Driven to make music professionally only after Katrina destroyed her home, Marianne Allison, from Ocean Springs, Mississippi, is one good thing that came out of the Katrina catastrophe. A former accountant, who sat down with her piano and pursued her musical passion, Marianne cut her first CD, From the Water in late 2006. She is now a rising star on the Indie music scene. Her song, This World won the 2007 International John Lennon Song Writing Competition. All of her songs are a breath of fresh air. Her latest, Til it Breaks my Heart is rising to the top of the charts. We can’t get enough of Marianne. Give a listen . . .
