Invite Mary Simon over for one night and her storytelling will make you cry, make you dance and will sing you to sleep. With a certain je ne c’est quois of lyrical sensibility, melodious composition and timeless storytelling, you will want to invite her back, or better yet never have her leave. Mary Simon’s formula is simple, time-tested. With five albums behind her, the Hamilton singer/songwriter’s powerful voice and vision have contributed to years of touring and creative explorations.
With years of playing every venue you can imagine from churches to bars and busking to theatre concerts. Mary Simon wants to engage her audience and inspire them with music. “One of my biggest joys come when people are singing along,” she says. “Music has the power to unify people when they do”.
Mary Simon has a few other projects on the go. Her band Mississippi Bends brings the North-Americana flavour to her original tunes with the sweet guitar tones of Andrew Aldridge. You can visit their website at www.mississippibends.com. In addition to this band she has a side project with her two dear friends Ginger St James and Justine Fischer call The Pistolettes.
