With lyrics that speak to joy, pain and real-world experience, coupled with her soul-soothing melodies, Memphis singer-songwriter Marci Coleman dishes out a delightful mix of folk and pop/worship reaching people from every walk of life, whom she hopes will hear themselves in her music and be encouraged that, even in our brokenness, we all have the hope of a Savior.
A gifted singer from a very young age, Marci has always carried a passion for music. She began singing in church and eventually picked up the guitar and began writing for herself. The past few years she has been dedicated to pursuing vocal lessons and formal music education as well as performing live and leading worship professionally. Marci graduated from Visible Music College in downtown Memphis in 2014. The following year she was signed to the school’s non-profit label, Madison Line Records.
Marci views her recent partnership with Madison Line as another step toward her long-time goal of dedicating her life to music. “I want to solidify my own sound,” she says, “And show the world what it is that I care about.” As a recent addition to the Madison Line roster, Marci has been writing and recording songs to be featured on her new EP due out Summer 2015. Drawing from influences like Ellie Holcomb, Brooke Frasier, Joy Williams, and All Sons and Daughters, the EP is set to be made up of honest songs that aim to bring people into a place of true worship. She says “I want my music to be real and relatable. I want people to see who ‘Marci’ is as a person.”
Ultimately, Marci Coleman hopes that people will find joy and hope through her songs and know that they are not alone in their everyday struggles. This will be the message playing loud and clear on her new EP coming Summer 2015.
