Last month we gave you the need-to-know details about singer/songwriter Marissa Saroca’s album launch here. And today, we’re spoiling you with more! We’ve checked in with Marissa to see what’s on her radar right now, and she’s spilled the beans with our Fast Five.
What are you …
Loving right now: The Hunger Games! Just read it in a day and a half and I want to do it all again, like, now!
Listening to: My Ipod on shuffle. Sometimes I think it’s trying to tell me something with the songs it chooses.
Trying to avoid: Gluten free, dairy free. Dangerously obsessed with Rowie’s Chunky Choccie Bikkies and Macro’s pretend Tim Tams.
Telling your friends about: My new album, Boys Write Love Songs Too. It’ll be up on iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores in a week or two.
Doing next: Music video land! I film Boys Write Love Songs Too in July and putting finishing touches on the Family Man music video for international release.

It’ll be a very happy birthday for Marissa Saroca on the 28th of May. She’s launching her second album Boys Write Love Songs Too before blowing out the candles on her birthday cake. Since her first album, Cheaper Than Therapy, Saroca has racked up tens of thousands of frequent flyer miles, splitting her time between home and touring the faraway cities of London, Paris, New York, and Toronto. Upon each return, she enlisted friends and musicians Adam Miller (8 string guitar) and Adam Morris (drums) to bring her tunes and stories to life. The result: Boys Write Love Songs Too, eight original tracks full of soul, attitude, life, love, and honesty – all showcasing her irresistible voice.
Using Adam Miller as producer, Boys Write Love Songs Too perfectly captures the exciting, raw energy of the kind of live show one can only expect from such seasoned musicians. Saroca’s love for R&B/Soul is still evident, the album’s sometimes-rock edge helping flaunt her new-found sassiness.
