Since graduating, uniquely talented jazz pianist and composer Maria Chiara Argirò has paved her way into the music industry via her interest in contemporary jazz.
Born in Italy and based in London, Maria went on tour fresh out of university around Europe, Asia, USA and Mexico with British art rock band These New Puritans. As well as playing in festivals around the world, Maria has supported the likes of Bjork in Los Angeles and played in well-known venues including The Barbican Centre, Londo. Her music has received significant radioplay from JazzFM Radio.
Maria released her cleverly-written album The Fall Dance in November 2016 with Otradek Records, before preparing for her 2017 seven-date UK tour. Her latest project is in the form of a stunning new music video, brilliantly combining her hit Dream R with a video by illustrator My Elastic Brain (aka Pedro Oliveira) that translates jazz into an exciting visual format. The erratic yet beautiful video takes the viewer on a journey through Maria’s dream world, adding another dimension to her work and putting her in great stead for success in the world of contemporary jazz.
