Biography: Marianni Ebert
Marianni is about to make everyone get up and dance. Her debut CD Swimming to the Moon is a colorful and pulsating mix of Brazilian rhythms and pop grooves. The record is produced by the legendary Eumir Deodato, the eclectic Misha Piatigorsky, and Grammy Award winner Itaal Shur.
This amazing singer/songwriter/actress/dancer is known for her enormous talent as much as she is for her ferocious energy and heart-stopping beauty. Born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Marianni became a star in her home country by appearing in numerous plays, Globo TV soap operas, and commercials. She toured the country extensively with musicals such as “Nunsense”, “Sweet Charity”, and “Sleeping Beauty” and in 1992 she received a Best Performance SATED Award (the equivalent to a Tony Award in America) for her role in “The Little Mermaid”.
In the mid 90’s Marianni made a holiday trip to New York and offers for work started pouring right away. "I came to Manhattan to visit a good friend and maybe take some dance classes and everything happened so fast. Before I knew it I had three acting gigs.” explains Marianni. She was offered the lead role in the off Broadway comedy “She”, starred in the sitcom “Astoria, USA”, and landed a position as hostess for the Cable News Program “Brazil Update Weekly”.
In 2000 Marianni recorded The Millennium Theme for the Times Square New Year’s Eve Party and in 2002 she received rave reviews from the Washington Post and a prestigious Helen Hayes Award nomination for her lead role in the musical “Coisas do Samba”. She also stared in the Musical “Rio” directed by Tom O’Horgan who is best known for directing “Hair” and “Jesus Christ Super Star”.
Marianni is thrilled to have just completed her first Australian tour in support of Swimming to the Moon and is currently hard at work on her second album. Marianni can be seen performing every Saturday night at the famous Zinc Bar in the West Village of Manhattan where she draws an impressive fan base.
