La La La La. Sing with Me
Singer and songwriter Maria Tucker moved to Nashville, Tennessee to learn the true art of writing a song.
On stage, she played her original county songs and would occasionally throw in a funny song about a recent oddball encounter or strange happening. Soon, her funny songs were being requested.
And here’s what she learned: write about what you know.
So instead of trucks, cowboy boots, and love ballads, Maria stuck to what she knew: the strange.
Her real-life daily doses of odd happenings—from dating, Home Depot shopping (for more than just paint, if you catch my drift)—and the not-so-occasional road rage inspire her most requested songs.
Armed with a keyboard and one helluva vocal range, Maria captures the hearts and funny bones of audiences in comedy clubs across the southeastern U.S.,
Recently, her parody "If I Die Dumb" (from the original song, "If I Die Young" 2010, The Band Perry) went viral on both TikTok and Instagram.
A co-write with Steve Goodie ranked #21 on the Dr. Demento’s “Top 25 Songs of 2015.”
Maria writes original songs, lyrics and music, but she also dabbles in writing parodies.
“It’s like I have a radio station in my head. There is always a song playing. So, I mix their tune and whatever random thought is in my knocking around in my head for some sort of strange parody creation.”
She uses this to as her tagline for comedy: “I don’t hear voices. I hear tunes that are playing in my head all the time! I’m not schizophrenic—I’m schizo-phonic!
