Jazz vocalist René Marie combines an incredible voice with fiery independence and originality; bucking trends with her unabashed spirit. Her most recent album pays tribute to another firebrand of jazz, Eartha Kitt. Marie’s style carefully merges together the worlds of jazz, blues, soul, folk, and gospel music, and her own theatrical ability makes each performance memorable.
“Vocalists like the one and only René Marie deserve to be measured for their originality in voice, spirit and song.”—All About Jazz
“Thanks to an incredible range of vocal ability, a powerful emotional resonance and strong independent streak, René Marie is the right artists to pull off an historic project on the multi-Grammy-nominated label Motéma Music with the release of I Wanna Be Evil (With Love to Eartha Kitt) that is an ode to the one of the most influential artsits ever to grace stage, screen and music studio.”—Pathfinder TravelBack to Concerts
