ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer, songwriter, and guitar swinging front woman of the trio billed under her name, Marlee Napurano brings a new sound to three old genres: pop, rock, and folk.

With a mixture of smooth, intimate ballads and driving rock licks,she washes her experiences over her audience.

Marlee's perceptive lyrics and her vocal style somewhere between Ani Defranco and Ella Fitzgerald have landed her in great rooms in Manhattan including the Elbow Room, the Bitter End, and Henrietta Hudson's, as well as national festivals like the Digital Club Festival, NY and Southern Decadence, New Orleans-- even at the White House for the 75th birthday of the Women's Bureau.

In their 30th Anniversary Issue, Interview Magazine cited Marlee as one of New York's notable new faces in the wake of the release of her self-produced record, "starting."

Besides making waves on the internet winning her the "Artist of the Week" slot on the former BillboardTalentNet.com and scoring her a spot on London's peoplesound.com, "starting" caught the attention of Oxygen Media which licensed the record for TV.

Her latest demo was produced by former "Spindoctors" guitarist Anthony Krizan and gave her the opportunity to hear pop pros like Krizan and keyboardist John Ginty (Jewel, the Bangles) play her music.

From the age of 5 Marlee was singing at community festivals, malls and nursing homes around her hometown at the Jersey Shore.

While earning a bachelors in English at Yale University, Marlee worked on her ear and her arranging with 4 years of a cappella singing.

"When I was 7, my parents gave me two things with strings: a tennis racket and a guitar"; the guitar soon became her best friend.

By high school, Marlee was playing with a few bands, covering everything from Rush to Carly Simon.

After Yale, she put together a female acoustic-duo with a rugby teammate (that's another story) and hit the local jam sessions.

At a Stanhope House jam in 1998, the house band approached Marlee about being her band on her original project; and the trio of Marlee, drummer Casey O'Connor, and bassist Steve Johnson was born.

Marlee is self-managed and promoted and is also the founder of NY's Orange Paw Publishing.

Marlee Napurano plays a Taylor 812 guitar live since she has retired her tennis racket.

Peppy to Mellow CD that makes you feel good deep within you
Good Listening grooves. Starting peppy with the first song and ending mellow. Just the type of cd We would chose first offhand to listen to make us feel good deep within. A typical feel good emotion that everyone needs after a bad day or just a hard day at work. It's the type of cd We would like to listen to when We're relaxing with a good book or sitting next to and spending quality time with a love one. This cd is to become one of our favorites along with those of Jann Arden's and Sarah Mclachlan's. We Highly recommend it.

Buy this CD.
There's not much to say about this CD except that it's completely amazing. Marlee and her music are totally original. I actually gave everyone I know a copy of it for Christmas last year. If I knew you, you'd already have gotten one for Christmas, but I'm guessing I don't, so you should buy a copy for yourself. It's that good.

*If You Were Stranded on a Deserted Island, You'd Bring This CD, I Swear.*
With a truly unique and totally eclectic blend of new-agey grooves and folk-rock, Marlee Napurano has formed a fresh style of music that is unparalleled in the industry today. Never before on a singular CD have I heard someone with such heart, soul, and a passion for what she or he does. Marlee starts off a little slow, I'll admit, but like a fine wine, the CD gets better and better as it goes on! Wait, did that make sense?! Oh, well, no matter. If you hear any of the tracks, you will understand what I mean. "Starting" as a whole simply ROCKS from start to finish. Her voice is strong and clear, and the guitar - oh, my - it's SO amazing. PICK THS CD UP!!!! I highly recommend it for anyone who has even the slightest amount of respect for independent, and fantastic, musicians.
