Seattle/Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer MariGo, is a tender force to be reckoned with.
The daughter of a musical doctor and a painter, MariGo’s upbringing included taking piano lessons with her sisters, leaving school to catch Chicago Symphony Orchestra rehearsals, and eventually a degree in classical voice from the University of Denver. But the rigidity of the classical music world didn’t fit MariGo, an artist who thrives on meshing together different muses. Instead, she set out to write her own music and explore more experimental sounds—like the otherworldly pop of artists like Bjork and Kimbra, and the kaleidoscopic production of Flying Lotus, Sound Tribe Sector Nine, and Pretty Lights.
In addition to creating her own music, MariGo is passionate about educating and uplifting womxn in the technical aspects of music.
