ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Marianne Flemming performs hippie chick music, exasperated mom blues, whatever happend to our planet laments, and music that honors the spirits that have paved the way before…In short,an all-around gal-guitar slinger/singer who loves to wail, weep and transcend. A 2006 MAMA (Madison,WI) nominee in the “Best Acoustic Song” and “Best Acoustic Artist” category, Marianne has a long history in the folk/troubadour tradition.

Marianne brings a decidedly left of center perspective to her songwriting. Described as “textured, expressive, sensual and zany,” she has many hues on her songwriting palette. Born and raised in South Florida, Marianne got the music bug early due to an influence from her father, a nightclub singer in the 40’s and 50’s. Upon graduating college, Marianne hit the road, and thru her travels she gathered the many influences that would become her unique style. Years spent performing in the Caribbean, busking in Europe, or jamming in a bar in Venezuela have all been synthesized into a musical style that lifts your soul and moves your feet.

After spending 10 years in Madison Wisconsin, Marianne added family and children to her most proudest of accomplishments. She recently finished grad school to become a special education teacher and now makes southwestern Washington her home.

“Folky-Blues with a Jazzy groove -songs that can make you laugh, songs that can make you cry -sometimes both in the same song!”

“The combination of her great lyrics and stellar musicianship makes this woman a cult legend.”
Rachel Bissex, Singer/Songwriter

Lloyd Cole

Beautiful Songwriting, Singing and Playing
A wonderful collection of songs from one of the best writers working today. Personal, human and lovely. Presented simply, with spare but effective aocompaniments, and "loose" singing that sounds very free but never gets sloppy. I'm buying copies for friends. You should hear this!

Pure and Simple
The journey of a songwriter weaves throughout a life and it's experiences to bring the rest of us something just like this. Marianne has led us back to our hearts, to the everyday character inside. The challenge is always to live and that challenge echo's with wonder in each song on this CD. Melodies linger like champagne bubbles in a glass, I am transported inside and then I start singing along. Marianne has always shown me that with enough faith, anything is possible. I take that journey with her in song with each cd so far ahead of it's time that by the time the rest of the world catches up (ie: indie rock) she is another 20 years older. Try to catch her now...
