With a smooth and classy sound, Lonna Marie is a hot prospect at the moment in her native USA and it won’t be long before the same goes on these shores. An independent musician who still manages to create a high standard recorded sound, this is a songwriter who is going places.
Capitalising on the current global trend for folk, country and all kinds of roots music, Lonna Marie is accessible without being cheesy, and has lyrics that wash over you first listen and become more meaningful and smart each listen thereafter.
On the surface her new EP is simply a collection of nice melodies and gentle instrumentation. But dig a little deeper and the themes and ideas in the lyrics are more layered than the genre is often given credit for.
