‘somewhere between Kate Bush and Leonard Cohen’
(San Diego Downtown News)

‘(reminiscent) of vintage Elton John with beautifully stacked harmony vocals that perfectly set up the verses, a powerful piano track that mixes complex chord/melodic structures with sublimely simple ones’
(San Diego Troubadour)


Four-time San Diego Music Award nominee Marie Haddad started playing piano at the age of 5 but quit formal training at 11 because her attention span required constant breaks for cartwheels.

After having to sell her piano in college, she missed playing so much that she would regularly sneak into a well-known San Diego hotel in the middle of the night to practice on the grand in their main ballroom. Soon, the cleaning staff started to recognize her.

After playing in various San Diego bands (everything from a mall house band to a Xanadu cover project), she joined 12 piece 60’s soul outfit the San Diego Beat Organization. The group was nominated as Best New Band at the 2002 San Diego Music Awards but disbanded shortly thereafter.

It was only then that Haddad finally began publicly performing her own songs. She recorded a solo EP with just Haddad and her piano. Soon after, drummer Nas Helewa and bassist Jason Hee joined the equation and together they recorded Haddad’s debut full-length CD ‘A Beautiful Road’.

Marie Haddad was honored with nominations at the 2007, 2009, and 2011 San Diego Music Awards as Best Acoustic Act in San Diego.
