""A silky jazz/acoustic, poetic voice""

(review of THE MORTAL MOON)
A silky jazz/acoustic voice that sings about love, politics and the environment in sophisticated arrangements that are full of complex musical intricacies. The Mortal Moon is an intelligent release, on the cutting edge of the adult acoustic alternative music spectrum well worth your full and undivided attention. - fao Casa Gazette

""Marienne Kreitlow is a terrific singer/songwriter...""

(review of THE MORTAL MOON) Marienne Kreitlow is a terrific singer/songwriter with a gift for writing interesting and inspiring songs. Her arrangements are full, yet uncluttered. Marienne, who has a strong and beautiful clear voice, also plays keyboards, flute and guitar. Her melodies are original and beautiful and marry brilliantly with the lyrics, conjuring up vivid imagery and mood.
(review of HOW BRIGHTLY BEAMS) Marienne's strong clear voice can be both expressively breathy and powerful. This album has fourteen refeshingly unusual, yet accessible tracks. - Tradition Magazine, UK

""An unassuming gem.""

(Review of WRAPPED AROUND THE SUN) - The Boston Globe


GARLIC & OTHER FORCES OF NATURE: Climb on board the magical mystery farm tour. Like bits of The Roaches, Trout Fishing In America, Bob Wills, & The Mediaeval Babes.
BEAUTIFUL ILLUSION: Spins winter stories with timeless Christmas songs and ethereal soundscapes for trancelike listening.
COME BACK TO THE GARDEN: Spirituality & the sacredness of life, with Jerry Ford.
HOW BRIGHTLY BEAMS: Songs that bridge the gap between religions, expressing the wonder of a creation which requires our total response.
THE MORTAL MOON:Beguiling songs, both personal and universal, covering a wide range of musical styles (reggae/ska, jazz, afro/cuban, and classically oriented keyboards) with a strong folk foundation.
"Joyfully sensuous!" - Dirty Linen
HEARTROOM - Instrumental new age. "Warm as a fire in the night." - Transnational Perspectives
WRAPPED AROUND THE SUN: Mariénne's 1st release! "An unassuming gem." - Boston Globe



A songwriter, poet, librettist, performer and recording artist, Mariénne is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. As a long time solo performing artist she is dynamic and provocative. Her diverse background brings a refreshing quality to her writing for listening rooms, theatre and the church.

Mariénne returned to her home in Minnesota in 2002, where she is fourth generation on the family farm. Her compositions often reflect this strong sense of place and commitment to honoring the land.

‘My intent as an artist is to open myself and my audience through authentic expression. My responsibility is to create an experience that reaches many different levels of feeling and visioning to ultimately uplift and transform. I aim to inspire and encourage expression in others as a means of accessing passion, personal and spiritual fulfillment, and meaningful community.’
