In similar fashion, Boston-born and Los Angeles-based Haitian-American artist TeaMarrr unlocks such healing by penning songs. Clutching a signature teacup and coloring her hair to reflect wisdom, she emerges as something of a 21st century sage on her first full-length album for Position Music, Tea Turns To Wine</i>
She exclaims, “I’m Just a Haitian girl trying to cry less and sing more, in this crazy world because music is healing My art does just what a cup of tea can do for you. Whether it’s hot or cold, I want people to feel good. My name is an acronym for—Totally Enthused About Making Really Really Raw—music, art, fashion, or anything. Whatever it is, it has to be raw. That’s my Tea!”
While recording in Toronto, TeaMarrr met songwriter Kareem James (Kiana Ledé). Both eventually relocated to Los Angeles to begin crafting Tea Turns to Wine.
