I was 17 years old when I had my first real gig! I come form a very musical family and was blessed with my chops from birth by way of my mother being a singer in World War 2 USO shows and my dad's LOVE for music, dancing & playing trumpet (in his youth).
What are you looking for from Fandalism?
Inspiration, New Ideas, Other Singers,Gigs and so on.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Barbara Streisand, Melissa Manchester, Dusty Springfield, Nancy Wilson, Cher, Bette Midler, The Supremes... I just knew what I liked from a young age and knew that when I sang, I was at my happiest.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I have been singing since I was 17, too many bands to mention :) currently I perform with my husband, Whitney Phoenix, pianist. We are gearing up for my re-entry to the musical performance world. I had a 30+ year singing career from central & bay area California clubs to Hawaii, Portland, Las Vegas (every hotel that has been imploded!) and landed in Las Vegas permanently 20 years ago where I met my husband! He is the premiere pianist at the Bellagio entering his 15th year. www.WhitneyPhoenix.com my website is www.MarianneSingz.com
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
k.d. Lang.. she is my all time favorite singer. Her heart for singing the lyric on purpose is what draws me to her. That's how I sing, with heart and purpose.
