BIOGRAPHY OF Marie Mørck
On her follow-up album, the 28 year old Marie Mørck from Denmark continues to explore the dreamy universe as heard on her succesful debut album, Fooling Around (2019), for which she was nominated at the Danish Music Awards 2020 in the “best vocal jazz” category. She displays excellent musical creativity, and you can hear how comfortable she feels in her role as a singer, and how playfully she uses her voice. Her music is a peculiar mix of influences, such as Joni Mitchell, Björk and Ella Fitzgerald, creating a unique and modern soundscape. She is not only a singer, she is also a gifted songwriter and composer. Apart from one standard, she has written or co-written 8 of the 9 songs on the album. She explores a vast spectrum of musical vibes that result in a highly catchy and daring variety of songs, ranging from the tender, heartfelt title track “Song to Comfort” to the fun and quirky opening track “On My Way to Nowhere”. Carrying the album through is the distinct presence and nerve heard in the tone of her exquisite vocal performance. Marie Mørck is accompanied by renowned and well-established Nordic musicians Britta Virves, Jon Henriksson and Jonas Bäckman. The group shared plenty of experiences on the bandstand, touring in China, France, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. With her diverse blend of the pure, Nordic sound and the modern jazz of today, her voice hits a universal tone, and moves the listener, regardless of personal preferences and musical genres.
