“This recording was my third time around and it was a charm,” songstress Marion LoGuidice enthuses about her brand new "Tales From The Topside World." “I loved every minute of making this CD.” One listen to "Tales", however, reveals that not everything is hunky-dory in LoGuidice’s intimate musical visions of grief, beauty and forgiveness: “Tales" reflects the dark, light, and sacred parts of myself,” New York’s LoGuidice admits. “It’s a long river from the heart to the head and on this particular voyage, all the not-so beautiful parts of myself that would have
been cast into exile were welcomed - and I pulled up a chair for each one of them.”

One need not know the particulars of LoGuidice’s latest travails and triumphs to relate to "Tales", since we all share the same material existence replete with its
impermanence and transcendence. Marion, though, reflects our universal experiences back to us with a lyrical bent and musical inventiveness that is unprecedented.
LoGuidice delivers her incantory lyrics with both delicacy and power, couched in accessible rock-and folk- rooted musical beds. And just when her songs seem
like they are about to pop she often takes left turns into Grimm-dark musical woods and delivers magic, depth and soul, leaving one filled with hope and gratitude

A late bloomer herself, LoGuidice only started writing songs and making music eight years ago at the age of 40 with her self-released 2003 debut "Mother Wheel", followed by 2008’s "God’s House" (which featured a gut-wrenching duet with fan Cyndi Lauper, Marion returns the favor by appearing in several episodes of Cyndi’s new TV series
Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual, premiering January 12th on the WE Network).

Prior to "Mother Wheel" Marion hadn’t ever performed before a live audience; since then she has appeared at the SXSW Music Festival, performed numerous sold-out
performances at Manhattan venues like Joe’s Pub and Le Poisson Rouge among others.
Not surprisingly, her stage presence has flourished. “My songs are like lamps and when I perform, I plug them in,” she, yes, beams. “There’s a certain kind of channeling that I do when I step onstage - I unplug from this world and become completely unmasked” There is also an equally earthy quality to her voice that balances her mystic musings. “Marion is the kind of artist that only comes around once every decade or two” comments Jody Denberg, a thirty-year radio veteran who is currently an on-air music
programmer in Austin. “The worldview she relates in her music has changed mine for the better.” The songs on "Tales From The Topside World" have a
unique collaborative evolution. LoGuidice (pronounced “low-jew-dus”) recorded demos with her longtime musical partner Larry Saltzman (The Blue Nile, Carole King,
Simon and Garfunkel) and then booked a mere two days of bare-bones recording with her band. Additional production was then added by Miami’s Eve Nelson (Eva
Cassidy, Buster Poindexter, Chaka Khan) who succinctly embellished the song’s outlines, bringing out the strengths of each piece. “Each time I am moved to write another song, I feel as if I am leaving the world we live in and entering a
sacred place - a place where healing happens,” LoGuidice says. “Most importantly I want people to know that my songs are the by-product of a commitment I made:
that I would redirect my heart and mind into something that was life-giving instead of something that was destructive and stay devoted to that path.” Her latest album, Tales From The Topside World was recently re-released through EOne Distribution with additional bonus songs and a dvd. In the fall of 2012, Marion recorded an unreleased, newly discovered song written by the legendary Laura Nyro entitled “The Moon Song.”

The first time you hear Marion LoGuidice live, you’ll quickly realize that you’re in for a
very special evening.
