Born on Long Island, Mary Ann started playing music at a young age with a strong jazz and blues influences learned from her uncle who taught her how to play guitar. She then started playing in the college coffeehouse scene on Long Island and through most of New York State and Colorado as a solo performer and as a vocalist in a number of small bands. She had the privilege of opening for Harry Chapin on a few occasions in the 70s, and traveled across the country, paying her way by busking in bus stations and playing in dusty dives. After an almost thirty year hiatus, she has started writing and performing again and has shared the stage with many talented musicians. She lives in Northern New York on the Canadian border. Since stepping back on stage, she has played in a number of concert venues throughout the Adirondacks & northern regions of the state, and has received  local public radio, as well as national and international  air time with the release of her 1st album Running Out of Time in February 2014.

Her  album  ~ Restless Heart ~ released March 8, 2016. Following its release she has enjoyed a year of solo and duo gigs with Tas Cru, and has played a number of gigs and festivals in Canada and  Northeast U.S. including the NY State Blues Festival as a member of Tas Cru and the Tortured Souls. She has also spent a good part of the summer in the studio working on background vocals for Tas' Simmered and Stewed album.

2017 started with a trip to the IBCs (International Blues Challenge) singing with Tas Cru and the Tortured Souls starting at Uncle Bo's in Topeka, KS and ending up in Memphis at the Rum Boogie Cafe on Beale Street. In early February her album Restless Heart  was nominated for a SAMMY (Syracuse Area Music Awards) for best Americana Album of 2016. Mary Ann is now in the process of writing for a new album and will also be back in the studio lending her voice to another album project that is in the making.

From sultry blues, to folk and Americana, always soulful, this eclectic performer always delivers a true, honest, performance. Sure to please.
