At the age of seventeen, Maria was signed to Sparrow Records, a Christian music supplementary of EMI, after being spotted singing at a wedding. She later appeared on the debut album by former Christian band Avalon member Jody McBrayer.

One of her songs "Catwalk V-O-G-U-E" was featured on an episode of the reality series The Hills and later covered by German girl group Monroe.
