Maria Elena Sanchez was born in Cuba, raised in NYC, lived for some years in Miami, and now resides in Houston, TX. Maria Elena started her musical career in her 20’s as a solo singer - she has been a church choir director and pianist/organist, piano teacher and aside from her music, a published poet - maybe that’s why lyric writing came easy to her. Now she wants to share her love of music with everyone - her goal being to have her music heard and sung all over the world.
Maria Elena's composition's style is unique; coming from her heart and extraordinary mind. Her music is inspired by the many decades of songwriters that have shared their unique sounds with us. Maria Elena now wants to inspire future songwriters with her sound.
Wishing you the best . . . Maria Elena Sanchez
