Imagine Sarah McLachlan meets Carole King greets Kate Bush with the added heat of rocker Beth Hart and you get a glimpse of the versatility bursting from New York-based Loguidice’s third full-length release Tales from the Topside World.
Loguidice has plentiful lofty kudos. The late, great Arif Mardin said, “A voice like her lyrics: deep, heartfelt and captivating. Marion is beautifully emotional and poetic, a first-rate singer.” Likewise, Cyndi Lauper, who contributed vocals to “Mary” from previous CD God’s House, noted, “Her melodies are hauntingly lyrical, her stories street-wise, passionate and truthful.”In addition to performances at Austin’s annual SXSW Music Festival, Loguidice regularly sells out New York’s storied Joe’s Pub, and has opened for Loudon Wainwright III."
