Maria Keck is a classically trained flutist turned songwriter and folk-pop artist from Cincinnati, Ohio. In the 3.5 years since she started performing her original music, she has garnered the title of Cincinnati’s “flute looper”. Using a loop station to layer flute, vocals, synth, and ukulele under her folk-influenced lyrics, Maria crafts soulful and captivating songs that draw on themes of nature and the conflict and resolve of human emotion. Maria released her debut LP, The Gardener and Me, in June of 2023.
