Dreaming of being a pop star since before she can remember, Marilyn auditioned for The Voice with hopes of finally starting her career. After not securing a spot on the TV show, Marilyn had all but lost hope in a career as an artist.
During the Covid-19 stay-at-home order in 2020, meanwhile, Marilyn’s father, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, contracted coronavirus while at a retirement home. In order to cope with her inability to visit him, Marilyn returned to songwriting, which she had used to express her emotions since she was young. This gave life to a special song she dedicated to her father and soon became her debut single. Since then, Marilyn has released several singles and an EP which collectively received tens of thousands of streams on Spotify.

“As a successful fashion blogger turned musician, Marilyn Hucek has proved that she is a jack of many trades,” says Elly Bailey for Why Generation.
