Critics have hailed Marita as "sheerly poetic" and "delightfully inventive".
In her own words, Marita states: "I see my music as a vehicle for positive inspiration. A place where anyone can feel at home with themselves. I hope that my music is honest and true to the human spirit and at the same time fun and entertaining. I strive for that. I want my creations to touch you, make you laugh and be maybe, just a little crazy."

The Celtic Rose        

Listening to this latest release from indie artist, Marita Brake, is a lesson in musical serendipity. It is a tremendous potpourri of undiscovered treasures, cinematic nuances and Brake's personal story told in self penned, yet ancient sounding Celtic tales, a sort of Celtic confessional, if you will.

Featuring Brake' striking vocals and collaborator, Kent Thompson's ethereal keyboard arrangements, The Celtic Rose, invokes visions of enchanted forests and misty, green hills. This is music that touches the heart, stirs the soul and fills you with whimsy.
