Maria Chiara Argirò

Artist, Pianist, Synth player, Composer & Producer

Maria Chiara Argirò is a London-based artist, pianist, synth player, composer and producer. The Italian-born artist is known for her dramatic atmospheric jazz, but is venturing into new territories incorporating electronic soundscapes and vocals.

Maria Chiara Argirò (pronounced ma-REE-ah key-AH-rah r-gee-ROW) has been quietly weaving her way around the UK jazz, classical and electronic worlds since she moved to London from Rome 11 years ago. A pianist from the age of nine and a key player in the capital’s multi-national jazz scene, she’s lent her skills to indie band These New Puritans, lush jazz troupe Kinkajous and, more recently, collaborations with Jamie Leeming – their 2020 album Flow was nominated for one of the albums of the year in the Jazz Revelations Awards and was the Guardian’s jazz album of the month – and beat-driven duo Moonfish.

Freshly signed to Innovative Leisure, Maria Chiara Argirò marks herself out as an exciting new name in electronic, jazz-fusion with her new album 'Forest City'. Maria recorded and self-produced the album between her bedroom and studio with the help of her longtime collaborators and electronic producers,  In a sleeping mood and mixing engineer Alex Killpartrick. And, crucially, she is singing for the first time, too – her airy, otherworldly vocals on 'Blossom' and  'Clouds' especially resemble Emiliana Torrini or a singer in a smoky, late-night club, alone under the spotlight on the stage.

Forest City has graced Italian end of year polls, with radio support from BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, KCRW, KEXP, RAI 2, FiP, and has been featured in Vogue, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, The Fader and Pitchfork. With fans like Four-Tet, as well as album track Greenarp being featured on Netflix series Elite, Maria had an amazing 2022 and there is only more to come.
