Album Notes
Fueled by her pure, heart warming vocals and deft guitar playing, Maria Sangiolo's latest adult contemporary folk release, The Way We Live (Raging River Records), is her most intimate collection of keenly crafted songs to date, showcasing her range of writing styles from light-hearted, melancholic ballads to rich narratives in the traditional folk form to fun, contemporary folk. Produced by award winning guitarist Jim Henry (Blue Earth), joined by Richard Gates, Gideon Freudmann and Cheryl Hoenemeyer, The Way We Live's sparse instrumentation highlights her engaging, pristine vocals.

Born and raised in Stoughton on the south shore of Massachusetts, now residing in Northeastern Connecticut, Sangiolo's been singing since she could hear the angel of music riding in the backseat of her parent's blue chevy wagon as a young child. Formal training on the violin led her to the discovery of her voice and resulted in private guitar lessons and voices lessons at the New England Conservatory of Music in high school. It wasn't until after she graduated from college that she learned of the acoustic music scene in the Boston area and began performing her own songs in 1989.

On the strength of her first recording, Eyes of the Heart (Raging River Records 1993), Maria had local Boston radio station WUMB FM name her in the most albums played list and the Boston Globe said "Hometown singer soars in her debut album,"... "Every so often a knockout new voice emerges...." Her sophomore release, Follow Your Own Road (Signature Sounds 1996), landed her on the prestigious independent label Signature Sounds and launched her career nationally with an aggressive touring schedule and heavy airplay to make her name on the folk charts at college stations throughout the US and abroad. But it was Blue Earth (Signature Sounds 1998) that garnered national praise, '...crowning achievement...exquisite fingerpicking...such a rich voice...songs that are sturdy clear and accessible.'

Sangiolo has shared the stage with Mark Erelli, Tracy Grammer, Patty Larkin, Cheryl Wheeler, Chris Smither, John Gorka and Livingston Taylor, to name a few. She enjoys return engagements to all the favorite folk clubs on the national circuit, Club Passim, The Iron Horse, The Freight and Salvage and Eddie's Attic, to name a few. Her work thus far spans 15 years and four recordings, headlining her own shows now for the past 10 years. The Way We Live was released in the fall of 2002 on Raging River Records.
