Vocalist and composer Maria Schafer shares her silken voice through cheeky lyrics and catchy melodies exploring themes of intimacy, independence, community, and lifelong learning while melding influences from straight ahead jazz with world and Brazilian music traditions.

Chestnut-worthy originals lay bare a wandering heart worth knowing helmed by a curious mind worth hearing. Embracing the whimsical charms and medicine of humor and humility, Ms. Schafer's easy-going and honest approach to singing is a beguiling and refreshing taste of connection.


"Schafer's awareness of when to embellish and when to pull on the reins stands out among the current crop of jazz singers all-too eager to show off their chops at the expense of communicating actual emotion." - Jefferson Public Radio​
