PROFILE ON ...
2007 - Marnie Hunter
I love singing!
An eclectic mix of pop, jazz, blues and swing, sometimes soulful sometimes loud but always passionate.
have been your main musical influences ?
I have been influenced by a wide range of true stars over the years from Eva Cassidy to Ella Fitzgerald, from Nina Simone to Katie Melua. All have had a definate influence on what I choose to sing although I don't try to sound like any of them...
greatest musical moment?
Hearing the first take of my first CD in the recording studio...
I am already starting to realise a big part of my musical dream... the recognition I have received for my music and the doors it has opened for me...
best recent listen?
Madeline Peyroux's and Amy Winehouse's new albums... both amazing singers with amazing CD's
thoughts about the Kapiti Live Music Club?
We have only had limited contact with the club and it's members. What events we have supported we have generally enjoyed, in particular the Blind Date experience... a real chance for people like me who don't know the right "clique" to get to work with other serious musicians without all of the tension.
