“Mari,” short for Maricarl is a singer-songwriter based in Torrance, California. She started writing songs as a hobby and found a passion for it later in her college years. After graduating, exploring different careers and traveling abroad, she knew she could not deny her love for crafting songs. After returning to California in January 2019 from working and traveling in Asia for 9 months, she decided to start pursuing her dream of becoming a performing songwriter.
Mari accompanies herself with an acoustic guitar and at times the ukulele. She has a purely singer-songwriter style with an indie/folk/pop vibe. Some of her musical inspirations and influences are Jason Mraz, James Bay, Emily King, Jon Foreman, Colony House, Stacie Orrico and Sara Bareilles to name a few.
She released her first single titled “Daydreaming" in January 2018 and her second single “Natural Desires” in June 2019.
Mari dreams of connecting with and creating friendships with as many people as she can through songs. She can be found playing open mics and gigs around Long Beach, Santa Monica, downtown Los Angeles and other places she is currently exploring.
