Cornwall Today Magazine - March 2013

Maria Heseltine has a varied life. Having studied Fine Art, she was inspired to sing while working at a gallery in Italy, where she heard a local girl give a Puccini recital. In London, she modelled for Eduardo Poalozzi and performed in a Peter Greenaway installation, before training in Vocal Performance at Trinity Collge of Music.

Since moving to Cornwall, she has performed with the aston Quartet and has performed on more than 100 soundtracks for artist Andrew Lanyon.

She now teaches Singing at Penwith College in Penzance. Voices was recorded in collaboration with Clive Parnell, who wrote all the lyrics and music. It's a gentle listen, swaying Bossa nova alternating with wistful songs of love and loss.
