Marisa is 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.

She spent formative years busking around the east coast of australia and playing music with friends. She started performing proffessionally not in Australia, but in Reykjavik, Iceland where she played in cafes, the esteemed Smekkleysa record store and a few bars and formed her first band - Bremen Town Musician and the Sunshine Boys.

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.

Marisa released her third Bremen Town Musician 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

-Shark Music-
Vertu Ephemera

The album that never was

Shark Music or 'vertu ephemera' is a body of Ramonesque miniatures  written, improvised and recorded on my phone over a two year timeframe. It was an 'album' that was never found, never released, never known where or if it would show up and never was seen. I may return to it whenever I choose.

Just keep moving. Like a shark. {*<*}
