Biography

When her boyfriend categorically refused to teach her to play guitar, Marnie Mains broke up with him & taught herself. Actually, she stole his guitar first and then broke up with him. She still has it. He’s long gone and she's going world wide. Now available overseas, MM's music is on the move. Marnie’s stomping ground is the human condition and it should come as no surprise that she is adamantly honest, a little ironic and certainly complex. And while her music is angelic, soft and captivating, Marnie’s lyrics are not so anodyne. They’re witty, thought provoking and true, and she is certainly no stranger to the double-entendre Having attracted audiences from London, England to Las Vegas, Nevada, Mexico and Japan, Marnie has toured predominantly alone with that pilfered guitar. Gracing stages such as the Opera House, the El Macombo, and the Reverb, she’s been tearing it up in the Canadian music scene. Tokyo's new sweetheart, this crimson haired songstress can be seen and heard with her latest release hot off the press in Japan. Opening up for acts including Swollen Members, Alexisonfire, Glass Tiger, the Daughters, and the Corb Lund Band, this native Vancouverite has also enjoyed national television exposure on CBC's Music Dream, where she beat out 1000 other applicants to secure the time slot. Recently recording with talent from the Mars Volta, she has been an entire choir of vocals behind Devon Townsend and Strapping Young Lad. Her latest EP she independently produced with Daniel Powter's producer, Jeff Dawson. Marnie recently came back from Las Vegas where she played The Palapa Lounge at the Palms, The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel & Brendan's Pub at The Orleans. At The Joint, swishy industry types fell for her like the rest of us. Justin Timberlake's producer called her "mesmerizing", "profound" and a "beautiful singer". We already knew that though, didn’t we? "Her debut full-length is the work of a confident, experienced artist who, along with her producers, is willing to take chances." Shawn Connor- the Georgia Straight "Evidently a lover of words, the White Rock native paints a lot of pictures..."Beautiful on the Inside" is typical of her smart and sassy style" John P. McLaughlin - the Province
