Raymond & Maria is a Swedish pop group. It was started in 2002 by the male members of the band: Johan, Staffan, Olle and Per. As singers they found Maria and her sister Camilla. The first single from the band was Ingen vill veta var du köpt din tröja (No One Notices Your Brand New T-shirt) in 2004. The song was number one in the Swedish charts for several weeks.

The band produced a stir when they broke through with their anti-commercial messages. The music is simple with only drums, guitar and vocals. As the band is quite concerned with their privacy, they have opted to not disclose the band members' last names. Nonetheless it has emerged that Johan Kindblom is the author of the lyrics.

The name comes from a swinging club in Stockholm.
