Hi, Felipa - here's what the All-Music Guide says about Maria Muldaur:
Singer Maria Muldaur was born Maria D'Amato in New York City (Sept 12, 1943). In the 1960s, she was a member of the New York-based Even Dozen Jug Band and later of the Boston-based Jim Kweskin Jug Band, which also included her husband, Geoff Muldaur, from whom she was divorced in 1972. She found solo success with the sultry single "Midnight at the Oasis," which was featured on her debut solo album, Maria Muldaur, in 1973, and she followed with several similar albums, though her commercial success declined. In the 1980s, Muldaur began performing as a Christian artist. She continues to work the club circuit successfully while issuing records like 1994's Meet Me at Midnite and 1996's Fanning the Flames. -- William Ruhlmann, All-Music Guide
