“"Looking for something new? Marie Chabot is a singer who brings her years of singing experience to create an album with jazz, blues, and country influence. A refreshing change from so much of the computer generated garbage that passes of popular music."”
— racote....iTunes, June 2012
A contemporary singer/songwriter in the tradition of James Taylor, Janis Ian, and Joni Mitchell, Marie Chabot, a New England native. weaves her musical stories around her acoustic guitar and piano. She grew up listening to the singer/songwriters of the 70s and 80s in her home state of Massachusetts, and began performing in local clubs and coffeehouses as a college student to earn money for her tuition. Later on, she moved to Nashville, TN, where she worked as a studio background vocalist, and sang on demos for other songwriters. She eventually moved back to Massachusetts, where she continues to write songs, record independently, and perform as a solo artist.
Marie has a MA in Theology from Loyola University, New Orleans, and works as a Director of Faith Formation at a church in Easton, MA, in addition to her career as a musician. Most recently, she has been traveling back and forth from Massachusetts to Nashville, TN, working on a new album of original songs. These songs deal with her recent losses — her husband, parents, a close aunt, as well as stories about her grandfather’s immigration from Italy in the early 1900s. Telling these stories, facing her feelings about these losses, has been an emotional, healing process. The songs have a decidedly spiritual bent, and the melodies and instrumentation reflect the Celtic and Italian overtones of her recent travels to Italy and Scotland.
