""Amplified Artist of the Month" - Maria DuBiel"

For the past few years, local songstress Maria Dubiel has been playing her original tunes to crowds of highly attentive, captive audiences. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of being in the audience several times and consider myself a huge fan.The most recent being at the Women Who Rock Concert, a benefit put together by Weekender Magazine staffer Rachel Pugh, The River Street Jazz Cafe and various local businesses. A fundraiser for the Domestic Violence Service Center, the show was packed with members of the community offering their support for the services provided at the center. Maria was generous enough to offer her talent for the evening. While she was preparing for her set, the crowd noise was extremely loud, but when she sang her first note – heads turned, eyes focused, and the bar fell silent. I turned to my friend, a classical guitar professor at Wilkes University, and saw his jaw drop at her staggering guitar skills.

Her debut album, Goin’ Back is raw and captures the same energy that she brings to her shows. The songwriting is excellent and anyone who’s ever been in love, had a broken heart, or has good taste in music will love it.

I had the pleasure of picking Maria’s brain on the subjects of songwriting, the new direction of the music business and what’s in store for her future............... (click on URL for full story) - PA Music

“Goin’ Back” is a rich and lusciously delicious tonal outing from Maria DuBiel. Her five-song CD is generously laden with tunes that would compliment any coffeehouse/easy chair listening situation and is sure to unwind the listener with a smile." - PA

"Can't Wait For More!!"

"She is an amazing songwriter and her voice and passion make these songs a masterpiece! I still remember begging her to sing "One Love" every time I saw her perform. It's a great song and surely worth some airtime in all radio markets! I hope the rest of the world can appreciate Maria's gifts and talents!" April 2, 2009
