Lonna Marie is a singer songwriter from the East Coast now taking on LA. She's currently in the Top 10 singer-songwriters in Los Angeles on ReverbNation. She is LA-based, but tours frequently and regularly plays the Whisky a Go-Go and the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip.
Her music can be described as "loverly folk" and compared to the emotional turmoil of Amy Winehouse with the haunting melodies of The Beatles. Love and the many forms it can take fuels her songwriting--love of yourself, how it feels when love goes away, and what it feels like to finally find it.
Lonna Marie can perform as a solo act or with a full band.
Lonna Marie is an astonishing lady - truly gifted with an amazing voice and she sings from the heart. She blew me away when she sang a song that I had written for my daughter.

Intense Passion Energy and Beauty; a Versatile Talent
I have been fortunate enough to work with Lonna Marie several times, and can tell you that she is absolutely astounding. She recently performed for my sister's wedding and created a tribute video that far exceeded my expectations.
The biggest upside to working with Lonna is that she loves what she does, and it comes out in her performances. She is: tenacious, smart, professional, and delivers like a superstar.
Further, she has a strong enough personality to perform in a range of venues. I have worked with her on: marketing pieces, theme songs, weddings, and “attitude girl music” spots. She has also created original music for my audio books. Lonna is a fearless performer with a grace and sweetness that your guests will fall in love with.
She has the strength to perform live or produce amazing videos, but also maintains an elaborate feistiness that will make your audience feel connected to the performance, and more alive as a result of the energy from her music. There is always a moment during her performances where people look at one another and smile, because they know that this is one of those very enjoyable moments in life.
Long story short, you can't go wrong hiring Lonna Marie, unless you fail to book her before someone else does. -Irish.
The first impression is always "where do I know her from". Lonna Marie's voice and appearance compete for which is more attractive--often ending in a draw! Her music defines the term "earworm"...once you hear it, it will be stuck in there for days--incredibly catching songs and a voice unlike any other.
