Laini Marisa

Laini Marisa is a singer/songwriter and an International Recording Artist. She has recently performed in Kaiserslautern, Germany and recorded in Frankfurt, Germany.  She had the pleasure of touring in Japan and most of the major cities in the US with the Steve Arrington Band (former lead singer of Funk Band Slave), and has performed on stage, singing background and opening up for such acts as: Ronnie Laws, Tom Browne, Marzette Griffith, Dee Alexander, Garland Green with the Chi-Lites, Gerald Butler, Lil' G of Silk, Frank McComb, The Average White Band, The Temptations, Musiq Soulchild, and Rachelle Ferrell, Mikki Howard, Jodeci and Brian McKnight just to name a few. Laini is Afro-Cuban born in Chicago, Illinois. Being Afro-Cuban, Laini was musically influenced by Tito Puentes, and Celia Cruz who were favorite artists of her mother’s growing up, among many other Latin artists. Other favorite artist influences of hers are:  Chaka Khan, Teena Marie, Natalie Cole, and Brazilian artist, Rosalia de Souza. Laini has also performed jazz and created a buzz amongst her listening audiences in appearances all over Chicago with Imagine That Jazz Duo, the John Wright Trio, Crosswinds Jazz Band and was great vocalist in a tribute to the late jazz musician Eldee Young.

Laini has a dance mastery of Salsa, and Cha-Cha that make her mother proud, and is also proficient in the styles of Merengue, Bachata, and Cumbia.  She strengthened her skill in these styles by dancing for Latin Street Dance Company in Chicago, professionally, for a year.  Laini loves all genres of music but is deeply rooted in Bossa Nova, Brazilian Jazz and Latin Soul. She loves the sultry sexy tones of these styles of music and when you hear her smooth and sultry voice, you will see that she is just as comfortable singing a song in Spanish or Portuguese, as she is singing R&B, and you would agree that the style suits her.  But that’s nothing.  Laini will perform Rock, House, or even Blues to change it up and show you what she’s really made of.

Laini was fortunate enough to do a jingle for the Chicago Bulls that received a lot of airplay on WGCI, and B96 during the Bulls season and 5th year championship win.  She did this while singing with R&B Pop group, Avanti.

Laini currently calls Record Family Music Group Publishing home where she released her first single “Give It To Me” and is working on completing her first original CD project. Under this publishing company, she is working with producer, songwriter and engineer, Ron Prince, former guitarist and singer for the hot blues group, The Kinsey Report and producer, and engineer, B.A. Record, son of the late but great Eugene Record, original lead singer and songwriter of the famous Chi-Lites.
