Marla Joy

mjFeaturing Marla Joy – " the muse" of Hendrikka Waage fashion line.

"There was this stunning slip of a girl on stage, with this beautifully powerful voice singing her heart out, the rawness and pure emotion that she sang with, had me frozen on the spot for her entire performance. I was just blown away. She immediately brought to mind Janis Joplin and the whole boho/ rock vibe - I knew right there and then that Marla Joy would be part of the inspiration for my next collection, says Hendrikka"

Anyone who has had the opportunity to hear Marla Joy sing live has agreed, her vocals are the likes of which haven't been heard in decades and she sings from a place that seems well beyond her years.

Marla began to share stages, with the likes of: K.C and the Sunshine Band, Cassandra Wilson, The Temptations, and many more. In 2005 she was asked to perform her soulful stylings to a sold out crowd at Massey Hall, backed by the Canada Pops Orchestra. She was invited to headline the Sick Kids Celebrity Gala, the Make A Wish Foundation Gala, and opened for the queen of hip-hop soul, Mary J Blige, at Matt Damon's OnexOne Gala.

Marla's career has continued to reach new heights. With the completion of her first EP "Blackbird" in 2010, she has showcased her talents at world-renowned venues across the United States such as Los Angeles' House of Blues and New York's famed Arlene's Grocery, Don Hill's, and Highline Ballroom. She was personally asked by recording artist Citizen Cope to open for his U.S. tour. Often praised for her eclectic and unique personal style, Marla performed at the Bowery Poetry Club and Style Thirteen showcase during New York's 2011 Fashion Week.

Marla is currently recording her full-length debut album. She has collaborated with some of the worlds greatest writers and producers: Dave Tozer (Grammy award winning producer and writer for Jay-Z, Kanye West, John Legend, and John Mayer), Devo Springsteen (Grammy award winning producer and writer for John Legend, Kanye West and Estelle), Craig Ross (Lenny Kravitz, Mick Jagger, Sheryl Crow, Nikka Costa), Adrian Eccleston (Nelly Furtado, Kylie Minogue, Divine Brown), Bill Bell (Jason Mraz, Justin Nozuka), Justin Grey (Joss Stone) and John Baxter.

"There is no question that the Talisman Collection represents everything about me: diverse, bold, natural. It's an honor being Hendrikka's muse, Marla Joy."
