Inspired by her early departure from the Philipines at age nine, Mariannie has created a signature sound of her own: “All of the songs in the EP are intertwined with the emotions that surfaced when my family left and arrived in Canada. Loss, letting go, and realizations are the central themes of this EP. It was very difficult to write and release these songs because they are all very personal to me in some way.”
Some may say that the release of her debut EP may have been long overdue. Mariannie Ompoc, who began singing in church at the age of four penned her first song at 14. She has written alongside Mark Berry (Duran Duran, Billy Idol, I Mother Earth), collaborated with MeccaGodzilla (Cypress Hill,Sick Team), and has performed in numerous venues for over ten years. Pat Leyland of TMKO Media Lawyers (Nelly Furtado, Sum 41) has noted: “Her r&b influenced pop music naturally showcases her vocal ability. The soulfulness of her writing expresses itself in a unique manner”.
Her haunting lyrics, soulful vocals and catchy melodies are sure to stick in one’s ‘mind. “1993” clearly demonstrats her signature sound and songwriting abilities showing she is a real talent and a rising star.
