Maryann left corporate life (or as she calls it ‘doing time in a bank’) to pursue her passion for performing and never looked back. A singer, songwriter, musician, comedian, writer, and actor—Maryann is the consummate entertainer. After winning the New York City Songwriters Festival award, her musical career took off. Her song "City of Light," was recorded by the late Danny Aiello and nominated for a Grammy. Her second CD, "Playing with My Heart!" debuted in 2017 and her third CD, Make Me Crazy debuted in 2019 and is featured is on iTunes, Amazon and Pandora and downloaded all over the world.
Maryann didn’t get the nickname "Boom Boom" for nothing. She literally doesn’t know the meaning of ‘slow down,’ while continuing to write and sing original music, she also began pursuing stand-up comedy. She’s performed in comedy clubs throughout the tri-state area and opened for comedy greats Joy Behar and Ray Romano.,
Looking for a way to showcase both her music and comedy, Maryann formed “The Italian Chicks” variety show in 2010. Performing as both its headliner and lead musical talent while featuring a bevy of Italian-American funny women was an instant hit. The combination of stand-up, hilarious song parodies, and tender ballads that have become an integral part of the show continues to win over audiences.
Even while touring the country with the Italian Chicks, she found time to pen her one-woman play; “Agita” which opened to critical acclaim in 2017.She has since did a live taping of the play and its about ready for viewing. Needless to say Maryann relies heavily on caffeinated coffee. Espresso naturally.
