Hey guys, 

 

For those that don't know I'm an artist from London, born and raised! I'm also a 90s baby so you know I was born in the best music era evaaaa lool! Growing up in London has definitely exposed me to soo much different types of music, which I have come to love and embrace. With that being said, my family are Caribbean (Jamaican and Dominican to be exact) so that has had the greatest impact on my style and taste. With music being such an important part of Caribbean culture, from a very young age I fell in love with the drum and bass in reggae, dancehall and lovers rock. Along with the unforgettable melodies in R&B, and the heart throbbing vocals in jazz and soul. These timeless genres, as well as others, have become so natural to me and I try to merge them in my music today, whilst aspiring to create an entire style of my own. As a child (and still to this day) I was really inspired by amazing women like Erykah Badu, Missy Elliot, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Destiny's Child, Mary J. Blige and so much more. However my greatest inspiration will always come from God and my own personal journey. 

 

Thank you for taking the time to explore my world. Feel free to get in touch via email info@marikabastien.com.
