Known for weaving dreamy vintage sounds into thoughtful, carefully crafted songs,
Oddeline is a musical project based in Ottawa, Ontario. Influenced by folk, soul, and art rock, Oddeline's first EP, "Fated to Drown," was released in 2021. An introspective set of six songs, "Fated to Drown" attempts to communicate the artist's coming of age through a sparsely poetic lyrical style, timeless sounds, and fiercely independent creative process.
The singer-songwriter, musician, and producer behind Oddeline is Marianne Keuleman. Born and raised in Ottawa, she grew up listening to a wide range of music, but was most drawn to folk-influenced singer-songwriters like Jeff Buckley, Hozier, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Bob Dylan. Marianne studied voice at Carleton University with artist and vocal coach Amanda Mabro. During this time, she taught herself to record music and produced "Fated to Drown" in her home studio. Her captivating live shows and debut record have earned her recognition from Carleton's MusikOttawa showcase, Neighbourhood Noise, Dominionated, Apt613, and Live 88.5's Big Money Shot, along with opening slots with Blinker the Star and Current Swell. Most recently, she participated in the Developing Artist Program at Folk Music Ontario and was awarded their Taylor Mitchell Bursary.
In 2023, Oddeline is busy making another record, giving regular live performances in and around Ottawa, and producing music and videos with independent label Sounds Odd Records.
