While Maria has already gained widespread recognition as one-half of the dream-pop duo Azure Ray, released four solo albums and an EP and collaborated with esteemed musicians including Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), Jim Eno (Spoon) and Moby, her prolific career has only scratched the surface of what the Alabama-based artist has to say.

Have you ever put a video on Vine?

I think the feeling is the same, but the house around the feeling looks a little different.

You would create a lot of your music while your new son was taking naps. Did you ever find yourself mistakenly writing kid's music?
