In 2012, Mary Lambert was working three restaurant jobs when her life changed. An aspiring singer-songwriter, cellist, spoken word artist, and newly graduated with a BA in music composition from Cornish College of the Arts, she had begun to make a name for herself around Seattle, performing slam poetry and fusing a talk-singing style into her intimate performances. She received a phone call from a friend who was working with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on their debut album, The Heist. Macklemore and Lewis were struggling to write a chorus for their new song, a marriage-equality anthem, called “Same Love”.
Writing and singing the hook led to two Grammy nominations for “Song Of The Year” and “Album Of The Year”. Mary soonafter signed with Capitol Records, where she released her debut album “Heart on My Sleeve”. The New York Times called her debut album “surprisingly refreshing and severely personal”.
A bedroom-punk band from New York City, who — given their verge-of-tears verses — sounds like they’d be more comfortable hiding underneath a stairwell in upstate New York.
