"Marcy not only brought the house down with her acoustic rendition of "Stay" at my wedding, but she also penned the a glorious song about our relationship. It was the soundtrack for our wedding video and something I still listen to to bring back that night's magic." Bradford Shellhammer 

Co founder and  Vice President

​“Marcella Detroit is really a master songwriter and magnificent vocalist!!  When I asked for an original song for one of the most underserved holidays of the year, Thanksgiving, I had no idea she would be able to create such an emotional, inspirational, and stunning piece of music.  Dinner guests were in awe when we played it for the first time at our annual gathering with family and friends.  Made the evening unforgettable and established a new annual tradition for us.   We will cherish ‘Thanksgiving Day’ for the rest of our lives.”
Jim Hollenbeck

President of Hollenbeck Associates Public Relations.

Custom Song Creation:

​I can write and record a custom song to order. If you want a song for a special occasion or person I will produce and record a song to your specification. You might be having a trade show and need a theme song. You could be a brand and want music to add your product website. Maybe you want a song for your future wife, husband or your new TV show. Whatever your musical needs the Songseamstress can help.
