Stoltz: Mary Fahl

  • The Stoltz Listening Room 40 E Dover St Easton, MD, 21601 United States

Sounding like no other singer of her generation (, 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's awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication. As a solo artist, she's achieved even more exquisite heights with several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" for V2 Records; her wonderful, original studio album "The Other Side of Time" on Sony Odyssey; and her acclaimed album 'Love and Gravity'.


Now Mary returns with her album 'Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House', a collection of twenty-three tracks recorded live at one of America's oldest vaudeville theaters and winner of the Indie Acoustic Award for multi-genre 'Album of the Year'.


Fahl's elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking man?s 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'.
