Marilyn DeFrange

Marilyn DeFrange, originally from Kent Ohio, has been singing and writing music since childhood.
Her music can best be described as a semi-acoustic eclectic mix with a rhythm and blues influence. Marilyn‘s voice keeps a connection with the audience that runs the gambit from a delicate whisper to a full blown bluesy wail.

“Marilyn DeFrange's vocals are eerily flawless, with a rounded, deep warmth. This kind of intimacy is almost unnerving. It offers a rare openness of heart and a lack of cynicism that is extremely hard to get away with these days. But somehow, Marilyn DeFrange does, right under your nose.” — Bill Broun, Alternative Press and Publishers Weekly

Growing up in a musical family of boys Marilyn learned to sing and play the guitar by ear. A natural talent, she began developing her songwriting skills at the age of ten. A prolific writer with a large catalog of music, she continues to connect to her audience with accessible themes and stories. She has recorded and or performed with Denis DeFrange, Rod Reisman, Fred Tribuzzo, (Baby Sirloin) Will Siegel, Paul Kemp, David Raitt, Spencer Brewer, David Hayes, Bonnie Raitt, Alex DeGrassi and Paul McCandless. Her voice and songwriting skills can be locally found on many of her peers’ CD’s in Northern California. She has produced four CD’s: Someone to Hold, Future, Something Good and most recently, Ocean of Emotion.

A collaboration with her brother, Denis DeFrange is up and coming towards a second CD. Marilyn has recently formed a new music production company with the goal of marketing her music for other artists and to be licensed for movies and television.
