The best kept secret in music


"Pop Rocks"

"Hijack Maria's groove rock sound is evidence of influences that range from Damien Rice to Tool and from Tori Amos to Dave Matthews. Their sound is tight, comfortable, and has heads bobbing and feet tapping." - CamelSmokes.com-Michael Overa


Album- Crooked Smile 2006


Feeling a bit camera shy


From growing up in different states, areas, neighborhoods, Hijack Maria's performers always seemed to have some sort of "Kevin Bacon" connection. Be it Melissa and John unknowingly attending the same college, John living with Kyle's best friend, or Thane growing up with Melissa's good friends, all of them seemed to be destined to meet.

Hijack Maria has been performing in the Northwest for the better part of 3 years, since John, Kyle and Thane met Melissa (finally) through an unexpected studio session. The rest, as they say, is history.

The name Hijack Maria came from a pre-show discussion, in which the band members were lovingly (REALLY LOVINGLY) teasing Melissa about her ability to "Hijack" men from their significant others (Sorry Mel, we were just kidding. She doesn't actually steal men from their significant others). Eventually "Melissa" turned into "Maria" (only the names have been changed to protect the innocent), and off they went.
