ABOUT MARLEE IN THE MIXX
Marlee In The Mixx is an independent, progressive band and production powerhouse currently based out of the Washington, D.C. area. The eight piece collective ranges from ages 21-24 and includes DC area natives as well as members from various hometowns around the nation. The Mixx consists of their front woman, male vocalist, drummer, keyboard duo, lead guitarist, bass guitarist and percussionist. The ensemble sometimes expands to include a brass section.
With musical roots starting in Neo-soul, R&B, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, and DC’s homebase groove Go-Go; MITM comes together to build upon and mixx these genres. The goal is to create a new and constantly progressing sound that blurs lines, knows no gender or age, pushes genre boundaries, and elevates the message in today’s music; hence, the term “progressive”. The band refers to their content as “Monday To Friday” music, communicating themes involving everyday life, struggles, triumphs, spirituality, love, fear and anything all of their listeners can find relation with. Production, songwriting, arranging, and engineering are kept in house with all members being a part of the unique creative process. Currently expanding their sound to include elements of rock, electronic, alternative, funk & much more, expect the unexpected as the group’s inspirations take off.
MITM was founded in early 2011 from the vision of front woman Marlee D, but didn’t take its official start until March of 2012 when all members were divinely united. Their debut performance took place at The Filmore Silver Spring (MD, USA) in front of an audience of over 500 people, where they were the opening act for Island Def Jam’s own Big K.R.I.T.
