About this Event

Finding encouragement performing open mics and garnering attention from a virtuosic YouTube cover of “Back to Black,” Marieme gradually began to realize her passion for music could be her career. That path revealed itself when Marieme went as far as her parents would allow – in her case, the University of Buffalo. There she studied journalism and communications – even winning a prestigious feature-writing internship in London – but everything changed when she heard Billie Holiday in a jazz history class. “I’m defiantly old school!,” she laughs. “I chose the right influences - Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn. But I also started studying the greats from all places, too – Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, I wanted to see what made them them.”

So energized, Marieme embraced bohemian life and new concepts of spirituality – often singing with DJs and becoming a regular performer at events in New York City. But her current persona truly evolved out of insights and epiphanies she received a year ago after traveling to Peru for a meditation ceremony. A fan of manga, animation, and cosplay as much as music, Marieme went on to create a fantastical performing persona whose chameleonic shifts suggest David Bowie. She even makes her own distinctively glam outfits herself – displaying a strong hand in individually creating the artist that will soon be revealed to the public in full flower. “This is a big leap,” she says. “It’s all been slowly marinating and cultivating, evolving into something complicated but exciting. Thankfully, now it’s cool to be multi-dimensional. I really imagine a better world in my songs, and I’m proof music can do that. Music changed my life, and I want to help it change other lives, too.”
