Official Bio (courtesy of Teisha Marie)
This 26-year-old England-born/Maryland-raised singer-songwriter, is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist, and poet. She's also one who's not afraid to take risks. After graduating from Spelman College (where she studied Music History and Theory) in Atlanta, Georgia, Teisha Marie then headed to Philadelphia. "At that particular time, Philadelphia was experiencing a rebirth of the 'Philly sound', and it was great to be fully immersed in it. I got a chance to meet the greats, like Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, Bunny Sigler, and many others."
Performing at D.C. area hotspots, such as Bar Nun, Mirrors Nightclub, and Takoma Station, has proved to be both enlightening and exhilarating. "I've always written poetry, and I've always loved to sing, whether in church choirs, choruses, or at home, but I never really sang completely by myself, in public, until now."
