Again - Single

Marianne Kesler

Acoustic meets shoe-gaze with swirling guitars and plaintive vocals agonizing over lost love.

"Again" is the newest single recording post 2007's Pear in the Pink Thing CD! Co-written and recorded with Chicago-based producer J. Benjamin Kesler, the vocal stylings and heavier intsrumental backdrop venture a bit further into the rock realm than previous acoustic based folk/pop/rock releases. Recorded to stand on its own, rather than for a future album project, "Again" shines, circles, and intensifies as it explores the desperation, longing, and single-minded preoccupation over love lost.

If I Do...

Marianne Kesler

Marianne's music is soothing, soft spoken, mellow, intellectual, meaningful, pure. She is a poet set to acoustic guitar.

Marianne Kesler is a touring singer-songwriter who currently resides in Springfield, Ohio. A Columbus native, Kesler has had a vibrant love for music from an early age. Winning paid tuition for a song-writing intensive and recording project in Nashville helped Marianne launch her touring career. Early inspirations for her songwriting include traditional folk artists, and many have compared her music to artists such as Judy Collins, Carole King, Aimee Mann and Sheryl Crow. She uses her passion for poetry and acoustic guitar to create original songs. Many say that her laid-back, introspective style is a perfect soundtrack for the thoughtful listener. Her writing style embodies allegory and lush imagery set to folk/pop/rock music. Marianne has been living out her dreams performing across the U.S. in coffeehouses to concert venues, colleges to house concerts, plus two international tours. “Pear In The Pink Thing”, is Kesler's sixth release. The title “Pear In The Pink Thing” is a metaphor for mystery. Marianne continues to explore her art in a free and eclectic expression of ten self-penned songs along with acoustic renderings of two of Neil Young’s legendary songs. Marianne's song "What Do I Know" was recorded by Americana artist Brant Christopher (of Big Kettle Drum) and she has co-written over 30 songs with neo-soul/pop/folk artist Leah Thompson. Several of Marianne's songs have recently been licensed for use in a variety of media projects. "If I Do" is a much anticipated single release, stripped back to her folk roots.
