From rocking the Bob Carpenter Center at UDance 2016 to opening for indie pop artist Betty Who, UD’s own singer-songwriter Marielle Kraft is making a name for herself both on and off campus. On this episode of The Music Room, Mandorichard and Liz Webb chat with the local celebrity about her music, her experiences, and her future goals.
In July of 2014, Marielle released her first EP, “Today Tomorrow Someday,” after recording at Midnight Muse Studios in Newark. Influenced by artists like Colbie Caillat, Taylor Swift, and Sara Bareilles, Marielle creates melodic and relatable songs using her guitar and her perfect, natural vibrato. Along with writing original music, Marielle performs covers and collaborates with other musicians for more than 1,000 subscribers on her YouTube page.
In addition to writing and performing music, Marielle studies elementary education at the University of Delaware. As an elementary school teacher, she plans on incorporating music into her lessons to create a comprehensive and enriching classroom experience for students.
