Watch List: Maria Zouroudis - Locked Out Of Heaven
Maria Zouroudis is an artist we have featured several times previously, most recently in June of last year, and we have watched as her profile has grown, both on YouTube and further afield. The Greek-American singer/songwriter/producer says she 'had very little training. I took piano lessons for a short time when I was younger, taught myself harmonies by singing in different octaves when listening to the radio and produce from ear. The rest of what I know comes from the heart and what I've been learning along the way.' She describes her music as 'pop with a touch of soul, rock and R&B', and, although all music inspires her, 'I really soak up almost all music that I hear', she was particularly influenced when she was younger by Aerosmith, Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey and Frank Sinatra. With over 39, 000 YouTube subscribers, and having been a Top Ten Finalist in the Guitar Center's 'Singer Songwriter' competition, Maria continues to pursue her dream to become 'an established fixture in the industry'. Here she sings 'Locked Out Of Heaven' by Bruno Mars.
