Clean vocals and rich storytelling describe Maria Belyea's first project 'Grace'. Recorded at Blue Sky Studios in Delmar, New York; 'Grace' is a mixture of folk storytelling ('A Soldier's Mother's Prayer'), bluesy jazz ('You Didn't Say The Words'), and good ol' Southern Gospel/Country ('Leave Your Sins At The Door'). The project is acoustic. It's intentional simplicity emphasizing the beauty of the words. It is an intimate look into the songwriter's heart that leaves listener with the impression that Maria is right in their living room, singing her songs just for them.
