Mariannie - Rorschach (EP)

Influenced by artists such as Janelle Monáe, The Weeknd and Banks, Mariannie Ompoc is a Philippine born, Canadian raised soul/R&B singer and songwriter who has proven to be a tenacious self-starter. Mariannie has sonically changed course with her sophomore EP aptly titled Rorschach, which she produced entirely by herself with the exception of "Cold As Ice", co-produced with Rabby Teng of One Ink Studios. With her signature vocal style and her thought-provoking lyricism, the insightful artist has applied her skills to a new sound. Mariannie's magnetic versatility shines through on Rorschach, with gems like the soulful "You’ll Save Me" and R&B driven "Like I Wanna". The unsparing "Cold as Ice" also reflects her flexibility to adapt and embrace experimentation with in the R&B genre, flowing seamlessly into a PBR&B themed cautionary lyric about love unrequited to its fullest.

Speaking on the release, says:

"There was a very long period of my life where I was in a dark place mentally. This EP is a reflection of that season, and I wanted to express myself as best as I could to somehow capture it in the form of sound, lyrics, and melodies. I was cooped up in my studio, and I was experimenting, and that’s all I wanted to do. These four songs came about an echo of that point in my life."
