Andain: Mavie Marcos - Beautiful and Multi-talented
As part of the electronica duo Andain, Mavie Marcos provides her angelic vocals to heart-pumping songs like Beautiful Things and most recently, the soft hit Promises.
Andain is more popular internationally than in the U.S., but their electronica fans everywhere know and love Ms. Marcos.
Mavie Marcos is beautiful, incredibly smart, and multi-talented ...
She seems to be one of the few women in show business to wear her hair natural, with a full head of dark curly hair. Her curls drape across the rocks and sway in the wind in the Promises video. It is enough to want to make me wear my own hair naturally curly again.
Two Big Hits in Different Musical Styles
Although DJ Tiesto has produced a number of versions of Andain's hits, Marcos's performance style is quite different in Andain's two biggest hits.
While Beautiful Things has the upbeat, traditional electronica style, Promises sounds more new age than anything, proving Marcos can morph into many music styles successfully over time.
