Lo Marie – Majestic Orchestration For Intimate Moments
Lo Marie floats from jazz vocals to urban grooves, through the smoothest guitar arrangements. She offers so such a delightful and intimate moment, jazzed up with neo-soul flavors.
Using metaphors to express personal experiences and sharing special and intimate instants with her listeners.
That’s how she released « Sea Monster », an original song that celebrates embracing all aspects of oneself, even the « ugly » parts that get pushed down to the depths of the sea.
A second tune, as stunning as soothing, « All the Love » captures the essence of loving someone unconditionally and trying to show someone that he or she is worthy of love.
The groove of this track amazes by its orchestration. The mighty harmonisation and the written rhyhtms are moving like impetuous and majestic waves (of love, strong like ocean flows)
Her debut EP, Beyond the Age of Reason(2012), produced by ace Nashville session man Jerry Kimbrough, earned Lo Marie an international following, enabling her to tour the US from New York to Los Angeles.
Her follow-up, Solid Ground(2015), also produced by Kimbrough, won the “Jazz Album of the Year at the 2015 MAMA Awards » (Madison Area Music Association Awards).
In 2018, Lo Marie won MAMA awards for “Best Female Vocalist,” “Best Jazz Performer,” and “Cover Song of the Year” for her duet, « I’ve Got A Crush On You, » with the legendary guitar player Cliff Frederiksen.
Lo Marie has blossomed as a confident artist with a focused vision. In this spirit, she opted to self-produce. “I feel ready to speak up for myself as an artist. I know who I am, and I’ve been fortunate to make a name for myself in my hometown. Stepping into the producer’s role has been the biggest thing for me this year, but, thankfully, I had the resources and a support system to make this all happen,” the Madison, Wisconsin-based artist shares.
