MarissaAnn is a multi talented sixteen (16) year old singer/songwriter from Ronkonkoma, Long Island, New York. Having survived a rare liver disease that resulted in a liver transplant from her dad at six (6) months old, she truly believes that she can communicate strong messages of hope and healing through her music.
Beginning with voice lessons at age 6, then various local gigs and school plays, through her most recent experience on NBC TV’s The Voice, MarissaAnn is just starting to share her talents with the world.
What makes MarissaAnn’s vocal talents absolutely unique is her ability to effortlessly jump octaves and execute runs --not in the interest of simply showcasing her technical prowess, but rather her voice as uniquely expressive for any lyric/melody. What sets her apart as a songwriter is her ability to create a profoundly moving experience for the listener through her lyrics.
MarissaAnn is currently in the studio, writing and recording original songs with both local and West Coast based collaborators and producers.
