Lorraina Marro is authentically original in every area of creativity. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Lorraina Marro has made her mark as a classy, sophisticated and talented jazz vocalist, who is passionate about her music and committed to interpreting songs in her own style. Her remembrances of herself as a child was one who was shy and insecure, but knew she enjoyed singing; yet as maturity grew she found her wellspring of expression. Her inner voice kept pulling her toward the song in her heart as her dream came true - for in 2014, she gave herself the gift of song with her debut CD "You Must Believe In Spring." Lorraina is a very perceptive woman, she see's the common denominator in all of us from our life's experiences, from all the highs and lows of love evolving and ever-changing. As a seasoned lyricist, Marro put pen to paper for her new CD "Mixed Emotions." Her original songs are so telling of a woman who has loved, nurtured and experienced sincere heart tugs, triumphing over the loss of her marriage and finding herself beginning again with perseverance and confidence. One thing you will find in listening to these offerings is that a story is being told, one we can all relate to, man or woman, young and old. Love has many sides and what Lorraina shares on her new project is inspiring us to 'keep going and to keep your eye and heart on the prize before you." "She takes her fans on a personal journey, for all to capture the essence of the silver lining of her soul, from love, to the triangles of relationships and starting over, much ado that we all can relate to in our lives. Her original lyrics exude honest and pure expression that is ever present to her audience when she is on stage" says Jaijai Jackson, Owner of The Jazz Network Worldwide. The musicianship on the recording are: Ely Rise-piano and organ; John Meenk-guitar; Graham Ward-drums; Greg Sartiano-bass; in addition to: Warren McRae-bass, drums, percussion, additional keyboards, synthesizer and guitar; Steve McGuire-electric guitar, horns, additional percussion; and Chloe Love Smith-background vocals. Writers Christian Davis (aka Christian Edward Stalnecker), Warren McRae, Steve McGuire, Etienne "ATN" Stadwijk and Lorraina Marro. Marro credits such extraordinary singers such as Nancy Wilson, Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Della Reese, Dinah Washington, Dionne Warwick, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Frank Sinatra for inspiring her to develop and share her gift with the world. Marro takes to heart the influences that guided her to her own musical expression. In May of 2014 she celebrated her reverence to songstress Nancy Wilson with a tribute performance at The Catalina Bar & Grill in Los Angeles. Clifford Bell, Marro's musical director who has shared stages with many luminaries worldwide stated "Catalina - (Yes, Virginia- There is a Catalina) had stayed the whole night... something she literally almost never does and she LOVED the show... I have known Catalina for ten years and she is the last gal standing from the great Jazz Scene of the past, present and future... She has seen and heard everyone... " This performance was only the precursor of what was to show up for Lorraina in 2014. Not only did she complete her second recording, she has kept the momentum of her musical offerings in front of her fans. Lorraina has performed her own shows at multiple venues in Los Angeles, including Upstairs at Vitello's, The Catalina Jazz Club, Preston's, The House of Blues, Nola's LA, The M Bar, The Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, The Holly St. Bar & Grill, The Cinegrill, The Gardenia, The Bel Age Hotel, the Marriott Hotels, and Wyndham Hotels.
