About Marie Keane

This eclectic mix of folk blues rock is infused with subtle classical and traditional undertones. It leads the soul to move within the imagination.
Her voice is a piped piper to the poetry of her words. Although sometimes melancholy permeates the tone it can thrust the listener to a plain of optimism. Its’illustration serves to carry hope.
