This is one girl you have to hear – and want to know more about. Marie, with a voice set somewhere between Melissa Etheridge and Debby Davies (and a guitar style to match) and mix in a whole lot of grit from Janice Joplin, and you have MAK. Although she hails from everywhere and nowhere, its apparent that some of the Texas blues got into her skin pretty good. Not relying on guitar pyrotechnics, she takes blues notes hangs on them, squeezes them, bends them and makes them cry. Her 12 string guitar is powerful and smooth. She can combine the best of Texas blues with a grit and vocal sensibility that can tug at the heart-strings. If you only get out once a month, you need to have a MAK attack.

Bio

Marie (Anne Kelton, thus the MAK Attak!) aka, (RedRaven) was Born to make music! Born to dance! I'm a daughter of the motor city, and have lived about everywhere, from Detroit, to Las Vegas and back again. Music is my life, my body and my soul, its everything that I am. I'm also a classically trained dancer (ballet). I'm strongly influenced by other artists who put their music where their heart is.... Melissa Etheridge, Indigo Girls, Sarah McLachlan to name but three. I don't sing shallow songs, and I tend to wear my heart on my lyrics, be it pissed off, happy, crying, its all there as a catharsis for me, and I hope some members of my audience. Iv'e played one instrument or another since about age 6 (piano first, sitting on the bench with my grandfather), Iv'e written music since I was about 13 (horrible and angst ridden).... Had my own blues band, but prefer to go it alone. Member of ASCAP and NARAS (Grammy organization)
