“I sing straight from the heart”: Mariah K follows her passion for music

Mariah Keramianaki is a singer/songwriter of Greek-Cretan decent who was born and bred in a small country town called Crookwell in NSW, Australia. There she grew up amongst her family’s owned café business they’ve run for over 40 years, where Mariah essentially was taught the elements that serve as a solid foundation for a strong work ethic from an early age. Whilst juggling work Mariah still applied herself to her passions of playing the piano, singing and writing her own original material. Her love and dedication to working on her craft and developing her musical skills, has taken her on a journey of pursuit to creating new ideas; consistently challenging herself and nurturing her growth as an artist. That level of grind paid off when she accepted a development deal with Oceanic Records (Old Binda Road Studios) where she has been recording and releasing both her original tracks and cover songs.
