Mariah Bonner is a singer, recording artist and all-around entertainer based in Baltimore, Maryland, with a repertoire in French and English, ranging from American standards, French ballads, musical show tunes and new material. She was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and moved to France with her family at the age of ten. She studied ballet and theatre in Paris as a teenager and started a career in fashion modeling. Mariah graduated from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and discovered there the art of telling stories through song. She pursued her artistic career in Los Angeles, playing in a variety of films such as The Social Network and the Universal Soldier series, and on television in series like Scorpion and Rules Of Engagement. She founded and led a play-reading group, Blue Tiger Salons.
One day, on a film set, the director noticed her humming a tune, and asked if she would like to record the original song he had written for his short film, “Ma Cité, Mon Histoire.” She had found her vocation! Mariah has performed at Germano’s Cabaret Room and Keystone Korner in Baltimore, The Gardenia Room in Los Angeles and Pangea in New York. Mariah has produced and recorded two albums with pianist, composer and singer Marcus Dagan, who will accompany Mariah for this performance. The two will be releasing a third album this year, which they recorded live at Keystone Korner Baltimore.
