East to the Sea

by Mary Bue

This is soothing, cathartic and quirky piano and vocal music. Full of stream of conciousness melodies with symbolic tendencies and the potential to "emotionally suckerpunch" you.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review of "East to the Sea" by Steve McPhearson from Pulse of the Twin Cities:

"It’s surprisingly easy to mess up something as simple as recording a singer playing piano. The temptation is to get the best sounding piano, the best sounding mics and the best sounding room and just let the tape roll, but Duluth-based Mary Bue has done something much more than that on this 14-track disc. Instead of the pristine and antiseptic sound that dominates so many singer/songwriters’ albums, Bue opts for ambience and grit here and it’s fantastic. The disc is shot through with a distinctly North Shore aesthetic, from the ringing chords and tinkling bells of “The Long Days” to the empty and slightly dissonant swing of “Song for Holly.” Points of reference include the more intimate moments of Sarah McLachlan and other big-voiced youngsters like our own JoAnna James. Altogether, it’s some great weekend-breakfast-making music, like you’ve woken up mid-morning on an overcast Sunday on Lake Superior by the sound of muted music, and as you wander downstairs you find Ms. Bue seated at the creaky piano in the parlor, just playing for herself."

Moira

Mary's music is wonderful.
East to the Sea is a beautiful mix of emotions and imagery sung eloquently by Ms. Bue in her sweet and powerful voice. Her songs speak of emotions we've all felt and I highly recommend this album to everyone who wants to feel something a little more real when they listen to music.

Chris Goebel

Terrific. Wonderful voice and style.
It's always kinda smugly satisfying to think you may have been among the "discoverers" of a great new talent. Mary Bue could be the next one, as east to the sea ably demonstrates. Terrific stylist, great voice and immensely entertaining. Only reservation about the CD was some variance in fidelity (or maybe just my old ears).

Sarah

This CD is beautiful.
This CD is really beautiful. I put it on when I need to work, when I need to be calmed, when I need to think, or just when I walk in the door.

Chris Tafoya

Incrdible CD, Mary Bue's voice leaves me speachless in contemplation
Mary's music is heart stopping and wonderfully pleasing to the ears.
