It doesn't take long!||Marion Elise Raven is a Norwegian singer and songwriter. She was born on May 25, 1984 in the town of Lørenskog, Norway. She was formerly part of the duo M2M, along with Marit Larsen. After M2M broke up in September of 2002, Marion was offered a million dollar recording contract with Atlantic Records.|
Raven's first solo album Here I Am was released in the spring of 2005, under the artist name Marion Raven. Raven is said to have written all of the albums tracks herself, except one.
The solo effort displayed a more mature rock songbird that veered away from the bubblegum pop image cultivated by Atlantic Records for M2M. 'Here I Am' sees Marion collaborating with veteran producers Max Martin and Rami, Jimmy Harry, and collaborations with Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe for the song "Heads Will Roll" and rock band Everclear on the song "At The End of the Day". The album mostly chronicles Marion's heartbreak and finding her true identity in an ever changing pop landscape.
Throughout the months of April, May, and June of 2005, there were initially many confusions about the release date of her album in certain countries. A later than expected release date was set for Mexico and Australia. Norway and Sweden received the album on August 10, 2005. The album was received well in Asia, with Marion touring different clubs during June and July in the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and other Asian countries.
In 2005, Marion recorded a track for the upcoming Hollywood film, Taking Charge. The song, 'October' will appear on the movie soundtrack later in 2006.
In early 2006 Marion parted ways with Atlantic Records due to different artistic ideas, with Marion herself saying that she wanted a quicker release in countries such as the US. She is now signed to Eleven Seven Music. The first single from her new label is rumored to be 'Heads Will Roll'. View for more information.
