Cheri Maree – “The Love Goddess”
International Recording Artist, Songwriter and Author brings “Souljazz” to center stage
Silky “Souljazz” vocal powerhouse Cheri Maree is back in the studio mixing sounds with the music industry’s elite, penning heartfelt lyrics to headline part 2 of her upcoming independent trilogy CD entitled, “360° Woman: I AM.”-
Cheri Maree’s much anticipated return to the music circuit brings her dynamic stage presence and authentic soul stirring flavor that heals, inspires, and transforms. “The Love Goddess” sizzles on center stage in the United States and abroad, channeling a range of muses from Streisand to Earth, Wind, and Fire. Ms. Maree's current album 360° Woman: Rebirth (part 1 of the trilogy), produced by world renowned musician Marcus Williams, is being met with rave reviews. It's being described as "Truth Serum for Your Soul" because of the raw honesty she expresses in both the musical and lyrical content of this CD. Cheri feels, "It was time to tell my story so that I can liberate myself and other women throughout the world."
“Cheri Maree’s songs have a message that comes from a real place,” says Mo Pleasure, renowned producer and multi-instrumentalist for the iconic Bette Midler and principle keyboardist for the legendary Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” tour, “She doesn’t fit a mold, but brings her own style, much like Jill Scott.” Cheri’s beloved friend the late John Blackwell, Jr. shares, “Cheri’s always had a great stage presence and a phenomenal voice. I know she’s doing it up.” —John Blackwell, Jr., World class drummer for celebrity artists including Prince, Patti Labelle, Justin Timberlake, Bootsy Collins and Cameo.
Cheri Maree is a highly sought after, multi-talented audience-pleasing artist who has graced the stage with legendary Grammy-winning artists Patti LaBelle, Al Jarreau, Hootie and the Blowfish, Ashford and Simpson, Dianne Reaves, and Brian McKnight.
Her 2007 debut release, “Pure Voice,” melded the jazz, funk, hip-hop, and R&B inspired sound Cheri Maree’s audience craves. CD singles brought positive nods from music promoters and influencers from the UK’s Soulchoonz, U.S.-based Soul Tracks, and the international independent soul community Cheri Maree’s performance at the prestigious Carnegie Hall with the Peacemakers Choir spotlighted her versatility, interpreting a vocal score composed and conducted by the world renowned Karl Jenkins.
A multi-talented vocalist and musician, Cheri Maree’s eclectic sound and style enthrall international crowds and transcend language barriers. Sold out performances in Japan, and her recent 8-city tour of Russia, confirm Cheri Maree’s place on the international music circuit, connecting across cultures to spread an essential message – LOVE.
In addition to music, Cheri Maree and co-author Cyrus Webb have written her very first book entitled “Wealthy Woman’s Stew: The Journey To Nurturing My Soul”, released on February 14th. It is her story of challenge and triumph centered around the 8 simple ingredients of a homemade stew which transformed her life and inspired Cheri to learn to Love herself again.
“Music is Love’s pathway,” says Cheri Maree. “It generates an energy that calms, nourishes, and transforms the heart, helping us to move through challenges and make positive changes in our lives.”
Cheri Maree’s love affair with music goes back to her early childhood. Born in Muncie, Indiana, Cheri Maree tested her vocal chords during early years in Chicago and Columbia, South Carolina. The humanitarian songbird’s musical gifts resonated in church, talent contests, and local bands – her dynamic vocal range embracing jazz, rock, soul, and gospel.
At home in Atlanta and from New York to California, Cheri Maree is pairing with some of the industry’s best to personally design her “Global Lovefest” and orchestrate her passionate rebirth. Her trilogy of projects over the next five years, beginning with “Rebirth,” has “The Love Goddess” baring her soul, owning her future, and living her divine purpose.
“My passion, my life, is music,” she shares. “I intend to bring a deeply Divine and LOVE FILLED experience every time I walk on stage.”
