Last of our Performer Spotlights, our headliner Marianne Ross

Marianne Ross is a 22 year old Filipino-American
indie-alternative bedroom pop singer-songwriter from Southern California. Her hit song “violet” garnered over 1 million streams on Spotify in under 3 months, skyrocketing her career as the next big female singer songwriter.

Similar to other artists like beabadoobee, Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo and Faye Webster, Marianne has carved out her own spot in soft indie-folk with underlying alternative rock influences as an up and coming music artist. With heavy social interaction online, Marianne is building a cult following with her strong songwriting capabilities and enchanting artistic vision.

Since debuting her first single last year in August, Marianne proudly showcases her Filipino heritage and sapphic identity throughout her social media while sharing her music, making her an outstanding creative voice for the Pinoy and LGBTQIA+ communities.

Come see Marianne Ross tomorrow at PCN


PCN IS TOMORROW 🫨 omg omg omg
