New Zealand born songstress Jan-Marie is a gifted singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Melbourne, Australia. Jan-Marie’s unique indie music style is a blend of funky folk rock, smooth roots and soul fusion with electro pop flavours to keep the groove moving along.
Jan-Marie’s raw talent as a musician has evolved from an early age as a budding piano and guitar player with her main influences coming from the depths of her musical family roots going back many generations. Performing in school concerts as a solo musician and band member, growing up singing and playing guitar with other musos as much as possible, living in New Zealand was inspiring and motivating for Jan-Marie but curiosity snuck up and next thing she was on a plane to Australia.
Now the chic urban songstress is offering you her latest and 3rd album titled “Travel This Road” which is due for release in 2013. Recorded in Melbourne, Australia, Jan-Marie called on the expertise of her musical friends to work on this 10 track electro-acoustic pop album with her.
Bradley Noy keeps the beat alive with his freestyle funky drumming and Sharmila Periakarpan fused the whole mix together with her melodic and sassy flute, ambient violin and beautiful vocal harmonies.
On the album Jan-Marie has created textured layers of orchestral synths, chunky basslines and catchy melodies to support meaningful songs. Jan-Marie’s sultry vocals compliment the host of instruments played by Jan-Marie on this album including guitar, keys, bass guitar and percussion.
Performing solo just as comfortably as with her band, Jan-Marie tells a story with every song which will touch you deeply on a soul level. Jan-Marie has played many festivals gigs, venues and events and has a natural ability to captivate her audience by making them feel like they are in the moment with her while exploring compelling themes of love, life and lessons learned along the journey.
