Wow, the last years have been tough. But yay. I am happy to share that I kept writing music. And some songs and hooks, chords and structures, a couple of my ideas are promising … I especially love the songs for peace I started writing this year. Please stay tuned! Much love. Marion
Hey guys! I wanted to say hi real quick and send an update. I am so happy that the pandemic is over. We musicians can play concerts again! I feel extremely happy. As you might have already seen on my socials, my new songs center around my undying wish for peace. Thus, I am excited to share that soon I play new concerts and publish songs for you. At the moment, I prepare an important-for-me peace concert for the 14th of May. I hope you enjoy the new songs as much as I do.
And as always, I do something more than “just writing songs” – I am currently teaching refugees free music and singing classes. It is exciting that after the pandemic I have learned and practiced new instruments. I am now a beginner of my silver flute (I used to play recorder even during childhood as autodidactic learner) and my cello playing has become so much better. Nevertheless, the most demanded classes are guitar, recorder, singing and piano. In my new concerts I have already played my new instruments as well. I feel super happy and excited about that. I see you soon, I hope! Feel free to reach out anytime. XX. Marion
Hey, everyone. How are you? I hope you are alright! 2020 has been a challenge, a burden. Some people have fought for their lives. I wrote many a song about hope, and hope to bring you hope. Feel hugged, and stay in the loop! Sincerely, Marion PS: responses eg in emails and posts are always welcome!

Hey guys! How are you? I miss touring… but I hope more than anything that you are doing okay! Feel free to write me anytime. I am happy that you are following my music and project. Thus, I have published a motivating song for you. Please share with your friends!!! #ItsNotImpossible #AMarionThang #RollingOn
So happy that my summer tour is going so well ! We played lots of shows with the band. The highlight was the arena show at Westfalenhalle (11.000 listeners) for which we were musical guests for the German chancelor and the former president of Liberia who gave speeches. It was a special experience to sing my songs during that event! My next show is at mountain summer festival Bad Gottleuba.
OMG our summer tour will be amazing! We will play in front of thousands of people in Europe this summer! One event for which we got invited to perform some of my songs is a talk with the German chancelor Angela Merkel and Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf (former president Monrovia/Liberia)!
In case you are in town, please join our tour kickoff party! We will try and post lots of videos so people from all over the world can follow this awesome tour!
Today I will have my piano exam for my music studies and graduation! Who is crossing fingers for me? Mmh. Yeah. Do you know the songs I accompany myself? One is SLEEPY SUN from my album ROLLING ON, or even just the spontaneous simple draft of WHY DO WE FEEL ALONE which has been a song idea coming to me in the studio before a mastering session. (speaking of which, I have never gotten to record this song so far… ).
Anyways. I do not get to sing or accompany myself in a pop / jazz style today… Nope. Today I am out of my comfort zone. I have to play classical instrumental music for classical piano professors (who are amazing players). I am humbled by the challenge but excited to find out if my performance is enough. It is quite challenging for me to be good in that genre. However, I have practiced like crazy and of course will give it my best!
May your new year be filled with joy and many happy moments, may you find your path and inspiration to make your 2019 dream happen! It would be my joy and happiness if I get to contribute to make your new year more beautiful – with my songs, ideas and music, by being here and sending you song greetings. Thus, feel invited to stay in the loop! We have exciting new pieces cooking up!!! Many hugs! Marion
