Hello! I am a singer/songwriter, and I play acoustic 12-string guitar, and keyboards. I have my own material, but I also do covers -- ranging from the singer/songwriters of the 70s -- Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, etc., to the vocal talents of today's popular artists like Colbie Caillet, and Sara Bareilles. On piano, I can also do American standards, like the songs of Gershwin and Cole Porter. And in between, I can do some Linda Rondstadt and Bonnie Raitt. Overall, I have a pretty eclectic mix of songs in a variety of styles. If you have particular songs you'd like to hear, I am a quick study and can probably sing/play just about anything; old, new, and originals too!
Price Range: $200 and up
Gig Length: 60 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Audience members should expect a sometimes soothing vocal experience, and sometimes a hand clapping, foot stomping one, depending upon the occasion.
Marie sings covers of artists such as Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and a little bit of country. She also performs her own original compositions.
Seasonally, Marie can do an evening of Christmas songs as well.
Marie is originally from North Attleboro, MA. She grew up taking dance, organ, clarinet, and voice lessons, and eventually added piano, and cello.She loved musical theater and became active in school drama productions and community theater, such as Attleboro Little Theater, and the Pawtucket Players. While a student at Elms College in Chicopee, MA, Marie began singing in local clubs and coffeehouses, performing her own songs and covers of singer/songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Janis Ian, and James Taylor. After college, Marie taught high school English for awhile, but eventually moved to Nashville, TN to pursue music. There, she performed at clubs such as the Fifth Quarter, Tempos, and The Nashville Palace. Eventually, an agent in Atlanta booked her for a 6 month gig in Okinawa, Japan, where she played piano and sang in the Lobby Lounge at the Ramada Renaissance Hotel. After that, she also performed in Sweden and Norway, and spent a summer playing at Casablanca's in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
Marie now lives back in her hometown of North Attleboro. She sings with the SOS BIgband of RI, and does solo performances, singing and playing piano and guitar. She continues to write songs, and has several cds available on iTunes, cdbaby, and amazon. She also can be heard on soundcloud.
