”Marieann Meringolo, a singer who bears some physical and vocal resemblance to Barbra Streisand…delivers songs about love lost
and strength found…sung in Grand Style.”
~ Stephen Holden, New York Times
Marieann Meringolo is a native New Yorker who grew up on the songs of the Great American Songbook.
She has been called “One of the circuit’s most powerful singers” and Time Out New York claimed, “If k.d. lang’s DNA were to get whipped together with Barbra Streisand’s in a genetics lab specializing in divas, the result might well be Marieann Meringolo.” She is a MAC Award-Winning Recording Artist as well as a Back Stage Bistro Award-Winner for “Outstanding Vocalist.”
BroadwayWorld.com also had a say in Nominating Marieann’s Alan & Marilyn Bergman show “Between Yesterday and Tomorrow” presented at Feinstein’s/54 Below for Best Tribute Show. And, noted by The Wall Street Journal, “If you don’t do it brilliantly it isn’t worth doing at all…Ms. Meringolo’s powerhouse interpretation makes full use of the dramatic Bergman lyric.”
She performs in New York’s most celebrated venues, [Feinstein’s/54 Below, Iridium, Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center], has toured with the late comedian David Brenner and headlines on cruises around the world. She was recently inducted into New York's famed Friar's Club. She is receiving rave reviews for her 2018 album, released on the BluJazz label, "Between Yesterday and Tomorrow: The Songs of Alan & Marilyn Bergman". New York music critic, Will Friedwald notes, “The music of the Bergmans, as movingly realized by Marieann Meringolo, transports us to a better and more ideal world.”
Marieann can also be heard on several other recordings: Her critically acclaimed debut album: "Hold Me Close", her award-winning second solo CD: "Imagine...If We Only Had Love" (Back Stage Bistro Award & MAC Award for Outstanding CD & Recording of the Year.) Her Live CD/DVD "Here’s To The Ladies! A Salute to Great Ladies in Song" was praised as a “Four-Star Dazzler” in Cabaret Scenes Magazine, and is proud to have released her long awaited and critically acclaimed Holiday album "In The Spirit".
Marieann’s gorgeous voice is often played on radio stations and the internet around the world, and has been heard on selected United Airlines flights as well as Air Force II. She has also had the honor of performing live at the United Nations.
