In the space between art and persona there is magic. Marya Stark lives there. Drawing from influences as diverse as Classical, Broadway, Indie-Pop, Storytelling and Folk, Marya crafts a sound that is wholly original. Here music has been described as “Freddie Mercury Does the Nutcracker”
Marya Stark’s voice feels as if she were reaching her hands out toward you as if to say, “Come, I’ll show you things you have never seen. I’ll take care of you on the journey.” If one were to look at the lines that map Marya’s palms, we would definitely see an old soul. That voice. It is as pure as a newborn’s breath and yet it sounds like history – the cries of joy, the whispers of intimacy and the whimpers of sadness of a thousand lifetimes.
As a multi-instrumentalist and multi-media enchantress, she creates the way she breathes; without choice or hesitation. 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 lucid journey's through the caverns of the imagination.
An Arizona native, Marya first found her voice in the high desert. While pursuing classical music training, Marya’s love of myth, psyche and sound healing led her to study Music Therapy. This training catalyzed Marya into a period of introspective songwriting, collecting songs as time capsules of her human experience, while exploring soul retrieval and energetic psychology through the expressive arts and ritual performance.
Marya is a living Muse, dedicated to the art of voice, song craft and archetypal embodiment. She enjoys guiding her community of fans and students in the joys of courting inspiration through her online and in-person immersions.
She is enchanted by kindness, nuance, paradox, and synchronicity. She is a life-long chaser of waterfalls, and can’t stop giggling while watching the Parade Of Flamingos from BBC's Planet Earth II.
