Mariami – Gates

Mariami’s gentle delivery and ambient sound provides her the right amount of momentum for others to fall into her creative space.

The Brooklyn, NY-based singer-songwriter recently released her new project, Gates, and it’s steered by an eclectic mix of music, including contemporary R&B, Jazz and Georgian Folk.

Prior to the set’s release, Mariami roused listeners with the emotional title track “Gates (Georgia On My Mind)” and the 90s nostalgic “I Cried,” a record that samples Total’s hit record “Can’t You See.”

The other supporting eight tracks, including the reggae/ska “Nanina,” the triumphant “Best Friend,” the celebratory “Dance Again” and the funky “Black & White,” continue to highlight Mariami’s distinctive and sonically polished body of work.
