Jan. 27, 2010 - PRLog -- Bronxville, New York,- Marissa Manzino’s original songs express love, hope, loss and peace. She plays mandolin in addition to acoustic guitar. “My music has a bit of a Celtic flair sometimes”, says Marissa. As an Artist she credits  Sarah McLachlan, Joni Mitchell, and Shawn Colvin as some of her main influences. Her rhythmic finger picking is one of the  things that sets her apart from other guitarists. “My alternate tunings are similar to those of Joni Mitchell”, says Marissa.

Her debut album “The Acoustic Experience” received 7 five-star (fantastic!) reviews from fans on CDBaby.com. She started playing guitar during her first semester of collage in 1999. Marissa's songwriting skills continue to pay off with her third album release since 2002. Marissa looks forward to sharing ‘Songbird’ which is scheduled to be released in late summer. The title "Songbird" was chosen because she loves birds and the serene qualities about them.

Marissa graduated from Gorton High School in 1999. While this is a mundane accomplishment for many, it was significant for her. You see, Marissa is totally blind in both eyes and was the first student in New York State in over twenty-four years to earn the coveted Regents Diploma, without the benefit of eyesight. Other accomplishments include obtaining a Bachelor's degree from Marymount Women’s College at Fordham University in Tarrytown, N.Y. She also earned a MSW Master’s of Social Work from the Fordham Graduate School of Social Service.

"There would be no greater reward than to use my music as a tool of healing and to give back to society", says Marissa. She hopes to promote this album to radio and play some local gigs at locations like The Water Color Cafe in Larchmont, NY. Her album “Songbird” will be available for purchase at CDBaby.com and from her website http://www.marissamusic.com
