About Me
Maria Elena Sanchez is an Award Winning Singer/Songwriter that was born in Cuba, raised in NYC, lived for some years in Miami, and now resides in Houston, TX. Maria Elena started her musical career in her 20’s as a solo singer - she has been a church choir director and pianist/organist, piano teacher and aside from her music, a published poet - maybe that’s why lyric writing came easy to her. Maria Elena's musical background encompasses this country's wide and diverse eras of rock music, as well as her Spanish heritage, which is demonstrated in her varied musical arrays of songs – her composition style being unique. Now she wants to share and inspire with her love of music, everyone - her goal being to have her music heard and sung all over the world.

How did you hear about us?
Houston, TX
What is your profession (singer, rapper, songwriter, poet, dancer, model, music fan, etc.)?
How many members are in your band?
Solo Artist - me, myself and I!
What is your style of music?
My music is influenced by rock, R&B, soul, jazz and many other styles. As for my style, I believe my style encompasses a rock/ballad and possibly R&B type of sound. When I write music, it comes from inside of me - I try NOT to sound like anyone else. I want my music to speak for itself.
Who are your influences in the music industry?
All the great artist that had the courage to create and not give up. I love music going back all the way to WWI - yes - it's great stuff, but from the '60s on - Hendrix, Doors, Beatles, Stones - rock in general, and don't forget Motown - I grew up in NYC and Motown was the way to go!

Dear Maria Elena,
Thanks for submitting your new material for the evaluation. I liked the songs very much. Like last time, I'd like to mention that the majority of artists score in the 2.5 to 3.5 range in the various categories. Whenever an artist sees a 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 or 3.5 as a score in a certain category (or categories) it means that's an area I feel they need to improve and develop. When an artist sees 4, 4.5 or 5 as their score in a category, it's a validation from a professional, confirming that the songs are of the highest level and show strong potential in the ultra-competitive music industry. To really raise the bar, every artist should work hard to earn a 4.5 or 5 in every category. It's a very competitive business and people averaging in the 3's (or less) will probably not get too far without a great deal of improvement and development. I don't give out 4's and 5's easily, so any of those you see, you have earned. Well done!

Thanks again for the music submission and continued best wishes! Please keep me posted on your career progress. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a great day!

Best wishes, Gene Foley


Maria Elena Sanchez proudly announces her award for Best Song in the Singer/Songwriter Category for May 2013, in The Akademia Music Awards, for her song “I’m On Top of the World”. The selection committee stated: “In an era of slick vacuum-packed production, Maria's authentic and heartfelt vocals and lyrics seem refreshingly innocent.”


Just released new music - please come by and take a listen.

Wishing you the best . . . Maria Elena Sanchez


Foley Entertainment has evaluated some of the songs on Maria Elena's new album "My World & I Know It" and on a rating scale of 1-5 with 5 being the highest, has given a 5 out of 5 rating on her melodies - way to go!

"It's also wonderful to see an Artist creating music with a positive message.  The song you dedicated to the people involved with the tragedy in Newtown, CT was very strong, emotional and moving.

Keep up the great work in 2013 and beyond.  Thanks Maria!"
Foley Entertainment
("Watching Over You" is song dedicated to the people of Newtown, CT.)



"It is never too late to release music as it is timeless and this can be said for poet and musician Maria Elena Sanchez."
