We had the good fortune of connecting with Marjane’ (pronounced Mar-ja-nay) @marjanemusic and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Marjane’ (pronounced Mar-ja-nay), what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my brand success is my Faith and the will to keep creating. Writing Music and having the ability to sings songs comes with a kind of mastery only God can create…it’s important that I stay connected to the spirit of the Lord through prayer, praise and worship. In those moments God began to speak, then I began to write.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I believe I’m set apart because God has declared it over my life lol it’s just that simple. Often times Artist are asked “THE QUESTION” why are you so different from other artists? Well that may be hard to answer for some, but What makes Marjane’ the woman she is.? Well I’ve over come so much in my life time you wouldn’t believe my story if I told you. Or if you were reading it in this interview. Lol. Faith and my relationship with the Lord has helped me overcome it all. You hear that in some of my music that I write. Marjane’ is a brand of Faith, Endurance, and Love… This is very deliberate because I know my gift is truly a “gift”. I’ve learned so much over the years being in this music world and I welcome the nuggets I’m still learning along the way…..
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love to have fun and I love to make people laugh. My sisters know this all to well. Lol well if I had a long trip with my sisters it would truly be some hilarious moments. We would be on a beach somewhere. I love breakfast so that’s first period. I love to eat Lol .. then we can get dressed real cute and head out to Enjoy God’s goodness in the sun while sipping on my water or fruit juice. I don’t drink my sisters do and that makes for fun times too. Lol then hopefully there’s an arcade so I can whoop somebody’s butt in my favorite games. I’m big kid at heart and I can be competitive when playing games, the shouting you see is if I won a jackpot in Vegas or something…. lol lastly to cap the night I can enjoy a great chic flic with my fuzzy socks and pajamas…. I have my own script in every movie I watch they just can’t hear me screaming at the tv. lol lol
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to recognize Marvin “SoMarvelous Paige” the baddest producer in my world lol . I believe our music chemistry was sent by God. Our love for God and the will to never give up keeps empowered to keep creating! I also would like to thank my husband David, my son Demarcio and my family. They encourage me to never give up at times when it’s rough. This gives me strength to keep moving and for that I love them so much. . Last but not least my Radio family and listeners, I couldn’t do this without them. Together I’ve gained listeners all over the world through downloads and streaming! Thank you all so much.
