The music of Marcie Hernandez lives in cultural dualities. Born to Puerto Rican parents and raised in Rochester, New York, she is a singer-songwriter with a sound that combines Latin rhythms and instrumentation with the feel and lyrical vulnerability of indie folk music. Each of her songs is a snapshot of her life, telling stories of love and loss, growth and transformation.
Supported by a full band, Marcie’s songs achieve a dynamic and full sound that carries listeners through a wide range of emotions, much like her debut album, Amanecer. Each band member adds their own personal flavor, creating a melting pot of musical influences. Songs explore the cultural dualities often present in this music, with some songs holding a heavy indie-rock feel, while others may sound more like a traditional salsa tune.
