At just 25-years-old, singer and songwriter Maryon King is emerging as one of pop’s most exciting new talents. Born in Calarasi, Moldova, raised in Padova, Italy and London, and now based in Los Angeles, Maryon’s musical journey has been anything but linear. Her story is one of grit, determination and compelling natural talent.
She first fell in love with music at the age of eleven when she saw Madonna performing “Hung Up” on MTV. Her parents encouraged her to follow a more traditional, less-risky path, but Maryon was undeterred. She spent her teen years sneaking out to singing lessons, without the knowledge of her parents, and learning to play guitar. At the age of 18, Maryon acquiesced with her parents’ wishes and headed to university in London to study languages but secretly switched her degree to music within a few months.
Buoyed by steadfast determination and undeniable talent, Maryon immersed herself in the London music scene. Over the last 5 years, she’s written in London, Los Angeles and Paris, working with The Stereotypes, Pam Sheyne, Aaron Forbes, Martin Luke Brow, Adj Buffon and Gez O’Connell to find and perfect her left-of-center pop sound. With a knack for heartfelt lyricism, irresistible melodies and a soulful voice that belies her youth, Maryon has quickly revealed herself as a promising new act to watch.
Last year, she released her debut single, “Hustler,” and followed it up with two more songs, “Flatline” — which has already amassed over 500K streams — and “New Life.” And Boys Will Be Boys which is at almost 1 M streams.
Now settled in LA, she has shared her debut single, ‘Back to Strangers,’ from her EP a collection of songs that see Maryon rising from the ashes of heartbreak, stronger and more confident than ever before. “I want to make the listener feel less alone in a world that’s so chaotic and uncertain,” she says. “Music saved me and I hope my songs can be a relief in someone else’s life.”
In addition to her own music, Maryon has also co-written and vocaled songs for Afrojack, Martin Jensen and Tiesto, performed on Sigala’s sold out tours in the UK and Ireland, and opened for BEKA on her sold out UK tour.
