Striking out on her own after getting “Lucky”

Miller Place, NY…. April 2011... Shortly after the turn of the new year, Suffolk County singer/songwriter and founding member of the wildly popular duo Lucky 13 Marci Geller announced that she and partner Cathy Kreger were parting ways and moving forward as solo artists. “I’m so used to being a member of Lucky 13, it’s going to take some adjusting to get used to being me again!” smiles Geller.

Marci’s career prior to founding the now defunct group is something to marvel at. Her history includes performances on “Live! With Regis,” “Good Day NY,” has a multitude of soundtrack placements and toured internationally as the support act and back up vocalist for Blackmore’s Night. She was recently chosen by Independent Songwriter Magazine (ISWM) as the “Editors Choice” as one of their favorite songwriters of the last decade. Called a “Female John Prine” by Gail Larkin, UUBR and an “East Coast Joni Mitchell” by Judy Antoon, Harid Conservatory, she is known for her strong songwriting skills and emotionally raw performances.

Rumors of a 2011 CD release have been heard and when prompted Geller enthusiastically replies “The new CD is already in progress and I’m working with some of my favorite musicians including Jay Mafale from the Yayas and David Werner Cook who produced Here on the Edge with Gian DiMauro and I a few years back.”

During her tenure with Lucky 13, she opened for such notables as James Maddock, Vance Gilbert, Jimmy Webb, Jack Hardy & KJ Denhert. Her last releases were touted as: “brilliant songwriting - Great, thoughtful lyrics and very convincing melodies, It is really great to hear an album where the songs, the performance, the overall feeling, really creates "a picture" for the listener” –Peter Holmstedt, Hemifran.

Marci’s calendar is filling up with solo dates and she will be performing her first area solo show of the year at the Beanberry in Miller Place, NY on Friday, April 22nd. “For some reason, I thought when I left Lucky 13, things would slow down a bit for me,” notes Geller. “If anything, I’m busier than ever before…and I guess that’s a good thing!” With a new CD, a fertile tour schedule and a desire to give a performance that leaves her audiences breathless, this tireless chanteuse promises to deliver. “I am so thankful for my time with L13. We traveled some bumpy roads along the way, but all in all, I consider myself a very lucky person!” decrees Geller. For more information, visit her website at:
