Rocking literally from the cradle, MTV Artist, Hali Marie is an American rock music performer, record executive, promoter, and producer. She is most recently known for her appearances on MTV, and other prominent music publications.
In 2006, her internet single, "Sad Sad Eyes", hit Myspace Music, receiving over 1 million plays. The single was later pulled from the internet, by Marie, after several record labels expressed interest in her career. She rejected every single offer, as she writes, to "maintain creative control of my music". "People thought I was crazy", she later writes.
Since then, Hali has played thousands of shows, performed across multiple genres, and recently performed alongside touring acts - The Charlie Daniels Band, Rare Earth, Lynn Anderson, The Verve Pipe, Signal Path, and many others.
Proficient in electric lead guitar, bass, drums, banjo, shamisen, mandolin, and piano, Hali describes her sound as a mix of rock and roll, hard pop, and blues. She has been writing songs since she was 10, and recorded her first song at age 12. Since her first trip to the recording studio, her songwriting has evolved into a mix of hard rock/blues that sets itself apart form other artists on the radio.
Hali is currently working with MTVN/Scratch Out Records and is filming a reality TV series.
