Biography When her boyfriend categorically refused to teach her to play guitar, Marnie Mains broke up with him & taught herself. Actually, she stole his guitar first and then broke up with him. She still has it. He's long gone. Marnie's stomping ground is the human condition and it should come as no surprise that she is adamantly honest, a little ironic and certainly complex. And while her music is angelic, soft and captivating, Marnie's lyrics are not so anodyne. They're witty, thought provoking and true, and she is certainly no stranger to the double-entendre. Having attracted audiences from London, England to Las Vegas, Nevada, Marnie has toured predominantly alone with that pilfered guitar. Gracing stages such as the Opera House, the El Macombo, Healey's and the Reverb, she's been tearing it up in the Canadian music scene.. Opening up for bands such as Swollen Members, Glass Tiger, the Daughters, and the Corb Lund Band, the Vancouverite has also had National television exposure on CBC's Music Dream where she beat out 1000 other applicants to secure the time slot. Marnie recently came back from Las Vegas where she played The Palapa Lounge at the Palms, The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel & Brendan's Pub at The Orleans. At The Joint, swishy industry types fell for her like the rest of us. Justin Timberlake's producer called her 'mesmerizing', 'profound' and a 'beautiful singer'. We already knew that though, didn't we?
