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 her upcoming independent sophomoric CD “360 Degree Woman: Rebirth.”
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 most recent album 360° Woman: Rebirth, produced by world renowned musician Marcus Williams, is being met with rave reviews. Part one of this highly anticipated trilogy is 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 legendary Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” tour. “She doesn’t fit a mold, but brings her own style, much like Jill Scott.”
Ms. Maree’s love affair with music goes back to her early childhood. Born in Muncie, Indiana, Cheri 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, blues and gospel.
This highly sought after, multi-talented, audience-pleasing artist has graced the stage with legendary Grammy Award winning artists such as 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.
“Music is love’s pathway,” says Cheri Maree. “Love creates an energy that calms, soothes, and transforms the heart, helping us to move through challenges and make positive changes in our lives.”
“Cheri’s always had a great stage presence and a phenomenal voice,” says world-class groove master and celebrity artists’ go-to drummer John Blackwell. “It’s her time to shine, and I know she’s doing her thing!”
At home from Atlanta 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. “It is my intention to bring a deeply divine experience every time I walk on stage. I let Love command the mic.”
In addition to writing great music, Cheri Maree has also written her very first book entitled “Wealthy Woman’s Stew: The Journey To Nurturing My Soul”, scheduled for release on February 14th. Her book is an intimate story of challenge and triumph centered on 8 simple ingredients of a homemade stew which transformed her life and inspired Cheri to learn to Love herself again.
