This major publishing deal with TelePictures Music© was preceded by Marianne winning the 2007 Grand Prize for the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, with her song “This World”. She was also the winner of the annual Lennon Award. Marianne was also the winner of the 2009 - 100% Music Songwriting Contest, based in France. As a result, EMI Publishing awarded Marianne a publishing contract for her song “This World”.
Marianne also placed as a finalist in four other international songwriting competitions with songs from her debut album “From the Water”. Since winning, she has received extensive national and international FM and internet radio play from the debut album.
Marianne’s debut album, “From the Water”, showcased her talents as a singer and songwriter and demonstrated her incisive lyrics, gorgeous melodies and luminous voice. As a result, she is currently working in a highly anticipated new album on the way in early spring 2009.
Marianne currently is playing at major casino resorts regionally, such as the IP Casino Resort Spa with her band- Marianne and the République.
