“…one of the best jazz singers working today.” – Jazz Journal
Although she didn’t begin her professional career until her early forties, vocalist René Marie has quickly climbed the ranks to become one of the most heralded singers on the scene today. Fiery and clever, Marie turned heads when she substituted new lyrics into “The Star-Spangled Banner” and continues her bold career with I Wanna Be Evil (With Love to Eartha Kitt), a tribute to the trailblazing vocalist/actress/writer, released on the Motema Music label. Marie’s remarkable range, independent streak, and powerful emotional resonance suit the material perfectly.
