Marieme

BIOGRAPHY

Marieme, real name Marieme Diop is a Senegalese-American singer-songwriter with a multi-octave voice, and her work is influenced by R&B, pop, and jazz. Her compositional ideas are influenced by her experiences growing up in a war-torn country and her subsequent global trips. She was born in the African country of Nouakchott, Mauritania in 1988. Her father worked for a regional electricity business as an executive.

She spent her childhood in Senegal with her aunt after her family fled the conflict six months after she was born. She went to the University of Buffalo to study journalism and communication.

She came to the United States when she was seven years old, and the culture shock had a significant influence on her music. Citing Erykah Badu, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Lauryn Hill, and Sarah Vaughn among the iconoclastic greats who carved their own paths, she recognized what she wanted to be, and she accomplished so with a vocal range of multiple octaves.

The beginning of her career was when she moved to Los Angeles in 2017. She worked with producer/songwriter Andy Rose to release her debut single, ‘’Leave’’. Soon after, she got a deal from Jason Markey of Universal Music Publishing Group.

She released her body first EP, “Marieme,” in February 2018, through Caroline Records, with the tracks “Leave,” “Be The Change,” and “Ask For Help.” In September of the same year, she released “Tumblin,” a piece about the collapse of a government system.
