Her professional music career began after much prompting from friends and family, actively seeking to "get her songs out there!" She was asked to write a song for a production of the Vagina Monologues in Miami. The single, "D is for Denial" became an instant hit with locals! In response to the demand, she self-produced her debut album in 2002 and sold out within two weeks! Her fan base continued to grow at her home college: Florida International University, and rehearsal/jam sessions in the student Union became standing-room only events. Soon enough, she was playing regular gigs around town accompanied by congas and bass. In 2002, she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Women's Studies and a minor in History. Many of her songs reflect her focus on the untold stories of everyday women.
Her artwork, available at www.marceonline.com, also shares this theme. Performance after performance confirms the fact that Marce's music and her honesty touches a chord deep within her audience. She has toured around the country successfully, playing in venues that range from coffee shops and bookstores to Irish Pubs and college events. In both February and May of 2006 , Marce was named Winner for Song of the Year in the Folk Category. A reviewer for the VH1-sponsored contest said that Marce "takes the listener into a state of sensuality.
Both melody and voice have the power that will make you remember the song and the performance." Raised between the United States and Colombia, she's seen enough war to develop a healthy sarcastic edge and enough of love to make her a romantic! Her motto is "Start a Revolution Where You Are!" and she continues to live up to it by staying true to herself with every word she sings. Read more on Last.fm.
