Marya Stark

In the space between art and persona there is magic. Artists who work their craft for decades may find it on occasion. Marya Stark lives there. Drawing from influences as diverse as Baroque classical, Broadway, pop and folk, Marya crafts a sound that is wholly original. She creates the way she breathes; without choice or hesitation. With her most recent release, “Unstoppable Joy”, Marya embraces the joy of the universe as a palpable force to be enjoyed. The unbridled energy and light of the song are infectious, and open up new aspects of her ministry as an ambassador of peace and activist of the heart. Her recent award-winning album, The Garden, has a greater depth. Marya relates experiences of love lost and found, and of the rites of passage into adulthood. The classical influenced art-pop sound Stark currently prefers makes perfect sense. She loves grand musical gestures and subtle symbolism, but it’s difficult to carve out a single niche for her.

Marya’s craft is deeply influenced by her background in Expressive Arts therapy. She loves to incorporate the audience right into the heart of the song through looping the audience’s voices, passing out props, and telling tall tales. She is a carrier of myth, mystery, and medicine songs with which she embarks to create a ceremony of the human condition, taking her audience on a journey through the caverns of the soul.
