Lo Marie is a singer/songwriter from Madison, WI. She discovered her love of music and passion for singing at the age of five and began training in voice and piano shortly after. In a less technical fashion, she enriched her voice while simultaneously annoying her siblings by pretending to be an opera star during 5am showers. She ventured into a new medium at the age of fifteen and took her first strum on a jumbo Takamine acoustic guitar, which she still plays on occasion today.
Lo Marie graduated from Vanderbilt in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music in Voice & Economics. She attended Vanderbilt with the intention of studying opera, but soon after realized her adoration of jazz music. She began taking jazz guitar lessons from Jerry Kimbrough and studied under the great Billy Adair, director of jazz studies at Vanderbilt, and played in his professional big band, The Establishment. With a pool of original songs and producer Jerry Kimbrough, Lo Marie released her first EP, Beyond the Age of Reason, in August 2012 and gained an international following. She toured the US from New York to Los Angeles, and soon after, began building her repertoire and perfecting new works at shows in Nashville, Chicago, and Madison. After years of work, she finished her second EP, Solid Ground, in January of 2015, which was also produced by Kimbrough. Lo Marie will introduce her new compositions to the United States in an upcoming tour of the country.
