Biography

Raised in Germany Marianne had extensive musical training all through highschool. She studied the violin privately since she was 10 years old. She then started playing guitar and had private classical vocal training with a member of the Munich Opera Company.

"While experimenting with different bands, I started writing songs and was particularly influenced by Irish Folk & Rock as well as American Blues music. I must have watched the "Blues Brothers" 50 million times.

"The most fascinating part of writing music for me is to take an experience from my own life and let the creative process take over. Then getting together with producer/musician Joe Clapp in the studio the songs take on their own life".

Marianne performed for different occasions, at corporate functions and spiritual events in Austria, Switzerland, India and Germany. In 1999 Marianne was invited to perform at the Zurich Peace Festival. "It was there that I realized writing music 'for music' was important to me, expressing emotions not opinions".

Marianne was invited to sing on a meditation video "Khuda" that has been shown in movie theatres throughout India and in over 200 meditation centers around the world. "I used the lyrics of a famous Indian Urdu poet Darshan Singh and wrote the music to 'Restlessness of the Heart', "as I could relate to the emotions of that poem".

Marianne then released her first full length CD "Moments". Three songs "Postcard", "The River" and "Going Home" made it in the Top 100 Commercial Radio Chart.
"Golden Rings" from her latest CD "Inspiration" has also reached the top 100.

"I'm honored to be part of the music community in the Boston area".
