The name Demi Marriner is common tongue in the UK music scene, and for good reason.
Armed with a stack of notebooks, a head full of ideas and a collection of incredible jackets, Demi Marriner is a songwriter well worth keeping track of. Demi’s passion and emotion is so contagious, it is almost impossible to not be captivated from the offset. Riding shotgun alongside her unique, outstanding songwriting are Demi’s powerful, emotive live performances. Demi’s confidence and professionalism on stage sparkle even more than her guitar strap and matching capo. Whether she’s pouring out her heart in an intimate solo shows, or kicking down the saloon doors with her incredible backing band, Demi knows how to impress.
After a successful debut EP 'Tracks and Trails', and follow up EP 'Dandelion' reaching numbers 1 and 2 respectively in the iTunes UK Country Album Charts, Demi is currently in the process of creating her debut album.
The southwest songstress' tassel boots have already graced many a great stage, including; The Symphony Hall supporting Rufus Wainwright, the Town Hall with Sam Outlaw, the Jazz Arena at Cheltenham Jazz Festival, the main stage at Wychwood Festival, the main stage at Buckle and Boots Festival, and the Forest stage at 2000 Trees. Demi has made her mark performing in the UK, Ireland, Europe and Canada and America, performing at AmericanaFest in Nashville, Countryfile at Blenheim Palace, Silverstone Woodlands, and Beardy Folk festival to name a few. She has also had the joy of supporting artists such as Jon Gomm, Tia McGraff, BJ Barham (of American Aquarium), Cattle & Cane, Wildwood Kin and Elles Bailey.
Following the physical release of her live one microphone 5 track EP ‘ Tales’, the online video release for each track on YouTube, and a songwriting trip across America, Demi is constantly creating new music and is set for an exciting 2019 filled with touring shows and the recording of her debut album!
"One of the leading ladies on the live UK country circuit"
- Nick Cantwell, Belles and Gals.
"A fantastic and instantly recognisable voice and sheer determination"
- MBC Blogging.
"There are two distinct facets to Demi's music - there’s a glorious feel for melody with a host of memorable tunes and hummable hooks, but this is juxtaposed with a lyrical power that has the ability to sucker punch you when you least expect it and make you breathe in sharply."
- Geoffrey Head, SLAP MAG.
