ABOUT ME

 

I am a multi-media artist currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. Since age 12, I have been a performing professionally in musical theater, singing in gospel groups across the South East. Since 2012 I have been producing my own original music and managing myself. I have my hand in a little bit of everything. The commonality between mediums is always the goal to be genuine, sometimes sad and sometimes funny, but always expressing a true human experience of divinity

Please feel free to browse this site and explore what i’ve tried to create. Also feel free to reach out to me through the contact section below. If not always timely, I certainly do respond.


Thank you with Love!

-Andi Marie



Andi Marie’s music combines the grooves of 70's and 80's soft rock, intricate melodies, and free form phrasing of folk jazz along with introspective, self-narrative lyrics. Her stylized raspy alto has been compared to the sultry voices of Bonnie Raitt, Sade, and Karen Carpenter. While her musical influences span from Joni Mitchell to Donal Fagan, her lyrics are primarily influenced by her early Pentecostal upbringing: often playing on religious archetypes with metaphors that recognize the necessity of both light and dark.    

Originally from east Tennessee, Andi Marie’s roots are also evident in the themes and style of her music. She has a strong hometown presence, which has included performances at both the Tennessee Theater and the Bijou Theater.

Andi’s move to Nashville was quickly followed by her 2016 release of debut album “Years of the Horse.” It maturely captures the essence and complexities of Andi Marie’s inspiration in a cohesive way, which is often so difficult for young musicians. The EP has astounding depth, but is accessible; it’s intellectual, but catchy; you can dive equally into the sensory experience of the music and the esoteric experience of the art.

Since “Years of the Horse,” Andi has remained active in the Nashville music scene. She continues to play shows throughout the southeast, and prolifically, has a batch of new songs, which she plans to release in 2019.

 

WORDS

Sins of eve

 
 

In 1967, a beautiful child bore a 

beautiful child.

And the child was on her knees begging him please

take me to the dance.

but his heart was cold. He was growing

old before his time, jealous of her light.

She was radiant with grief, bearing the fruit 

of his seed.

 

Singing gospel music is an ineffective

birth control.

I’ve sacrificed my every intuition to those

who say they know.

 

We were taught to believe we bear

the sins of Eve.

I will spend my life on bruised knees,

bearing…the sins of Eve

 

In 1990 a greying woman bears a

girl child.

She speaks onto the child every blessing from the text 

that she can revive.

but the child is so sad, so stubborn, seeking salvation

in the backseat of a car...

and a mans affection will become the 

catalyst and the scar.

 

A woman’s body…her greatest blessing

greatest curse

The only redemption to be found is

putting it to verse.

 

I was taught to believe I bear

the sins of Eve.

I will spend my life on bruised knees,

bearing…the sins of Eve
