Maryanne Ito Live at the Atherton
Although she's won both a Na Hoku Hanohano Award and Best International Artist at New Zealand's Pacific Music Awards for her 2014 debut, the confines of the studio never quite capture the magic that happens when soul/jazz singer Maryanne Ito performs in front of a live audience.
Pure, honest, powerful. You can feel it regardless of the stage, players, or the songs.
We knew someone needed to make a live album with her... so we did.
Maryanne Ito has toured New Zealand, London, and recently New Orleans when Gilles Peterson and his Worldwide FM crew hosted Maryanne alongside artists like Doug Wimbish, king Britt, amp Fidder, and Tank & the Bangas for the Six of Saturns Music Festival.
On November 1, 2017, Maryanne and her band performed all new material for friends and family at the Atherton, an intimate venue amidst the bustle of Honolulu city life. It was an experience nothing short of magical. You can hear it on the record.
