Ogbonné Mary Orji is a multi-instrumentalist creative shape shifter from Endicott, NY. Her main voice can be heard from the tenor saxophone, poetry and composition. She is inspired musically and compositionally by the works of many artists such as Alice Coltrane and Grover Washington to name a few. Her music is to express her love for the higher power by evoking into the ancestors through fuses of poems with music, rhythm, freeness and tapping into the collective consciousness of the universe to bring healing and light to anyone that listens. The extension of Ogbonné Mary Orji is found in her collective “The Mary Orji Visionaries Collective.” This collective was founded in Boston at Berklee College of Music while Ogbonné Mary Orji attended. This band has had a number of successes such as; releasing a visual album called CONCEPTION in 2022 and then releasing their latest album PERCEPTION in 2023. They have also been able to bring their Visual album to The Berklee Performance Center and turn it into a musical and have had success in performing in one of the biggest Festivals in Boston called B.A.M.S Festival playing on the same stage as greats such as; GrandMaster Flash, Terri Lyne Carrington and many more .
As a Berklee Graduate in Professional Music with concentrations in performance, music business and composition, Ogbonné utilizes all of her skills and is known for being a vital force as a creative director, wardrobe stylist and arts manager; who helps others in her collective be their best selves and have opportunity to thrive and showcase and build their artistry through performance and opportunites.
