Raised in a small town in Massachusetts, Marissa Nadler fell in love with painting at a very young age. Music would arrive a little later but still in time to compete for Marissa's heart. She began writing her first songs and soon dived into the studio and released her first album in 2004: "Ballads of Living and Dying. Her second album, "The Saga of Mayflower May" was released a year later. These were albums completely stripped from production, in an acoustic format reduced to the bare essentials. To each one of them, Marissa seemed to add a little more to her art and in "Songs III: Bird on the Water", her third album, we can already hear some other elements, such as synthesizers, the harp and a series of new instruments. Marissa Nadler's sound definitely grew on "Little Hells", a 2009 album with a little more rock than the previous ones. When it comes to growth, in Marissa's case, we are not talking about unnecessary apparatus, but about the use of certain resources that are always at the srevice of what is most important: the songs. This US singer-songwriter kept her focus and continued releasing music: "Marissa Nadler" (2011), "July" (2014), "Strangers" (2016) and "For My Crimes" (2018) served to consolidate Marissa as one of the most interesting artists of the American indie scene, with a language of her own, where there's folk, dream pop and a myriad of other influences. Her latest work, "For My Crimes", meditates on the difficulty of bringing a relationship to fruition even when love is present. Marissa's voice and writing are on point and the Portuguese audience is lucky enough to be able to see her live at the next Super Bock in Stock.
