Lorraina Marro Lorraina Marro

Lorraina Marro is authentically original in every area of creativity. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Lorraina Marro has made her mark as a classy, sophisticated and talented jazz vocalist, who is passionate about her music and committed to interpreting songs in her own style. Her remembrances of herself as a child was one who was shy and insecure, but she knew she enjoyed singing. As maturity grew, she found her wellspring of expression. Her inner voice kept pulling her toward the song in her heart. In 2004, she gave herself the gift of song with her debut CD “You Must Believe In Spring,” encompassing songs from some of her favorite composers: Alan & Marilyn Bergman, Leslie Bricusse/Anthony Newley, Ann Hampton Callaway, George & Ira Gershwin, Lerner & Lowe and Maury Yeston.

Lorraina is a very perceptive woman, she see’s the common denominator in all of us from our life’s experiences, the highs and lows of love evolving and ever-changing. As a seasoned lyricist, Marro put pen to paper for her new CD “Mixed Emotions” released February 1, 2015. Her original songs are so telling of a woman who has loved, nurtured and experienced sincere heart tugs; and yet despite the heartaches, has persevered with confidence in beginning life anew. One thing you will find in listening to these offerings is that a story is being told, one we can all relate to, man or woman, young and old. Love has many sides and what Lorraina shares on her new project inspires us to “keep going and to keep your eye and heart on the prize before you.”

Vocalist Lorraina Marro looked elegant as she came on stage dressed in a long navy gown. She's an attractive woman who was at ease on stage and connected easily with the audience, which was filled with an enthusiastic crowd. It turned out to be a fun evening for everyone. “The Man Who Got Away” was a strong choice, as Marro turned the heat up for more drama. Likewise, “I Cried For You” was a full-blown, fast moving vehicle for everyone on stage to up the energy for a snappy ending. The audience was cheering and applauding Marro’s efforts

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
