Lisa Marie is a singer, songwriter from Atikameksheng Anishinawbek. Her Anishinabe name is Odemin Kwe, meaning “Strawberry Woman”. In Anishinabe culture the strawberry is known as the “Heart Berry”, nourishing the body, mind and spirit, and connecting emotions. Her music reflects her name; red-chained, heartfelt and passionate. Lisa Marie’s sound can be described as Indigenous folk pop. Her silky vocals, beat driven rhythm guitar, and unwavering lyrics, embody the contemporary Anishnabe Kwe. Her music teleports you to her visions and dreams; like being a spectator at the pow wow in her song “Pow Wow Princess”, or standing with Indigenous women in the song “Power and Strength”. She has won the Northern Lights Festival Boreal Meltdown Competition for solo act and participated in NLFB’s songwriter challenge. She was selected to participate in Music Film and Motions “Northern Showcase” at Folk Music Ontario’s annual conference. She has performed at Indigenous Peoples Day Celebrations from Ottawa to Sudbury Ontario. Lisa Marie is currently working on new music, music production and recording.
