Songwriters in the Round: Kara Fink, Marye Lobb and Sarah De Valliere


“Like many songwriters, Marye Lobb composed melodies in her carseat – singing before she could talk. She carried a deep love for music with her since infancy, but it wasn’t until she studied abroad in the south of Chile that she realized music was her calling. After singing and studying with the local musicians of Patagonia, learning their folk music, hearing the lyrics and melodies of Violeta Parra and Victoria Jara, and the contagious rhythms of the Cueca, Tango, and Bossa Nova, Marye was hooked – and there was nowhere to go but inside the beautiful home she found in song. Marye Lobb’s songs are ballad-heavy easy listening , with hints of folk, new age, Latin, and jazz. She counts as her biggest influences Ella Fitzgerald, Regina Spektor, and Astor Piazzolla, among others. Her highly polished vocals carry the lush and soothing melodies of her devastating and equally uplifting stories to parts of your heart that you never knew existed. Her basic verse/chorus/bridge structure and acoustic instrumentation leave space for you to listen to her Leonard Cohen-like poetry. Marye is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and has performed at the The Knitting Factory, Stonewall Inn, The Birchmere, The Bitter End, and other venues both large and small across the US, in Mexico, South America, and Europe. She has opened for Yo Yo Ma, David Bromberg Big Band and others, and her music has been licensed for numerous projects around the world. Most importantly, Marye has found how to use music as a way to feel peace within, and her mission is to help others find that inner peace through music every day. She is currently exploring how to widely share the health benefits of music and creativity for all while she records and produces her 4th album in her new home studio. ”.
