Marisa Quigley is an award-winning Australian blues/roots singer and songwriter, solo artist, and cabaret performer. With her charismatic stage presence and powerhouse delivery, the husky-voiced chanteuse has drawn comparisons with Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt. Absolutely at home on the stage, with her irreverent wit and deft lyricist, Marisa has audiences in stitches one minute and moved to tears the next.

Her songwriting influences are as diverse as Tom Waits and The Eagles, and her songs span the gamut from haunting to heartfelt to hilarious. With an eclectic blend of blues/roots and alt-country/folk, a wink and a nudge, a tickle and a poke, her act is soulful, fun, endearing—and highly entertaining.
