"Mary's voice is not like any other. She has the beauty and poise of a trained singer with the rugged edge of a good old fashioned vaudevillian songbird. Her stage presence was absolutely incandescent." Evan Meena at Word4Music
"Rev. Mary knows how to belt — as well as how to growl and occasionally roar. She can also switch to slow and sexy and to feverishly romantic. Her voice is robust, lusty, and well-suited for songs about female empowerment." Jed Ryan at The Huffington Post
Hailed as a "talented vocal artist with a vast and varied repertoire," Mary is a vocalist with decades of experience in Jazz, Blues, Standards, Opera, and Pop Music – of all eras – from turn of last century to turn of this century. And Mary is comfortable singing them all!
Mary has been studying and performing since she was a little girl. She sings in Italian, French, German … and English. Her rendition of Ave Maria is a favorite at weddings and other religious functions, and her stirring version of Danny Boy – in English AND Gaelic – has been the highlight of many special occasions. Mary has sung at venues including St Stephens, Merkin Hall, CAMI Hall, the Donnell Library, the New York International Fringe Festival, The Duplex Cabaret, the West End Lounge, Freddy's in Brooklyn, Otto's, Piano's in the Lower East Side, New York's Producer's Club, and a soloist at the famed Blues & Swing Festival at the Augusts Heritage Center in Elkins, West Virginia.
Mary can come as a solo act with PA system plus lap-top computer, complete with a wide variety of tracks, so intimate spaces are not a problem ... or for an additional charge, can arrange musicians, including Pianists, Guitarists, Drummers, Banjo, and other string and percussion … even Harpists and Harmonica Players!
A member of the Manhattan Association of Cabaret and Clubs, Mary has full acts ready to go at any time:
Flirtations (for weddings, engagement parties, and other romantic settings);
Granny's Blue-Mers (an old time show featuring racy tunes from way-back-when);
One-Hour Mama (mix & match tunes, styles, genres, for a tailor made act perfect for any event)
Mary is more than just a voice, she is a wonderful comic and improvisational actress. Check out her performer pages on YouTube and Soundcloud.
