"Marielle’s songs tap into young women and millennials’ romantic angst and euphoria"
This Delaware-based songwriter and former schoolteacher has opened for Jon McLaughlin, Ava Max, and Betty Who. She gave a TEDx talk about the importance of honesty in the songwriting process, and she walks the walk—Narrative Now said that "Marielle knows who she is, and that comes across so strongly in her music." Self-taught, the Rhode Island native began playing guitar at 16 and soon writing songs that strike chords with listeners everywhere. Her gift for storytelling is evident through her use of salient detail, raw emotion, and poignant word choice to describe moments "exactly as they feel." Since leaving her full-time teaching career to pursue a life committed to creating music, Marielle Kraft shows promise to follow artists like Julia Michaels and Maggie Rogers as she makes a growing impact in the indie pop scene.
