Imagine if Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty had a baby...Marissa is that baby. Small town girl; BIG VOICE! Marissa was born and raised in rural Illinois, but dreamed of living in California. She started singing at the age of 4, and performing live at the age of 15.
In 2006, she packed her life into her car and drove the Historic Route 66 to Los Angeles. Since then, she has performed at The Viper Room, The Key Club, Harvelle's, Fais Do-Do and across the world as a Principal Musician for Norwegian Cruise Lines.
Known for her captivating voice and engaging stage presence, fans remark that Marissa makes them feel like they're listening to a good friend in the privacy of their own living room. She makes audience members an interactive part of her shows and is even training to hold the world record for holding a note! (Current time is 38 seconds!)
Marissa earned the nickname "The Human Jukebox" on her cruises, as fans could yell out any song, and she would play it by heart. Want to join her Wolf Pack? All you have to do is show up and howl! Aaaawwwooooohh!
With the help of Kickstarter, Marissa was able to record her debut album, Things We Leave Behind. Her first album is an eclectic collection of original music, that takes the listener on a journey back in time...to the days when talent, powerful vocals, and intimate lyrics ruled the world. The listener can hear every facet of Marissa's personality, from heartbreak, to explicit humor, soulfulness and honesty. Things We Leave Behind is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and on CD at live shows.
Marissa is pleased to announce that she has signed with Blusoul Productions and is currently recording album #2! Aawwowooohhh!
