Marcia Kester ...
Didn’t we see her on a VH1 special? She was just about to hit the big time when she disappeared... Rumors say she left town with an actor named Viggo… Another said she was off writing a “tell-all book". The facts are deliberately vague... Well, she’s back now! She can be found singing and playing around Western Washington as a Solo Singer/Guitarist or with her Current Band, THREE FOR THE ROAD.
Her voice tells the whole story: the heat, the honey and a bit of Delta hardscrabble. A savory vocal texture that falls somewhere between Patsy Cline and Bonnie Raitt and on towards the Shania Twain zone. Her arrangements add a modern flavor to classic songs… A taste of rock in the country tunes and a dash of country in the rock.
Marcia’s repertoire is a blend of acoustic and electric sounds featuring memorable songs from many genres of music, able to be custom catered to any event. The entertainment you choose can be subtle background music or upfront musical entertainment.
Here are a few of the female artists whose vocal styles Marcia, emulates wonderfully, and whose music she performs:
Patsy Cline, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Wynonna Judd, Melissa Etheridge, Trisha Yearwood, KT Tunstall, Bonnie Raitt, Tanya Tucker, Jewel, Jo Dee Messina, Terri Clark, Mary Chapin Carpenter, KD Lang, and Shania Twain.
Marcia has entertained audiences of all ages and public response is consistently positive. Time and again she holds a crowd with her contagious sparkle and inspiring spirit.
