Mariami is an original recording artist noted for her eclectic mix of modern RnB and Pop music. She was born overseas in Tbilisi, Georgia. Kicking off 2013 with her debut single i Cried, the Georgian songstress lays her highly stylized spin on a classic Notorius B.I.G. inspired record and makes her premiere indie debut on DJ Booth.net. Mariami was featured most
recently as a headliner at NYC NuBlu Jazz Festival. She was a featured
artist in Eric Roberson's showcase at New York's SOB's. Skope
Magazine, Sonicbids and Indie Music Universe have named her “Artist on
the Rise." In the summer of 2012 she released two critically acclaimed
video covers of Bill Wither's classic "Ain't No Sunshine" and Ryan
Leslie's "You're Not My Girl." Her music currently streams across the United States on
major college and commercial radio stations.
"Hailing from Tbilisi, Georgia—the country, not the state—the unsigned
R&B singer showcases her steadfast devotion to her principles as
well as her smooth, jazz-inflected sound on newly-released promo single
and DJBooth debut I Cried"
"We hear an amalgam of R&B and jazz stylings coupled with Georgian folk influences. Her reworking of the music she sings to fit her own world music sensibilities. She broadens the sound of R&B...a fine vocalist with a lovely tone, excellent phrasing and superb diction."
