.Giveaway: René Marie


Jazz vocalist René Marie is a world-class singer in the style of her heroes, Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington. But Marie’s craft doesn’t begin and end with jazz. She stretches across genre divides and pulls from folk, classical, blues, country, pop and more to create a vivid musical tapestry. Marie’s latest offering, the Grammy-nominated 2016 Sound of Red, features all-original material and sees the artist’s compositional and songwriting skills on display. The album adds a new dimension to Marie’s already-impressive resume and further establishes her as one of the great contemporary jazz vocalists.
