In case you didn’t know, Maria Lynn and Toniia have joined forces for a collaborative effort dubbed All or Nothing, an EP that explores the varied musical upbringing and versatility of the new found pop princess.
Her ability to convey a message emoted in “tenderness and vulnerability” is coupled with an integral musical identity that speaks louder than the music itself. She has her finger on the pulse; finding the perfect balance of passion and integrity with an incendiary sound that evokes a seductive vocal delivery that posits her as an artist whose musical ability is unparalleled in today’s digital age.
From track to track Maria Lynn lends a seductive vocal to a current and beautifully produced piece of work, and upon closer inspection, the picture she creates is poignant and a creatively detailed homage to her surroundings, feelings and experiences.
