Maria has been belting out show tunes as the all singing and dancing, musical theatre kid to screaming down the mic as the lead singer of punk band, Escape Goat. Maria reached the pinnacle of her acting career when cast as a mute lesbian for a production of The Holiday at the Putney Arts Theatre. Alongside producing many shows in theatre, she managed bands from small local outfits to national tours. Maria also worked as a promoter in top London music venues. Whilst promoting together with Stan Mcleod, it became apparent that the live music industry required more transparency and sustainability. They created BandWagon and more recently Headliner. Headliner is now the leading online marketplace bringing world-class artists together with anyone that needs them for their event. They are also currently developing additional technologies to continue to raise the bar further for artists to manage their own careers.
