Mary Ann Redmond

I’m from Richmond VA where at 15 I got to sing with my two brother’s top 40 band for a few years before heading off to college. I studied as a voice major at VCU for a year operatically and got to be in the 4th jazz band. Not a ringing endorsement, but nonetheless, it was a great school. I’ve been in bands ever since covering all kinds of music and writing my songs as well. As for five years from now, I hope to be playing, singing teaching and doing what I love.

”Gifted with a deep throaty alto register that's as smooth as bourbon sliding down the esophagus and as emotive as a soul singer ruminating over human vulnerabilities, Mary Ann Redmond is a one of a kind vocalist. Accompanied by Paul Langosch on bass and Jay Cooley on keyboards, Redmond's trio delves into the facets of modern blues spurred by bursts of jumping jive and clad in shades of jazz on their new recording Compared to What.” -YAHOO.com album review by Susan Frances

Mary Ann Redmond, Paul Langosch And Jay Cooley – COMPARED TO WHAT: When I cracked this CD open and listened to (just) the first few notes, I dashed off a request for an interview with Mary Ann - she is nothing short of VOLCANIC!I give Mary Ann & crew a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating right at the top – 5.00! -IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION, CD REVIEW by Rotcod Zzaj

Nils Lofgren describes singer/songwriter Mary Ann Redmond as a great, great singer, `an exciting vocal talent” “....Redmond is wowing club audiences as a completely formed stylist, who sings heartfelt ballads and funky tunes with equal ease and enthusiasm in an alto voice that soars effortlessly to soprano range.” She is joined by the wonderful Paul Langosch on bass and Jay Cooley on piano in an eclectic collection of songs from composers such as Joni Mitchell, Irving Berlin, Leonard Cohen; also included is Mary Ann Redmond & Todd Wright's hit song, “Love Me Anyway”. Amazon.com - “5.0 out of 5 stars Revisiting the standards with great style - and nothing compares” by Grady Harp
