Aloha! I am so glad you found me and my music! It's been a lifelong passion of mine. I've been making up my own songs since before I could talk. I used to have this tape cassette recorder/player that I would record myself singing and guess what? I'm still recording myself now, producing my original music! I am inspired by Nature- especially the ocean and rivers, forests and fungi. I am fascinated by ancient wisdom teachings and mysteries of the world. I am also fascinated in the potential of human consciousness, spiritual dimensions, entheogenic plants and the intricate and intimate path of healing that each and every one of us is on. I sing with the intention for inspiring, healing, awakening and to remember the truest essence of who I am and how we are all connected. Blessed Be~
Here's a kind of concise blurb about me & my music which can be utilized for promotional purposes:
"Mary sings her soul songs from the heart and in the spirit of ceremony, with the prayer to awaken, uplift and empower those who listen. She lyrically weaves her poetic expressions of the universal human experience and the mystical and miraculous nature we are all a part of, to inspire Remembrance of true purpose and meaning in Life. Her debut album, “Nectarian” (2013) receives much praise, bringing healing and transformation to many across the globe. She has since released 6 more albums and continues to produce her own sacred visionary music from her home studio in Northern California."
And Here's a more detailed BIO...in case you are interested!
Born in Santa Cruz, California to peace loving parents that honored and nurtured her natural musical abilities, she has been singing since before she could even talk. She began piano lessons at 7, with classical training in the Suzuki Method. At 8 she began singing in schools and at large public events around Santa Cruz as part of the Peace Child Choir ensemble. At twelve her family uprooted and relocated to the Big Island of Hawaii. It is there where she taught herself ukulele and guitar and also participated in some theater. Motivated by her fascination and love of the natural world she attended University of Hawaii at Hilo and received a BA in Natural Science and Biology, and then began serving in the Education field for over ten years as a teaching assistant and substitute & specialty teacher. Thriving in the Puna Community, close to the living and growing earth, her creativity flourished and was nourished by the beauty of the wild and powerful nature around her, especially the ocean. In 2006, after returning from living a wild adventure-filled musical year in Boston, she began producing her own music.
