Biography

From the North of Scotland, Maria has managed to cultivate her own infectious brand of lyrical acoustic pop. Equally at home as a solo artist or with a band, Maria is an exceptional performer, combining an intense honesty with broad commercial appeal. A vastly experienced artist, Maria has taken her music across the UK to Ireland, France & the U.S.A.

In 2003 Maria played Celtic Connections, at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, and toured London’s acoustic venues, including The Kashmir Klub and The Halfmoon. This was followed by an appearance on the PRS/Songlink stage at the Go North music conference. Maria also supported The Proclaimers on their Scottish tour, appeared at the Stockton International Festival and played The Rainbow Room and The Acoustic Playhouse in Los Angeles.

Maria started 2004 with a return to Celtic Connections and then travelled to the U.S.A. to play acoustic venues in Memphis & Nashville. This was followed by shows in London and performances at Borders’ stores to promote her new CD, ‘Second Hand Charm’.

Maria’s song, ‘Mischief’, has been included on a BBC TV soundtrack and won an award in the UNISONG international songwriting contest.

Lyrics

I Don't Want Tomorrow To Be Monday

Written By: Maria Miller/Mike Reeves

Verse1
Scream out beneath the cover
Wake up the weekend’s over
Walk out and try to look brand new
Well I’m over dressed ‘cause I’m underrated
Don’t say much ‘cause I’m complicated
Try my best. Drink coffee to get through
But if I could stay asleep
It would get me through the week

Chorus
I don’t want tomorrow to be Monday
It comes too soon
I don’t want tomorrow to be Monday
It’s just too soon

Verse2
Head down. Keep out of trouble
Boss calls to burst my bubble
Sit back. Daydream through the day
Well it’s just two days ‘till I’m liberated
I’m wasted here. I get frustrated
Two more days to wish my life away
And I know it’ll be the same
‘Till Friday comes again

Chorus

Break
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday who’s gonna get you through
Thursday too. What are you gonna do to get you through

‘Cause you just can’t stay asleep
To get you through the week

Chorus

Stupid Words

Written By: Maria Miller & Mike Reeves


Verse 1
I am the question that you’ll never understand
The stranger in your ever-changing plans
I am

Verse 2
I know
I’ll think of you where ever you may go
The way I talk about you told me so
I know

Chorus
If I could take back all of those stupid words
I’d put them where they won’t be heard
If I could take back all the things I didn’t mean
I’d hide them where they won’t be seen

Verse 3
I’m sure
Being sad is what this heart is for
For giving all you can ‘till there’s no more
I’m sure

Verse 4
I try
To look like I’m so happy. It’s a lie
I know I’ve been a fool but don’t know why
I try

Chorus

Break
Now all the things I should have said
Are running round inside my head
It’s too late
All the things I should have done
But waited ‘till the chance was gone
They’re gone

Chorus

If I could take back all the times I let you down
I’d leave them where they won’t be found
If I could take back all the things that caused you pain
I’d throw them out and start again

Just A Little

Written By: Maria Miller & Mike Reeves

Verse 1
You say that you want to
Try a little something new
‘Cos you’re bored with what you do
Just a little

Verse 2
You say that you need to
Find a little more of you
Want to try a different view
Just a little

Chorus
Well you’ll never get to Heaven
With the heart you’ve been given
And you’ll never be forgiven if you don’t
You’ll never find a feelin’
That you’ll always believe in
You’re willing it to happen but it won’t

Break 1
And when you get you’re head together
Back then you always said
Forever’s far too long

Verse 3
You say that you want to
Be a little like me
‘Cos you’re lovin’ what you see
Just a little

Verse 3
You say that you hate me
That’s a little unfair
‘Cos I know how much you care
Just a little

Chorus

Break 2
And when you let your head get bigger
Back then you always said
You figured it’s okay

Chorus
