Jaime Marvin fell in love with music at a very early age. She started playing drums and percussion in grade school, but baseball was her passion, so it wasn’t until she threw her shoulder out playing on the High School boys JV baseball team that she picked up a guitar. At that moment, she found her new passion. As with everything Jaime does, she immersed herself into music and found her soul. She knew on that day that she would spend the rest of her life playing, listening, teaching, and sharing music with others.
Jaime’s musical background is vast, from playing percussion in the High School band, studying music theory, teaching guitar and drums, being the piano accompanist for ballet classes at the University of Michigan, working at the local music store for over 9 years and then owning her own music store and café, she surrounded herself with music. She also attended Galloup School of Luthiery, where she earned her Master Luthier Certificate. Her love for music continued to grow and soon she began to play in local coffee shops where her talent was quickly recognized. This opened the door to bar gigs and private events, giving her the opportunity to make her living performing music. She is now a staple of the local music scene and also on Mackinac Island during the Michigan summers.
Jaime has a diverse repertoire, and her musical influences are from a vast array of different genres, but somehow she is able to pull a unique element out of each of those to make her own flavor. Jaime states, “No matter what I do in music, I will always perform with all of my heart and soul”. Along with being an accomplished vocalist and guitarist, Jaime has been writing for a few years and has just released her first album. Jaime is, in a word, raw. . . what you see is what you get. When she plays, her music touches your soul, she feels every chord, every note, and so do you.
