“Sounding like no other singer of her generation” (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC- based chamber-pop group October Project. The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahls awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication. As a solo artist, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon for V2 Records and her wonderful, original studio album The Other Side of Time on Sony Odyssey. She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song (Going Home) for the Civil War epic Gods and Generals. Her most recent album Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House, winner of the Indie Acoustic Album of the Year award, is a collection of twenty-four tracks recorded live at one of Americas oldest vaudeville theaters that captures the soaring, soul-permeating vocals and musical breadth that makes the Mary Fahl concert experience what the Portland Press called soul-permeating. The show was filmed for PBS and is currently airing on PBS affiliates around the country. Fahl’s elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking mans folk-pop which she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto that Boston Globe critic Steve Morse calls a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms. Her music appeals to a wide range of musical enthusiasts, including a large, loyal fan base of Mary Fahl evangelists.
