Marisa Ireland is no stranger to performing. In fact, she was the youngest paid singer/dancer to ever perform in Nashville, Tennessee for Gaylord Entertainment, having been featured in their "Country Christmas" and "Easter in Song and Story" shows at the tender age of four. As she continued to sing, dance and act in various venues in and around Nashville, she was noticed by a Hollywood director who convinced her parents to make the move to L.A. where she signed with Hervey-Grimes Talent Agency at the age of nine and began a successful career as a child actor in film, television and national commercials. All grown up now, Marisa has come full circle--a Tennessee girl who has returned home to her roots and first love: music. Her voice has been described by some in the industry as "country's version of Nora Jones." All would agree she brings a unique, innovated style to the table. From Bristol's Rhythm and Roots to Nashville's Billy Block Show to Gatlinburg's Tunes and Tales, Marisa is attracting attention at venues all across the South--so much so that NBC's "The Voice" recently selected her for a private, "fast-track" audition directly to its producers. Co-writing with her mother, Patty Parker Ireland, a long-time BMI songwriter, Marisa is also exploring various styles and genres as a writer in her own right, having even ventured into the realms of bossa nova and grunge. She says of her songwriting, "I try to cover a lot of bases and see what works!"
