Marisa is a DIY, self managed artist. Violinist and vocalist writing songs and improvising solo, collaborating and with a band. Bremen Town Musician est. 2004
Bremen Town Musician began in 2004 when Marisa started recording songs in her bedroom on a brand new digital tascam pocket studio after graduating from uni with a Bachelor of Communication majoring in creative writing and popular music production. Bremen Town Musicians is the title of a story by the Grimm Brothers. Like Bible stories, fairytales are not really meant to be taken literally and like most fairytales they usually have a moral to them. This one is no exception. Marisa could have called this band "the complete guide to the sports psychology of the sad tale of echo and psyche". Though it didn't quite have the same ring.
There are so many interpretatons of the meaning of this story, as many as there are readers in fact. Marisa loves animals and related to their plight in the story after a car accident left her with a spinal injury when she was 17.
To her, the Bremen Town Musicians story is not a story about right and wrong. And the moral? Marisa thinks that the moral is, Don't Go Kicking People Out of Their Houses.
Marisa released her third Bremen Town Musiciian album 'Echo Dust Is All That's Left of Us' with an accompanying dvd of 12 videos to each song on the album through Brisbane based label Duskdarter in 2014
