Marlee Quiarte Wants You to Know Her

By Jaci Jedrych

R&B artist Marlee Quirarte’s latest hit “Know Me” is already making a splash.

Singer and songwriter Marlee Quirarte has been releasing music since 2017. Her music draws inspiration from classic R&B artists, like TLC and Destiny’s Child. Quirarte is also a staunch advocate for animal rights, veganism and protecting our planet.

“I believe the consumption of animal products is contributing to a less desirable experience on earth, and abusing or taking innocent lives for my own entertainment or pleasure is a simple absolute never for me,” she notes.

Her latest track “Know Me” draws from many deep-seated, personal experiences, but also ones that everyone can relate to.

“The breakdown of the song is that when someone you love and care about deeply questions who you are at your core, it leaves you feeling rejected, confused, hurt and essentially feeling alienated,” she explains.

“Throughout the course of the track, you begin to feel and hear the transition of personal acceptance with oneself and the understanding that not everybody understands or cares to understand you – not everyone values who you are and that, ultimately it really doesn’t matter because you do,” she adds.

Fans of  Jhené Aiko or Brandy should check out Marlee Quirarte’s music, for its R&B inspiration.
