Before relocating, she toured twice in New Zealand, had her music selected to be playlisted on Air New Zealand flights and made her first international impact by placing in the Top 50 on Australian radio.
Marianne has also been fortunate to be mentored by platinum recording artist Bic Runga. Her television appearance alongside Jamie McDell and performances on platforms such as the Tedx YouTube Channel, as well as at festivals like Earth Beat and Big Gay Out, highlight her growing reputation.
Marianne is currently in the process of writing and recording her third EP, with a planned release in the summer of 2024. Her relocation across the globe, driven by her unwavering passion for music, underlines her commitment to her craft.
"Leigh's unique voice, and undeniable knack for writing catchy hooks makes her an absolute shining star on Aotearoa's pop scene"
