As a young girl she left her home to discover the great wide world.
She lived a few years in Barcelona before she settled in Berlin. After performing in the streets she got the opportunity to play in famous german venues like Kulturbrauerei and Huxley´s Neue Welt (Berlin) or Palmengarten (Frankfurt am Main) as well as festivals like “Classic Open Leipzig” or “Jazz- und Bluesfestival Bamberg”
Her music has taken her through Europe and North Africa.
“I´m always on the move and tell my stories through my music.”
At the beginning of 2016 she started a crowdfunding campaign to finance her first record.
Finally Marie and the band recorded their debut EP “All We´ve Got” in London together with music producer Charles “Chicky” Reeves who has already worked with artists like Ray Charles, James Brown, Prince and The Rolling Stones. The EP was released in November 2016.
