Over the course of just a couple of singles Marie has sold out a string of headline London shows including Omeara, The Lexington, Camden Assembly and Ronnie Scott’s, while clocking up great critical support along the way. And now her forthcoming EP is set to be a pivotal point in what has already been an incredible journey for the singer.
The EP has been recorded with Neil Comber (Florence + The Machine, Glass Animals, Charlie XCX), Matt Colton (Arctic Monkeys, Christine and the Queens) and Simon Byrt (Pixx, Charlotte OC, Babeheaven). It is a record steeped in influences from across the world, be it her half-Lebanese heritage, songwriting road trips across the US or life within the UK.
Her recent single ‘California’ is an ode to escapism, captured in Marie’s intoxicating soulful vocals with a backing of jazz-influenced keys, percussion and guitars. With a sonic air of melancholy, the track emulates an uplifting optimism in its contrasting down-tempo beats.
It followed the release of ‘The Cage’, the first taste of the EP. It celebrates freedom and being content in one’s self, which is precisely where Marie is today as she comes armed with a record set to truly cement her name and affirm her artistic vision.
