Marie White is a 23 year old girl surprisingly (by her own admission ) who enjoys making music, drinking coffee and writing about herself in the third person.
Reluctantly accepting many of the requests to ‘move along’, Marie started busking in Rye at the age of 15, performing soulful ballads, most of which were written during the early hours of the morning in her family home. 
Without venturing too far outside of Sussex, Marie has played a number of different shows in the past 8 years, a number not too far from the population of her hometown, Hastings. It would be fair to say that she has created quite a name for herself down by the sea! 
Describing herself as ‘an accidental musician’ she finds it hard to take a step away from her passion. She doesn’t want to write, she needs to write. Marie still remains true to “The 30 minute rule”… She states that if a song is not fully formed within an episode of Eastenders, then quite frankly it’s time to turn over to ITV2! 
Marie was the winner of ‘Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent 2019” competition and played numerous stages at last year’s festival. 
She recently signed to Decca Records and signed a publishing deal with Universal.
Marie has just supported Keane on their recent UK and Ireland tour.
She is looking forward to getting in the studio to record her eagerly anticipated first album.
