Latin Sensation Marre Humbly Pleases

October 1, 2010 · Print This Article

When Latin pop sensation Marre walked off the stage last week in Bogota, Colombia you would have thought she was walking out of a routine stop at a Starbucks Coffeehouse.

Having just performed for over 75,000 people Marre was still calm, collected and energetic enough to strut off the stage. Leaving the same concert plaza that hosted Metallica and Coldplay earlier this year, Marre appeared as humble as a member of her audience.

Such however, is product of the seemingly unstoppable, rapid wave of excitement that has lifted this 19-year-old from relative obscurity to becoming a nonstop superstar in just over two years.  Her unique blend of Latin pop/rock with dark and deep lyrics has earned Marre the praise of huge names such as Grammy winner Juanes. The critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Natalie Merchant even invited Marre to be a special guest during her just finalized Leave Your Sleep Tour.

Writing songs before many of us started playing with toys; this so-called “rapid rise“ from Marre that has taken Latin America by storm has been a long time coming. Folk stories abound of this young rocker performing to her Barbie collection in her living room and writing tunes about fruits and vegetables before even reaching grade school.  It was however during her teenage years when this singer/songwriter learned to channel emotions of love, despair and hope into her uniquely mature songs, which completely separate her from others at her young age. A perfect example is her latest charting single Mas y Mas (More and More), which deals with the liberating experience of breaking free from a poisonous relationship.

After two years of non-stop touring throughout Latin America and constant airplay on the Latin MTV, Vh1 and HTV platforms, Marre is now preparing to release her sophomore album. With the Latin market conquered, expect North America to get plenty of Marre with the singer´s second effort projected to come out sometime in 2011.

For now Marre seems content with everything coming her way and is enjoying the ride. Minutes after walking out of the Bogota concert, she smiled, briefly closed her eyes to take it all in, and without hesitation walked directly to those she respects and loves so much: her fans.

    I think I’m already a fan after reading this article and viewing the video. Thanks for such a great “open window” view of this artist. Amazing that she’s already performed in front of 75,000 people and that fellow artists are taking her under their wing at such a young age. She’s got an incredibly sultry voice which helps convey her mature lyrics to her audience. Looking forward to her North American tour!

    It’s always great to be introduced to fresh Latin talent.

    I’m not fluent in Spanish, so though I don’t understand it, if I the feeling comes across – she is doing her job!

    It’s nice to read about someone who doesn’t let fame go to their head and remains grounded, particularly when they are so young. I have the highest respect for artists who aren’t afraid to go out and meet their fans before or after a show. Best of luck to Marre.

    Marre is an example to follow.

    Incredible to think that this singer is just 19 years old and has such a fresh voice.

    From what I have heard, her lyrics are both simple, yet deep, so its easy to see how so many youngsters fall in love with her music.

    I also admire how its obvious that Marre has always known music was her way of life, and has prepared herself for the challenges of pursuing a career in the music industry. This while retaining family values and charm.

    Good piece.
