In the summer of 2016, Marie released her first EP "Summer Sweetness" with 5 of her original songs.
Summer Sweetness, the title track, was created during Marie's first studio session with Imperceptible Arts. Inspired by the good weather, this jazzy summer groove emerged.
Seasonal Love is a song about always being there for the people you love, even when they are on the verge of leaving you. No matter what the weather or season, Marie sings "I'll be there".
Life Blues is a sensitive and painful song. Despite the lyrics being very personal, they address universal themes such as death, family, and love.
My Man is about the different stages relationships undergo. By integrating raw with pure, Marie delivers an honest and vulnerable love song.
Mon Ombre is a very original jazzy track, in which Marie combines singing and poetry delivered in English, French and Italian. This ode to different kinds of love combines sarod and saxophone to create a new, undefined style, challenging the artists involved as well as the listeners.
