  • Maria Yaremchuk was born in Chernivtsi on March 2, 1993. Her father, Nazariy Yaremchuk, was one of the most famous Ukrainian singers, known for the film and song “Chervona Ruta,” one of the unofficial anthems of Ukraine. He passed away from cancer when she was two years old.

    Maria, like her father, gained a passion for music at a young age.

    Maria auditioned for the Ukrainian edition of “The Voice” in 2012, achieving a placement as a finalist. After gaining notoriety in singing, she participated in the singing competition “New Wave-2012,” receiving the 3rd place.

    Since, Maria has gone on to release numerous singles in English, Ukrainian, and Russian languages.


  • Maria submitted her self-penned song “Imagine” for consideration in the national selection of Ukraine for Eurovision 2012. She was chosen as a finalist and went on to receive the 5th place.

    In 2013, Maria once again submitted a song for the national selection of Ukraine for Eurovision. She was again chosen as a finalist with the song “Tick-Tock,” which was also self-written. Maria won the hearts of the jury and public and was chosen as the winner and will represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2014.

    Since winning, her entry “Tick-Tock”  has been revamped, with a new instrumental and new lyrics by Sandra Bjurman.

    I believe that I’ve loved you

    Since the first time that I saw you

    Bells rang angels sang

    When the light of the night

    fell on us we knew

     

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

     

    We both knew that you were mine

    Now cover me, I’ll buy us time, time

     

    oh oh oh oh oh oh oh *2

     

    Oh wait for me I’m worth your while

    Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock

    My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock

    Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop

    My heart is like a clock you wind it with your love

    You wind and wind, it with your love

    Now I know it’s too hard to

    go tick tock without the glimpse of you

    If you cave in I break

    I keep losing my pace

    In this endless race

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

     

    They all know that you’re mine

    They can see we belong

    Shelter me, you’ll do fine

    Wait for me, I’ll buy us time

     

    Tick-tock, can you hear me go tick tock

    My heart is like a clock, I’m steady like a rock

    Sch don’t stop, kiss and kiss me till I drop

    My heart is like a clock, you wind it with your love
