One of the most electrifying vocalists to hit the national scene in recent years, Marie has established herself as a fearless performer with astonishing vocal and emotional range. Fifteen years into an already stellar career, this Colorado based heroine has evolved into one of the greatest and most sensuous vocalists of our time. Marie’s original tunes put her in a class by herself, and her unique rearrangements of other songs shed new light on them and make them sound new and original.
