With shades of old, water-colored soul, pop stood upside down, and smoky, jazz-infused grooves, Kari Marguerite is a up and coming songstress from Spokane, Washington.
Her playful sultry style is reminiscent of the the unabashed pop of Sara Barielles, the throwback soul of Amy Winehouse, and the come-hither stylings of Fiona Apple.
In October of 2009, Kari Marguerite began working on her debut album with Producer, Eddie Ramirez. The self titled LP is a 12 song journey through the fanastic and the everyday. "The jubilation of new love, the deep understanding of mature love, cautionary tales, and even my dorky sense of humor, " says Kari Marguerite, "I think these songs speak to the heart, and make you bop your head at the same time."
The debut album is set for release on Feb 19 2010. Kari Marguerite and her band, The Seventy-Six can be found performing in and around the local Spokane/CDA area and are planning tours "when the bleeping snow is gone," around the northwest United States.
