When Marie’s father passed away in 2010 she closed off to the world until it was as if her father spoke to her from spirit - through a photograph. He was playing drums, smiling alongside of his band. Life sparked again, and the depth of loss, hope and ultimate salvation from crippling grief inspired her lyrics and music, and anyone that is honoured to hear Marie’s songs can truly feel the soul and the depth of her journey.
Ma Rie - "HERE I AM "
I am a 26 year old young woman of samoan decent currently living in Cannons Creek Porirua Wellington New Zealand.
I have been singing since i was 3 and started writting songs and playing piano since i joined the Holy Family Parish Choir in 1990
My main genre is Reggae although I love everything from Rock to Jazz to Hip hop to Rap to Country to Rnb i basically love anything with a real good groove ultimate lyrics and a good bass line!
I have been through the good and the bad in my life time and have seen the lowest of the lows and am only now starting to see the highest of the high's.
My parents who are my life soul and inspiration of my music. Esp my father. My mom who is a nurse would work nights to support a family of 11 and then come home during the day to not sleep much at all and then take care of my father who suffered from three strokes and was wheel chair bound for 17 years .He passed away in 2010 and my life took a turn for the worst. i gave up on life love friends family and most of all the one thing i loved most in life my MUSIC.
It wasnt till a few weeks ago when i finally got my determination and love for the music back.it had to take me looking at a photo of my dads band to realize. It was as almost as though he was speaking to me through his smile while he held his drumsticks and his hair looking so good you could almost say he looked like Elvis!
So four weeks on im writting lyrics as if i was simply telling my life story and coming up with the meanest vocals lines to die for !
I maybe young but i am determined committed talented funny beautiful and the list goes on hehe
Ready and waiting to show the world that its my time and that i have what it take to make it in the music industry

"My music is about the people for the people"
Marie began singing at 3 years of age and when she joined the Holy Family Parish Choir at the age of 6, she started writing songs and playing the piano. With love of everything from Rock through to Hiphop, from Jazz to Rap and Country to RnB, Marie’s love of a real groove, ultimate lyrics and great bass line flowed naturally in choosing Reggae as her main genre.
Her parents remain her life, soul and inspiration of her music.
