Hi...i'm Maribyrd, a singer/songwriter born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Northern NJ.
Performing as a solo artist, with my bands, and sitting in with lots of the other folks in my musical community,
I play acoustic guitar, mandolin, a little bass, and i love singing harmonies. I started playing in high-school,
self-taught on my mom's old nylon string classical guitar. That's when I started writing. My debut album
"Joe's Basemant" (available at a show or in my shop) was recorded in 2002, with the help of my sweet
north-west Jersey musical community. I have since recorded a few demo's with various projects, and
continue to record backing vocals with lots of local artists. A new album of my own is in the works.
I love traveling to new towns, meeting, and playing for new friends :)
By daylight, i am a decorative artist, working both in people's homes and out of my studio. My skills
include woodgraining, marbleizing, stencils, antiquing, custom wood finishes, furniture refinishing/repair, and
gold and silver leaf finishes. I also specialize in painting speakers/outlet covers/vents to match just about any
finish...wood, stone, tile, wallpaper, paint etc. You can email me if you have any questions or would like to see
samples of my work. My other medium is yarn...i crochet hats and scarves, as well as custom childrens toys,
baby blankets, and other random things. There are a few items in my shop, more to come please check back often!
come find me on the facebooks!
