Marliii, otherwise known as Marli Delaney, is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, producer, mix engineer and DJ from New York. Despite the internal and external obstacles that challenged her direction for many years, music has always been Marliii’s main purpose in life. Marliii began sharing her music when she was in middle school, when she played mandolin for her school’s jazz band and played bass guitar for an all-female pop-punk band. By the time she turned fifteen, Marliii had written and recorded music in various NYC studios, toured the northeast, performed at her dream music festival at the time (Bamboozle), and showcased for multiple record labels.
Marliii embarked on a 7-year hiatus from music to focus on her high school and college education, until having her third “i” moment. When Marliii was asked to perform at NOS Alive 2019 in Portugal, she realized her mission would always be to create for the world around her, so she chose to grow her focus back to music. Drawing from deep personal experiences, Marliii incorporates the complexities of nature, emotions and moments of truth into her songwriting and production. She utilizes her diverse background of jazz, folk, blues, and EDM to share her story in a distinctive light, inspiring her fans to face their fears and to never give up on themselves.
