Mari Waters is a singer and songwriter who finds music the safest place to get in touch with her feelings and emotions. Her lyrics come from a place of vulnerability and self-reflection as a way to look at pain and trauma with kindness by accepting imperfections, feeling human, and learning from our mistakes.
Mari's deep connection with the water, the ocean, and singing, led her to believe that all the answers to her most profound questions or problems will emerge from the sound of water while she is in silence, listening to her heart. She uses that setting to transform life experiences into genuine original music. Each of her songs is a letter written to someone or herself. Words worth sharing with people who might be feeling the same, combined with melodies that encapsulate emotions and create memories of feelings in the form of music.
Music can have the power to heal, and Mari believes that mermaids are not just legends but a representation of intense, free-spirited women who sing. Women brave enough to share deep thoughts about life who question things and feel too much while fighting for empathy, acceptance, and the right to have their voices heard "in a man's world." Mari represents a new generation of women who will not accept being silenced or put in a box, and her music is here to help you navigate the stormy sea of feelings.
