Women in Tech & Music Tour and Songbyrd Present

Friday September 18, 2020


When you hear Marielle Kraft’s music or experience her candid live shows, you feel as though you already know her. The indie pop singer/songwriter, based outside of Philadelphia in Delaware, displays craftsmanship beyond her years, following suit to artists like Alec Benjamin, Maisie Peters, and Taylor Swift.

Self-taught, the Rhode Island native began playing guitar at 16 and soon writing songs that strike chords with listeners everywhere. Her gift for storytelling is evident through her use of salient detail, raw emotion, and poignant word choice to describe moments “exactly as they feel.”

Over the past few years, Marielle Kraft has self-released 2 original EPs, including four singles and three official music videos.

Her live EP, The Gibraltar Sessions (2016), features a stripped down delivery of 5 original songs that seamlessly match clever lyrics of love, longing, and identity with ear-worm melodies which many claim "ring in your head for days afterward."



Ask any DMV local about P.G. County, MD-native, CRAMER, and they would likely describe her effortless vocal technique; witty personality; and electric guitar. But if you happen to catch this onion of an artist in one of her many "zones", you’ll notice a D.C. Metropolitan youth arts advocate by day, and unapologetic performer and producer by night.

CRAMER’s mentorship and advocacy for the youth performing arts in her hometown, Prince George's County — Charles H. Flowers High School (PGCPS), Prince George’s Children’s Theater (M-NCPPC) and The Junior Academy for the Performing Arts — has gained her recognition beyond the microphone.

Born and raised in the M of the DMV, CRAMER’s heart has never left home. A now electric performer, guitarist, producer, director, writer, and singer-songwriter, she is creating a name for herself on her own terms.
