THEY WIN!!!! Talked to Mary as she was just hopping a plane to head to the VMA's, it was awesome!!

Mary Lambert is good at two things; crying and singing. Nowhere is this better reflected than on her debut EP ‘Letters Don’t Talk’ released in July of 2012. Burrowed away with her friends in the woods of Sequim, Washington recording with the production team of Dungeness, she spent 2 years finessing the heartbreaking collection of songs. In ‘Letters Don’t Talk’,
As a performer, Lambert exemplifies the traditions of a singer/songwriter while melding a background in spoken-word. With the powerful body-image poem “I Know Girls (Body Love)” going viral on youtube, Letters firmly established Mary as a formidable unsigned artist. This status was cemented when the lesbian singer-songwriter paired up with the multi-platinum and VMA nominated Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to help write and sing their revolutionary single, “Same Love”.  The track, an honoring of gay marriage, has led Mary to tour nationally with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and allowed her to reach millions by performing live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, VH1, and The Colbert Report. “Same Love” has hit platinum in the US and is consistently rising in the charts, peaking at number 11 on Billboard.  It is no wonder that Mary has become one of the most talked about new artists.

Mary graduated from Cornish College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition. It was at Cornish that she honed her classical composition skills, including writing a full symphony piece for the Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra.
