“CREATE THE SHOW THAT MANAGEMENT/CLIENT WOULD LIKE TO SEE ON STAGE, PERFORM THE SONGS, IN WHICHEVER STYLE, IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER, GIVING JOY AND PLEASURE AT EVERY PERFORMANCE. THAT IS WHAT I DO”
Marilyn was born in Glasgow, Scotland, but lived her early childhood, in many places including, Elgin in the very north of Scotland, to Kuwait and various other destinations. Music was a part of her life from a very early age, singing and dancing 24/7 driving her elder Brother and Sister to distraction.
It was clear that music was her gift, so at the young age of 14 Marilyn had her first recording contract, this was sadly not developed at the time, for various reasons. Things changed and there was a move to Glasgow, still 14 yrs old Marilyn was now the lead singer of an alternative rock band ... gigging in and around Glasgow playing original songs, also performing a rock/jazz festival for Scottish Opera, whist still attending school…..
At the age of 18 …money had to be the new focus for her….So off She went to London…auditioned…and joined a high calibre 5 piece band, working for Haven….Fantastic band…and great times for years, whist also in the winter months gigging as a solo performer working in Orlando Florida, Hamamatsu Japan, Europe and the UK…during this time Marilyn still kept increasing her own written original songs in the hope of one day being able to produce them.
Marilyn has steadily been a working vocalist, worldwide… and In these last few years has entertained the likes of Paul McCartney, and PrinceAl-Waleed bin Talal in an exclusive resort in Cyprus.
Today….Marilyn is a working live performing vocalist, throughout the UK.
2015 will see Marilyn continue working on her original material, all genre's
