Marlowe Carruth is a classically trained pianist who—after a lifetime of playing, singing, and teaching piano—has finally turned her attention to fulfilling a dream of composing.
She released her debut EP in 2016, entitled "Eternal Light". It consists of original, uplifting piano melodies accompanied by equally inspirational orchestration. "Eternal Light" earned Marlowe a nomination for "Best New Artist" by Enlightened Piano Radio. She performed at the EPR awards ceremony in Nashville, TN at the Grand Ole Opry in October, 2017.
Carruth began picking out melodies on the piano at the age of three. She earned a Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance and music education at Meredith College and was honored with the title of Presser Scholar by the Meredith music faculty, an award given to the most outstanding senior music major.
Daughter of the late Cherry Folger—orchestrator for Terrytunes Cartoons and first female trumpeter to play with the North Carolina Symphony—Carruth’s desire to compose was birthed at a very young age. Her talented mother died of cancer when Carruth was barely four years old. “Exploring my mother’s compositions was a way to feel connected to her and learn from her musicianship,” says Carruth. “I have always wanted to pick up her legacy”.
Marlowe Carruth resides in Raleigh, NC, with her husband. She has two grown children and is enjoying being a grandmother. Music continues to run in the family.
