"Perfection is not the goal, authenticity is."
Marley is a New York City based performer, born and raised in Los Angeles, California by two patriotic Canadians. She fell in love with theatre after being introduced to the Wicked cast album in elementary school and went on to play her very first theatrical role at age 11 as "singing rock #1" and "pink prickly pear" in The Jungle Book Jr.
Marley attended The Young Americans College of Performing Arts, and toured with The Young Americans non-profit program to the UK, United States, and across Japan, bringing music workshops and live performances to communities without access to musical education. She also performed professionally with The Young Americans in their productions at the La Mirada Theater and the Boyne Highlands Resort.
In 2022, Marley joined the cast of Million Dollar Quartet aboard the Norwegian Getaway with the original Broadway creative team, playing "Dyanne". While on board, she also formed her own jazz band, The Marley Armstrong Combo. Marley also competed in the 2022 "Amateur Night at the Apollo" talent competition at the historic Apollo Theater, finishing in 2nd place, and placing first among the vocalists.
Marley joined the Los Angeles division of the "international pinup darlings", The Satin Dollz, in 2020, and helped found the New York City division in 2022. She has performed as a Doll at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the Nemacolin Resort, and across the country, and is an ongoing performer, vocal captain, and manager with the NYC Dollz.
Marley has been described as "hipster Marilyn Monroe", and a "mix of Judy Garland and Amy Winehouse". She listens nonstop to the film cast of Jesus Christ Superstar and anything Nina Simone. She's an ardent lover vegan pastries and her morning cup of tea.
Currently, you can see Marley onstage in Company XIV's Cocktail Magique.
