Hearing the music of Marci Geller for the first time is akin to reacquainting yourself with an old friend—one who dangles a bevy of mysterious and playful secrets that seem meant only for you through the power and majesty of her performance. There is an ease about her, almost as if you've been invited to her home—her musical home. And yet, Geller's songwriting often captures and surprises even the most casual listener. Whether it is her words, her voice, her melodies, or the way she plays either her piano or her guitar, hers is a passionate experience that stays with you long after the music's over.
She is on a mission to connect, and on a trajectory that seems unstoppable. Since returning to solo status in 2012, she released the full-length CD Open Book, which reached #33 on the Folk-DJ Charts and was named one of the Top 100 Albums of 2012 on the Roots Music Report: Folk Chart. Her latest release, Square Peg, was successfully funded at a whopping 130% on Kickstarter and further bolstered when the backers started posting “selfies” of themselves with the CD. The #ImASquarePegToo campaign approached critical mass and created a stir on social media. It also charted at #8 for Top Albums May 2016 on the international Folk-DJ charts.
Credentials include being named an “Editor’s Choice” in 2010 as one of the top songwriters of the last decade by Independent Songwriter Magazine. She has performed on Live! with Regis, Good Day NY and Fox Morning Show, and her music can be heard in soundtracks on MTV, VH-1, PBS, ABC Family, A&E, Discovery Channel, USA Network and others. She also toured for two years as the support act and backup vocalist for legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore’s Folk-Renaissance band Blackmore’s Night, where she performed her stirring solo sets for 10,000+ people every night. Having shared the stage with luminaries Christine Lavin, James Maddock, Vance Gilbert and Buskin & Batteau, both Maddock and Gilbert made guest appearances on Open Book. Geller’s new album Square Peg features duets with renowned musicians Lori Lieberman and David Buskin, as well as guest appearances from Mya Byrne, Barbara Kessler, Brian Dunne (Hall & Oates), Craig Akin and Jon Preddice (Miles to Dayton). She has twice been a main stage performer at the Florida Folk Festival, a featured performer at Folk Alliance International, and an Official Showcase Artist at the prestigious Sync Summit and Durango Songwriters Expo. Her song “Resist” has been chosen for the Dunst Music Project for Social Justice which will be released December of 2017.
