Marlene Oak is an exciting, fast rising Stockholm, singer/songwriter who listeners will be mesmerised by her soothing vocal tone that expresses raw emotion, and manages to move audiences like very few other artists can. Influenced by her idols Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Janis Joplin – it’s easy to sense a timeless spirit in her songs.
Growing up on a small island Oak turned to music as an escape. After spending her teenage years busking on the streets of the Swedish capital’s Old Town, she first got discovered by somebody who simply happened to pass by. After releasing a selection of tracks, the rising star has gone all in as a live artist, and built her following on the pub and festival stages around the country.
Marlene Oak has enchanted audiences with her folk-rock melodies as the opening act for stars such as Miss Li, Whitney Rose, Susto, and she has been a part of the line-up at major festivals including Way Out West, STHLM Americana and Irisfestivalen. Speaking about performing live, Marlene says: “My favourite part about being a music creator is playing live. When you play live, there’s something magical happening. Music in itself is magic, and when you stand there and sing your self-written songs, an invisible bond between me and the audience sort of forms. There’s some sort of connection that’s like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. It’s truly amazing.”
And now she is ready to share her brand new single with the world, ‘In The Evening’. This is another track that will no doubt delight fans across the globe and is lifted off her upcoming EP ‘Silver Moon’ out January 11th, 2019.
Here at CelebMix we are thrilled to bring you the exclusive premiere of the single:
