Testify, the latest single brought to us by the sensational Maria Bond will be available from the 5th April on all major digital platforms.
Testify is a rhythm-infused track that draws inspiration from the sounds of South Africa and its vibrant music scene. The sweet melodies and funky beats in Testify together break out everybody’s inner dancer. This track, taken off her second studio album ‘Light of the World, is a clever combination of instrumentals and vocals, featuring snippets of Ralph Daniels saxophone as well as recordings from gospel artist, Samsong.
Maria Bond is no stranger to the stage, performing throughout most of her life, whether that be on the television or within local choirs, she quickly realised she was on her journey to making music. Her TV credits include the likes of BBC, LBC, Sky and Sound Radio.
Her biggest musical influences come from classic gospel, jazz and soul musicians yet her sound today does not adhere to the strict boundaries of the genre. Contemporary notions of pop layered on top of her musical roots are what makes for a truly unique artist.
Maria boasts many creative attributes, with song-writing, producing and performing going hand in hand with her work as an author. One of Maria’s greatest achievements was graduating university with a BA Degree in Music and a Diploma in Drama.
Alongside the release of Testify, Maria Bond dropped the accompanying high quality visual onto You Tube. The video encompasses exactly what the lyrics in Testify are trying to convey and it has already racked up a huge 13,000 views.
Listen to Testify – Maria Bond from the 5th April on all major digital platforms.
