Currently based in Madison, Wisconsin, singer and self-producer Lo Marie is bringing to life her new, relatable single “The Gap”.
The track shares the struggle of the pay gap for women in industries across the board, not only in the U.S. but across the globe.
Lo Marie utilizes jazz inspired instrumentation and her sultry vocals in order to grab the listener’s attention and connect to them on a personal level. She knew what she wanted to do with this song and executed it perfectly. “The Gap” combines jazz and funk with neo-soul.

Her debut EP, Beyond the Age of Reason(2012), produced by ace Nashville session man Jerry Kimbrough, earned Lo Marie an international following, enabling her to tour the US from New York to Los Angeles. Her follow-up, Solid Ground(2015), also produced by Kimbrough, won the “Jazz Album of the Year at the 2015 MAMA Awards (Madison Area Music Association Awards). In 2018, Lo Marie won MAMA awards for “Best Female Vocalist,” “Best Jazz Performer,” and “Cover Song of the Year” for her duet, “I’ve Got A Crush On You,” with the legendary guitar player Cliff Frederiksen.
