If you missed former October Project singer Mary Fahl talking about her new album, Love and Gravity and why she doesn’t sound like an ethereal girl singer, you can hear it in the NPR “Echoes” Podcast.
About Mary Fahl
“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 chamber-pop group OCTOBER PROJECT, a band with a sound that was a perfect mixture of Fleetwood Mac, Jefferson Airplane and Adele. The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahl’s awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication.
Since leaving October Project, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyd’s 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. Now Mary returns with her album Love and Gravity and reaches October Project heights with soaring vocals and great songwriting to match. Her performance will include “Exiles”, a song written for Anne Rice’s new audiobook The Wolves of Midwinter and a stunning cover of the Joni Mitchell classic “Both Sides Now.”
