singer, songwriter, performer
Indianapolis native Maria Diebolt has been pouring her heart into music since age 9. As a Butler University graduate and full time musician, she spends her days writing and her nights performing. Whether it’s an acoustic duo or a full band, Maria continually bonds with her audience, delivers powerful vocals, and aims to forge new connections every time.
Maria’s sound draws inspiration from Ariana Grande’s bold, r&b influenced style, and Taylor Swift’s catchy and relatable lyrics. And though she can go multi-genre when needed, pop music will forever sing in her heart. Other similar artists to Maria include Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, and Sabrina Carpenter.
Some of her greatest accomplishments so far include being recognized for her songwriting. Both nationally and internationally, songs like “Lock U Up” and “Boy, Bye” have won multiple awards, and continue to inspire her to grow as a writer and artist. Songwriting is what connects an artist to their audience. Maria strives to create art that her fans can not only relate to, but help them feel a sense of belonging and self-worth.
