Mariette Davina is an award nominated musician, author, singer-songwriter of both original and well-known sacred music.
This expressive composer and singer has just released her latest single ‘Over’ to critical acclaim. She is often compared to the vocal style of Kate Bush, and has already enjoyed success with her first album which was nominated for Best Newcomer and best Indie artist in both the CC and LTTM awards. Her music has been played on BBC RADIO 2, she has performed in huge venues such as Bristol’s Colston Hall, her music video has been playlisted on GODTV, and has sold songs all over the world.
Born in the United Kingdom, Mariette moved to South Africa at an early age. She obtained her Music Degree specialising in Performance Opera at the University of South Africa and was awarded two bursaries to do her Honours Degree in Music at the University of Pretoria.
Mariette continued to compose music and landed a record deal. Her album of mostly her own original music was released by a South African record label, and nominated for Best Classical album at the Geraas awards in South Africa.
Mariette then decided to move back to the UK to pursue her music in Europe. Here she ended up in Bible school for 3 years where she learned to lead worship. In an industry where there is so much musical similarity and repetition, Mariette is not afraid to do things differently and remain faithful to her own personal style.
The result is an artist and composer who is quickly gaining recognition for her fresh, innovative approach.
