    Maria the MexicanMaria the Mexican began May 5th, 2011 in Chicago when vocalists Maria and Teresa Cuevas hired blues/funk musician Garrett Nordstrom to play Mariachi guitar. Having been lifelong musicians from the Midwest, Nordstrom and the Cuevas Sisters paired up with guitarist Jason Riley to form Maria the Mexican, an Americana Soul/Mexicana Groove band with strong guitars and smooth vocals.

    Maria the Mexican is a mezcla of traditional Mariachi roots and contemporary blues-rock delivered in English and Spanish. It is a true hybrid of Mexican folklore and rock-n-roll. Their debut album, Moon Colored Jade, drops in October of 2013.
