Maryann, Northern California’s freshest female vocalist, is hitting the scene hard in 2013. With a sound reminiscent of 90’s R&B stars such as Aaliyah or Janet Jackson, she draws on these influences, yet has a voice and style all her own. Growing up around all genres of music, Maryann has channeled that exposure into a versatile style. She is creating music that combines Soul, R&B, Pop, Electronic, and Hip-Hop, to find a sound that will appeal to the masses. Not only has Maryann been writing and performing her own songs, but she’s also been writing for other artists. She has been featured on a number of hip-hop projects, such as The CUF’s “Caviar Vol. 1”, and the Lost Tribe “Sophie” album on a song with Talib Kweli.
Teaming up with producer N8 the Gr8, the two have been experimenting over the past few years and have come up with a sound quite unique. The first release from the duo is Maryann’s solo record “Timing is Everything” (Available Now). The record is a mix of Hip-Hop, Pop, R&B and Electronic influence. The album features artists like Eligh (Living Legends) and Onry Ozzborn (Greyskull), and sure to have something for every taste. The duo is currently working on a follow up project to “Timing is Everything” titled “Futuristic Always” expected mid 2013. Current singles (with accompanying videos) from the project include “Shades of Grey”, “I Could Give A”, “Make or Break Us” and “More Then Lover Friends” ft. Chuuwee. This album will also feature a few surprise guests, Devin the Dude, Guilty Simpson and Chuuwee being the first named. With their experimental nature, expect a few surprises! Be on the lookout for this emerging talent, with her wide range of abilities she has the potential be the start of a new trend in R&B music.
