After a year of Parachute's Artist Development Programme, forming a band, and gigging here and there, Marianne Wren and her beautiful band have gained a following from her string of live shows. The style of Marianne's music cannot be described by the constraints of vocabulary, better put by her friends as a special blend of connection, soul, groove and feel.
