Versatile Vocalist, Composer, Keyboardist
Marie is a Ukrainian-American musician currently residing in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. With a background as a classical vocalist, keyboardist, and composer, Marie utilizes her performance capabilities like a true interdisciplinary artist. "My music will never exist as just one genre or subject matter, that's why one moment you'll find me writing experimental music with extended techniques and you'll find me singing in a blues or funk band the next. I use my versatility as a musician to cultivate my love for the art and it is my greatest wish to share that art with as many people as possible." -Marie
