American folk singer and songwriter Marissa Nadler (b. 1981) hails from Massachusetts and has released six records under her own name to date. Rooted in the Americana movement, the singer is also strongly influenced by the music of Leonard Cohen (she has already covered or recorded “Famous Blue Raincoat”, “Chelsea Hotel #2”, “Winter lady” and “Avalanche”). At the same time, Marissa Nadler has been perfecting over the years a highly personal and timeless style many critics have dubbed “dream folk”.
Dream folk is a fusion of the ethereal atmospheres and textures of dream pop with more stripped-down acoustic-based folk songs. Dream folk artists sometimes develop a mysterious persona, and tend to incorporate surrealistic or gothic themes with traditional folk music ideals and imagery. The artist most often associated with the label is Marissa Nadler. last.fm
