Mariah ParkerPetaluma, CA
Mariah Parker has been playing music from the time she could reach the keys on the grand piano in her family home. While completing her degree in music at UC Santa Cruz, she worked with ethnomusicologist Fred Lieberman and drummer Mickey Hart on the “Planet Drum” project and became fascinated with the possibilities of bridging musical concepts from different traditions. She has performed her original compositions in festivals in the US and Europe. A gifted composer and band leader, she released her first solo recording of her compositions, “Sangria,” in February of 2009. Her second release, “Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert” was released in 2017 and spent 16 weeks on the National Jazzweek Airplay chart, reaching #32. Both releases received extensive airplay and critical acclaim worldwide.
