Album Notes
Soulful folk music full of tasty arrangements infused with blues, rock, Indian/middle eastern, and traditional jazz flavors. Spinning the Sky, the debut album from Mary Hocks, features great players from the Carolinas. Produced by Chris Rosser at Hollow Reed Studio in Asheville, NC.

"Spinning the Sky has a seamless, soulful groove that I find very intoxicating. Jazzy at times, folkie at others, even when dipping into Indian or Island flavors, it remains consistent to an overall laid back vibe. Mary's songs tumble forth with poetic grace revealing insights that invite the listener to read along as she sings. She is a marvelous singer and songwriter."

Music critic Michael Miller, author of Hootie! How the Blowfish put the Pop Back in Pop Rock (1997) and contributing author to Making Notes: Music of the Carolinas (2008).

Spinning the Sky
this is a very fine album. Musically it is first rate, but what makes the album superior is the beautiful poetry of the lyrics--truly an extraoridinary production. I hope we hear more from this talented young woman.


A very solid album in the folk tradition. Weaving blends of jazz, pop rock, and folk, “Spinning the Sky” spins a solid eclectic mix of musical vocals in a tradition reminiscent of the great Judy Henske. Close your eyes and spin images of sky, earth, wood, and smoldering fire.

Loved the whole CD! My favorite cut is "Hand in a Glove" - jazzy - GREAT!
