Voice & Mindset Coach
Maru once began a career in psychology in The Netherlands - after obtaining her Master’s Degree in Cognitive Psychology - but quickly realized music was her real passion in life.
She signed a management and publishing deal with Sony/ATV in 2011 and has worked with several top producers, DJ’s and songwriters ever since, such as Jef Martens (Will.I.Am, Britney Spears), Jorgen Eloffson (Kelly Clarkson), Cass Lowe (Fifth Harmony, Zara Larsson) and Tearce Kizzo (Ne-Yo, Nicole Scherzinger), to name a few.
Soon after, she started releasing international singles, and partnered with major labels and brands, such as Sony Music, Atlantic Records, Spinnin Records & Heineken.
Since 2008, she has successfully coached hundreds of singers (from absolute beginners to seasoned professionals) to bring out the very best in themselves, honoring the mind-body connection. After years of seeing the spectacular effects of this approach, she developed a holistic vocal coaching method called 'Vocal Psychology', a process that optimizes your voice and your mindset.
"I’m committed to bringing out the best in each unique voice and person. I would love for you to start your own personal revolution. To have the courage to get out of the comfort zone. You CAN sing, you have a beautiful voice that wants to be heard. And cliche as it may sound, I truly believe you can do anything you put your mind to!"
