Very sorry i haven't updated for so long, i could tell all
the Marion news, but it can all be checked at the other great fansites like MarionMania and M2MUltimate, etc...
I will try to get a new layout up very soon and since news from 2003 is still on this page, there will be a news-archive, i'll try to get as many pictures up at the gallery as i can and it will be much better so stay tuned for that. The updates about Marion will be kind of slow so make sure to check out the other sites that i mentioned!
Although there is one important newsflash;

Here's her story:
well, it was really great! It was about 40 or 50 people there, or something like that Smiler
It was inside the record store, the stage is really small, and we got to watch from a really close distance!Maggie and I were at the front road, we could touch her keyboard if we wanted, hehe Big Grin
Marion kept smiling and said "It's so good to be home, and see familar faces among the crowd!" Her friends were there, Ida and some others, and her sister, her cousin ( lol she was really cute, and had like 5 cd's she wanted Marion to sign for her Big Grin I think her name was Rebecca. I heard Marion say something like "Thanks for coming too, Rebecca)
Marion started out singing HERE I AM. Then LITTLE BY LITTLE, CRAWL, FOR YOU I'LL DIE, END OF ME and BREAK YOU!
IN the middle of each song, she goes like "Tusen takk for at dere kom, til å med i alt regnet!" (Thank you so much for coming, depsite the rainy weather) OR "Just have to drink a little water"
Uhm, when she was done singing, she went backstage! And came right back out, ready to sign cd's! Smiler
Maggie and I stood there waiting for our turn, even 8 year olds wanted their cd signed! Big Grin
And yup, Maggie had brought her camera and asked Marion if she could take a picture with her. Marion said something like "I guess that would be alright, yes" So yup, I took the picture for her.
I only had my mobile phone with me, so lol, I figured I wouldn't ask for a picture. But I got my CD signed =) Yuuuppp!
And I got to talk a few words with Marion!

Thanks to Linzi who found the article, news about Marion's showcase;
Marion Raven Proves Her Worth At Singapore Showcase
April 26, 2005
Singapore - Marion Raven now looks like a girly version of Stevie Nicks with her long flowing tresses, long black dress, and bohemian-like accessories.
Last seen in the local shores at the 2002 MTV Asia Awards as M2M with Marit Larsen, the Norwegian born 21-year-old has been working hard on her solo material and is now ready to unveil her debut album titled Here I Am scheduled for release on June 6, 2005.
Making an appearance with a short showcase at the M Hotel in Singapore yesterday, Raven performed a couple of the new tracks -- "End of Me," "Break You," "Little By Little," and "Here I Am" -- on acoustic guitar. Gone was the teenage cutsy of M2M. In its place is Raven's assertive voice of vengeful yet positive tunes backed with a strong radio-friendly pop-rock vibe.
But that isn't to say that Raven has forgotten that it's was with M2M that she first found international stardom with the hit "Don't Say You Love Me."
"It's been three years and I see some familiar faces. So nice!" said Raven after recognising some of the fans who were in attendance. And to show her gratitude, the talented instrumentalist did an impromptu performance of "The Day You Went Away" on the piano, while encourging her fans to sing along with her.
Another highlight came when Raven churned out the epic and beautiful "13 Days" that she co-wrote with Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida (Our Lady Peace) on the ivory keys. After a slight mistake, Raven apologised for still having the tune of "The Day You Went Away" in her head and revealed that "it's the first time I've played the song to anybody."
Other than the songs that showcased Raven's newfound maturity and rising force as a female singer/songwriter, it's also the air of luminous confidence and sincerity that make Raven's presence all the the more endearing. To paraphase a Beatles song, this Norwegian
bird has flown indeed.
-- Lennat Mak
Plus a new picture

Good news, Marion performed. A lucky boardmember Phillip747 got to see the showcase..this is what he said:
Tonight I was fortunate enough to be invited to see Marion's showcase for Record executives.
She played at The Knitting Factory and performed 7 songs
Get Me Out
Here I Am
Heads Will Roll
I'll Die For You
My favorites were Crawl, Here I Am, and I'll Die For You
All of them were rockers except for I'll Die For You a very pretty ballad.
It was such a treat to see Marion after 3 years, performing and rocking out.
It was very cool to see her with her red electric guitar, swaying around and doing rock star poses, which seemed very natural for her.
She played a few numbers on her keyboard too.
So that sounds pretty awesome :)
February 23rd 2005:
BIG apology site hasn't been updated in really long. Recently Marion did a chat with some lucky ppl. I'll try to post the transcript as soon as possible. Also Marion entered a new journal entry. Everything is really gonna get going soon. It won't be long before the first single comes out and Marion is gonna be everywhere! Pretty exciting stuff.
Anyways, i'll try to be a good girl and as soon as possible update more parts of the site and maybe even get a new layout.
December 9th 2004:

And this article on nrk.no, i have no idea what it says but here ya go:
October 12th 2004:
VERY SORRY for the major lack of updates, my computer had been broken for a while and when i got it back i just didn't really feel like doing any work on the site + there wasn't that much to update. Anyway onto the news. Today on NRK.no Marit performed 3 of her songs. They are absolutely amazing! If you weren't lucky to listen to them, check out M2M-Ultimiate.tk for an audio recording. It's 14mb big, and if you can't d/l it right away, just try again later! The songs are definetly worth listening to. Right now that's about it for the news. I'll see if i'll update more stuff later..but i'm taking it slow with the site right now :)
July 1st 2004:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Marit!!
it's her 21st birthday today, hopefully she'll have a great day :)
Check out THIS Marit Tribute made by Silvy from M2M-Ultimate
June 24th 2004:
No news yet, but i am planning to put on a new layout in a while. I only just started working on it today, so it'll be awhile before i put it up :)
June 19th 2004:
Well from what i've heard thanks to sites like Marion2u and M2M-Ultimate
Marion album looks to be really great! Max Martin co-wrote and produced the whole album with Marion, which he normally doesn't do!
Here's an article (translated by Marcus)
Marion Ravn is soon finished!
For a long time the former M2M star, Marion Ravn has been in the studio. She has written and produced songs for her upcoming solo album together with no other than Max Martin. He has never made an entire album with an artist, but only a couple of songs.
Marion Raven should feel honored by Max Martins commitment.
The swedish paper "BON" thinks Marion will become the biggest popstar in Norway, of all time.
Soon we will get the answer!!!
So that sounds very good, i also added a few links you can see them at the WWW page :)
June 11th 2004:
Great Marion news! (from MARION2Ua great marion fansite by Kim!
There's an norwegian magazine called "Her og Na" and it contains an article about Marion.
They explain why the album wasn't released in last year December.
It's because Atlantic is being sold to Warner Music. The article also contains new promo pictures for Marion's new album. If you live in Norway go buy the album and scan the pics!
Hopefully we'll see some of it soon! The US fans are very lucky cos the album will be released there first!
On another note i made a new website, a fansite for my lovely friend Silvy from m2m-ultimate :)
You can check it out right here: SILVY FAN
Right now only the index,facts,faves and quotes pages are up, but there will be more soon!

A little article thingie i found at hitsville.no:
Marion Raven - Two weeks with max weather!
We had the pleasure of having Marion and her manager Thomas here for two weeks in late August. At times she also had her nice family visiting. Same goes for the paparazzis and TV crews, though they weren't all that wekcome...
We made six songs with her, and had a fantastic time while working. Credits to manager Thomas Erdtman for the cozy chats, fine meals and his caring presence. That said, he probably spent most of his time fishing and hunting. We wish you the best of luck as you strike your deals and otherwise prepare for the future. We'd certailny wish to have you here again, down by the border...
also 2 new pics from the same site, of marion in the studio
thanks to Frodio for the links :)

Sure she does! The site is up and running!
2 Do you still reply to emails cause i was thinking of sending you one.

Sorry about the lack of updated. My computer got all messed up so.
Anyway, i'm back again and i found 2 nice articles at my friend's (Silvy) site,m2m-ultimate, regarding Marion. It looks to be a great album!;
"Finished with new CD"
Marion and producer Max Martin worked on it for over a year.
Atlantic Records is comfirming that she is a global priority to the company.
Only a handful European artists are in a situation where they're directly signed to a major company on the worlds biggest market.
"I've been involved with the album since the first day, but I still get amazed every time I hear her sing." says Andrew Feigenbaum, who's the main in charge for artists at Atlantic.
"Marion's a global priority for Atlandtic. We have the songs now that will make her an international star." Says Feigenbaum
No release date has been set yet, officially.
"I have heard the songs hundreds of times the past months. every time I get goosebumps. Something I cant say about the songs I hear on the radio these days." Says Feigenbaum.
Responsibility for the mixing of the album has been handed to the Swede, Michael Ilbert, who's known to be working with - The Hellacopters(Swedish), The Nomads(Swedish), Sator(Swedish) and The Wannadies(Swedish) - But the guy has also produced Celine Dion, The Cardigans(Swedish), Roxette(Swedish), Ulf Lundell(Swedish), and norwegian names such as Vibeke Saugestad and Bel Canto.
"We couldn't have got a better production team than Max Martin and his crew." Feigenbaum explains.
Max Martin Producing Norwegian Talent
The swedish producer and songwriter Max Martin is working on introducing the norwegian talent Marion Ravn to the world of music. Martin has been working with the 19-year old singer's debut album for over a years and it's finished to be released writes Verdens Gang.
Marion Ravn, who made up the one half of the split up duo M2M, has herself written all the song material that is produced by Max Martin. According to the release plan, the album is going to be relased in USA in the summer and after that to be launched all over the world. Besides Max Martin there is another swede involved in the production. Michael Ilbert, who earlier been with among others Roxette, Hellacopters and Wannadies, has mixed the album which is being relased through the record company Atlantic.

Two days ago Marion posted a new message again;
Christmas is close, and I've been laying in bed for two days now being REALLY sick. I hate being sick, it is so boring and you're not capable of doing anything! But I'm optimistic about it all, and I should be out of bed for Christmas Eve. Earlier this week I went to see one of my favourite bands in concert, "The Strokes"..they were really great. :p Other than that it's all good!!
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

December 2nd 2003:
Marion left a little message today at the board which said;
Well, I'm pretty sure we have the first single, but you never know..it might get changed. They just told me it won't be any single out until spring time..'cause the album is not totally done yet. So I am sorry that you have to wait for so long..
I'm not sure about the video yet.. M.
So that isn't really great news, it means we have to wait even longer to hear Marion's songs :(
Well other then that i'm trying to slowly get the galleries up, but it will take some time, so sorry!
November 13th 2003:
Well i totally neglected (sp?) this site for quite a while..but right now I am really busy trying to finish it all real soon!
Still there's not much news around Marion, but according to a very lucky fan called Marcus who got to meet her in Sweden and even listen to some songs, it all sounds really good! So i'm pretty excited about it, and if all goes well the first single will (probably) be out around next month and the album in 2004!!
September 29th 2003:
Still quiet around Marion..she's working hard on her album :)
September 10th 2003:
Message from Marion:
I am SO SORRY I hardly have time to come talk to you all at the board anymore
But remember, it's for a good cause...my new record! It's been going really well in the studio.
I will tell you more details when I can. I'm at home in Norway, cause i'm sick
I got the fever and everything. I hate being sick.
So I spend my time watching VH1 or reading "Prozac nation"..or practising
the new songs on the guitar. I also finally got to get a good look at my
birthday gifts and card from you! (I haven't spend much time at home at all!)
And I just wanna say thank you very much. You are the best!
I know it's a lot of waiting and not much news...but thanks for sticking around for me
Tons of love from Marion :)
