Mari is an Italian singer songwriter who has always been immersed in music . She graduated with a degree in Technical Communications and Music Marketing and she produced and presented the program on the Italian based web radio ‘RAZ’ called ‘Pick Out’. The program was created around Mari’s favourite trip-hop and electronic bands: Air, Portishead, Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, Goldfrapp and Zero 7, one of whose members she would work with in the future.
Mari worked with various music magazines where she had opportunities to know and interview numerous international musicians and singers. One of these the American guitarist Gary Lucas with whom she wrote ‘You Will See My Flame Again,’ an unreleased song dedicated to a great Lucas’ friend, well renowned singer, songwriter and guitarist, the late Jeff Buckley. A decisive meeting for Mari’s career has been the one with Mozez , the front man with the million selling Zero 7 with whom she co-wrote her debut album ‘Gentle Beauty’, a collection of 12 songs produced by Mozez for his record label Numen Records.

‘I believe that there should be no rules to follow when you write a song. There is a timeless dimension which contains all the notes and all the combinations, past and yet to come, and if you’re lucky, it chooses you and gives you a gift, a song’. Mari.
