Maria Sebastion

Maria Sebastian is most likely known for her versatility. She has opened for dozens of national acts in various genres and has recorded with many of their members. She has earned 12 Buffalo / Nightlife Music Awards, a People’s Choice Award, a Buffalo Spree Album of the Year Award for Yellow Envelope, 2009, and three Global Music Awards, one for her performance on film producer Michael Z. Gordon‘s song “On the Run,” produced with Nelson Starr (used in the 2015 remake of the film Narc) and most recently for two singles (each) on her upcoming disc “Be”. She has had music placed in television and film (3 lbs., Narc (2015), Discovery Channel, Melrose Place, others), performs regularly in Buffalo, and has opened 8 times for Roger McGuinn of The Byrds, and 3 times for folk favorite Vance Gilbert.

In 2011, Maria toured across the US with 10,000 Maniacs as a backing vocalist and rhythm guitarist. Her 2009 CD, Yellow Envelope, has earned her praise among all it has been passed on to, including The Hudson Valley’s Freeman Online (“Sebastian has a great record on her hands here.”) Maria’s latest disc, “Be” recently won a silver medal from the Global Music Awards in the Album category (March 2018) as well as two silver medals for singles “Be” and “I Do.” In 2018, Maria reunited with some of her former bandmates and peers from the mid-’90s to form “The Rock Show” — a specialty show paying tribute to ’80s and ’90s music. Before their first show, their rehearsal video received nearly five thousand views as friends and fans built up excitement for the reunion. She has done other tributes in recent years as well.
