American Singer-Songwriter and Stylista from South Jersey. Performs to SOLD OUT audiences and music venues throughout the tri-state region and beyond!
Mary, dubbed ‘The Mother of Cool Smoke’ has immediately identifiable rich contralto vocal tonalities described as sultry, smooth and timeless in both presentation and delivery. If you listen closely, her alluring vocal tonalities are reminiscent of the late Phyllis Hyman.
Frontrunner wrote: “Mary is the kind of singer who takes hold of a song and enraptures her audience in the palm of her hands, as she delivers lyrics, phrases, melodies and harmonies in a way that only she can. Mary’s candor, honesty, humor and purity as an artist make her a rarity in this business.”
In addition to her original releases, she covers the music of Phyllis Hyman, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, H.E.R., Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Lalah Hathaway, Lizz Wright, Burt Bacharach, Oleta Adams, Ray Charles, Billie Holiday, Norah Jones, Deniece Williams, Melody Gardot, Etta James, Alita Moses, Dionne Warwick, Teena Marie, Phoebe Snow, Lynn Fiddmont, O’Jays, The Stylistics, Staple Singers, Gloria Gaynor, Cher, Trijnte Oosterhuis, Prince, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Al Wilson, Corrinne Bailey Rae, Betty Wright, Earth Wind and Fire, The Delphonics, Swing Out Sister, Captain and Tennielle, Karen Carpenter, Amy Winehouse and others!
If you or someone you know LOVES great music and lyrics, come to a performance and let Mary celebrate your life event with you! It will be a memorable evening including a serenade in song!
