Mariee Sioux has long been a fixture in the California folk scene since her first album Faces in the Rocks garnered international attention in 2008. Revered for her intricate guitar picking and writing full of haunting poetic mysticism, her music has often reflected her Native American heritage, organic farm filled upbringing and her later hunger for ceremonial and ancestral connection.

There is a transcendent quality in Mariee’s unique expression that often feels otherworldly. She crafts dreamlike imagery and the shared human experience together with such potency and achingly sensitive singing it often moves listeners to tears.

Over the past decade she’s received messages of profound healing experiences the music has supported people through; from births, deaths, ancestral messages and re connection to the self or nature. There seems to be a medicinal quality to her music that is undeniable and sought after in an often destructive and disconnected age.
