Their love of country music was passed on to Mary and later she was greatly influenced by John Denver, Peter Paul & Mary, Joan Baez and Dylan to name only a few. Mary's style leans more toward folk, country & easy listening, although she enjoys most music genres including some international music. Singing in choirs has always been another part of Mary's singing enjoyment, starting with gradeschool, highschool, then church choirs.
Songwriting is so unbelievably thrilling to her, when a new original is "born", it feels as though someone has handed her a very precious & unexpected gift.
(More of mary's CD's are listed in the left column under "links" - "Mary Atlanta Website".)
Mary's voice and style has been likened to that of Joan Baez many times by her fans. Most people describe her voice as "soothing, relaxing, mesmerizing, haunting and unique".
Please give a listen to some of the song samples and treat yourself to a delightful moment of original, peaceful, soulful fantasy.
