Marley Munroe announces herself as a force to be reckoned with each time she steps on stage. Whether on the main stage at the 2015 Long Beach Pride Festival, the Catalina Island Film Festival, or popular music venues such as New York City's Rockwood Music Hall or Los Angeles' The Mint – Marley’s voice is all at once powerfully dynamic, penetratingly sultry and gently vulnerable. The moment her song begins, you can't take your eyes off of her.
With her colossal vocal talent and outsized charisma - along with her natural songwriting ability, Marley transitions easily between contemporary-soulful and edgy alternative songs, without sacrificing an ounce of authenticity. She may sound like the second coming of Gladys Knight, but Marley refuses to be pigeonholed as a soul singer. My sound marries the different parts of who I am. I love artists from Jay-Z to Coldplay and from Alanis Morissette to David Bowie; but then I also listen to Billie Holiday and Donny Hathaway. My music brings those loves together. I don't want to be straight-up any one thing because I have so many different influences. I love big, epic, stadium songs; but, I don't know how to do rock or pop without the soul."
As a BMG/Chrysalis songwriter, Munroe's collaborators include some of the music industry's most prolific writers, including Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Justin Gray, Rob Kleiner, Mateo Laboriel, The Monsters, Chris Braide, Trevor Lawrence, London Police, The Heavyweights and Chris Seefried. In late 2014, Anastacia released a much-anticipated comeback album, which features two of Marley's songs: Staring At The Sun & I Don't Want To Be The One.
Marley is currently working on original material that she is preparing to share with the world. She continues to schedule live engagements into and throughout 2016.
