Marie Chabot grew up listening to all kinds of music -- from the old country records of her dad (Patsy Cline and Hank Williams) to the singer/songwriters of the 70s & 80s -- James Taylor, Janis Ian, Karla Bonoff, Carly Simon, and Joni Mitchell, to the rock records of her brother -- Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, and Jethro Tull. Add that to a full range of piano and guitar lessons, a history of singing in the church choir -- what a combo! Marie's quest for a truly meaningful song with a good beat -- has led her to some odd covers, and some beautifully written originals. She has performed in New England coffeehouses, Nashville clubs, beach resorts in the Carolinas, as well as 6-month gigs in Japan as a piano/vocalist, and a solo tour of Sweden and Norway. Locally, she performs as a solo artist as well as a big band singer with New England's SOS swing band.
Marie grew up in Massachusetts, and later spent several years as a demo singer for songwriters, and a backup vocalist for other artists in Nashville. She has worked with Ray Stevens, Stella Parton, and Billy Dean.
Marie now lives in MA, where she teaches music at an elementary school, works as a church music director, is a vocal coach and private piano teacher, and performs locally as a solo performer, and as a vocalist with the SOS bigband.
