Feeling a bit camera shy


Maria Forgotten began quietly in June 2002. As an acoustic duo, their sound was unique yet familiar, raw yet sincere. In 2003 they released 2 EP’s (Unexpected and Pay Attention… You Might Learn Something) before making the decision to expand their roster. In 4 short years, the simple duo has grown to a powerful 6 piece rock outfit, each member bringing their own distinctive tastes and influences to the project. This individuality was the catalyst needed for their sound to grow with aggression and intensity, while still retaining a hint of the sound that began their journey.

Now, as a powerhouse of energy, passion, and creativity, Maria Forgotten is on the path to absolute rock band status. The diversity in their songwriting often transcends any constraints to one specific sound or genre, but every song remains completely palatable, connecting with each listener. This connection is strengthened by one fundamental truth: These musicians are listeners themselves.

Maria Forgotten released their debut self-titled EP in May 2006. This 7-song disc stands as simply an introduction to what lies ahead for this impressive rock outfit. In a broad canvas of styles and textures, they display an inherent ability to transcend beyond labels of genre or classification. The lead track, “My Privilege”, displays the band’s knack for atmosphere and depth while showcasing strong melodic hooks and memorable lyrics. From the heartfelt piano-pop track “Unreachable” to the aggressive and angst ridden “Miss Opportunity”, these 6 young men have crafted a collection of music which has garnered them a loyal legion of fans.

Maria Forgotten has begun a long and arduous journey; one which will eventually catapult them far beyond average garage band status and deep into the clutches of rock music stardom.
