga Tennessee to study music composition.
After traveling around the states writing and playing music she finally settled in Durango where she continues to follow her passion for music and healing through sound.
