No Expiration Date
Long Island singer/songwriter and BMI artist, Marie DelaCruz, has been writing songs for most of her life. But it wasn't until she went through a difficult divorce several years ago, that DelaCruz finally gained the courage to buy herself an electric acoustic guitar and thrust herself into her true passion of writing original songs about love and loss, and all the emotions that go with it. Being the passionate Latina that she is, DelaCruz felt compelled to pursue her dream and perform her songs whenever and wherever she could. Whether playing solo in a local coffee house with her Martin guitar or with her full band in a bigger venue, this versatile musician tapped into her talent and came to the realization that this was definitely what she needed to do with her life. Her desire to celebrate her love of music with others led her to record and release her debut album on the indie label, Crazy Daisy Music. Appropriately titled, No Expiration Date, this album of eleven originals is a testament to DelaCruz's keen ability to write music and songs that matter. As revealed on songs like 'Artist on the Album,' which is a true story about her absentee father (also a musician) or the touching ballads, 'It Takes Time,' or 'Say Goodbye,' which she wrote after her divorce, DelaCruz draws from her own personal experiences to write songs that others who have 'loved and lost' can easily relate too. At the same time, DelaCruz, who considers herself a 'hopeful romantic,' also uncovers a rainbow of strength through her uptempo tunes like 'Thankful' and 'Maybe,' and her high energy songs like 'It Ain't Love' and 'Movin' On.' While in the recording studio, DelaCruz was joined by a variety of talented musicians, including the incredible sax player, Mario Cruz, who has toured with many notable artists like Bruce Springsteen, and also features the amazing drummer, Steve Haas, who has recorded and performed with Billy Joel, Suzanne Vega, George Benson and more. Without a doubt, No Expiration Date, proves that DelaCruz is on the right musical track to touch as many hearts as possible.
