I Want to Be by Lonna Marie: Free Music Feature MP3
“I Want to Be” by Lonna Marie (yes, I didn’t interrupt that because it rhymed) is this weeks free feature for you. We were lucky enough to hear about this lady when she submitted her music to us a few weeks back, I was a fan from the get-go but now I’ve taken sometime to look through Lonna’s music I can see how privileged we were to have her. It was hard for me to pick a favourite, but this is one I’d put on repeat. I’d advise you to do the same.
Lonna Marie is a passionate singer songwriter who calls Los Angeles her home. She is originally from Hollywood, Florida, spent her early 20s hustling and thriving in New York city and now has landed on the West Coast, much to her surprise. She began her singer songwriting career in New York city where she established herself as an underground artist and took that a step further and created an organization called Underground Artists Live; a safe haven where artists could perform in a supportive and welcoming environment located in the heart of the LES. Before leaving NYC in 2012, she recorded a 7 song EP entitled “Oh no” which includes 7 original songs. Under the direction of Sean Gill (The Passengerz, Nightlife Recording Studios) she was able to explore her sound and take her music to the next level. She said goodbye to New York City with her final performance at The Studio at Webster Hall.
Lonna Marie is currently working on expanding her sound and is collaborating with some of the best producers around. She recently finished her single “Tonight” working with Will Golden (Gomez, Michelle Branch) which will be released early 2014. She also had the opportunity to work with NYC based producer Roger Greenawalt (The Pierces, Ben Kweller) on two singles “Better Day” (available on iTunes) and “Goodbye”, which will also be released early 2014.
“I don’t win awards, but I’ll win you over” is what she writes of herself on Twitter – this will change so soon. Download this now before it’s too late!
