Boat With No Oars

by Mary Bue

When you mix an empty, echo-ey stone cathedral, a small spaced-heated room cluttered with weird instruments, a bunch of talented musicians and a love sick, heart-achey, singing-in- the-rain kind of girl, you get "boat with no oars."
Genre: Pop: Piano

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mary Bue likes creaky clanky pianos and falling asleep playing guitar. She wants to sing to you about what she's cooking for dinner or what she dreamt about last night. Sometimes carthartic, sometimes joyous and always bittersweet, this newly transplanted minneapolitan is making a soft winter nest of music for you.

Blend the sound of Ben Folds' joyous piano pop, Carole King's earthy soul and Tori Amos' quirky, intense intimacy and you'll get an idea of what Miss Bue sounds like. In her teenage days, songs were born out of locking herself in her bedroom with notebooks and her fender squire with a hot pink strap (ask her, she still has it). Eleven years later, the twenty-five year old Bue has been the recipiant of two artist residencies in Florida, nominated for Best Local Folk Act in Providence, RI, toured nationally, led songwriting workshops and independently released two full length albums with the third to be released APRIL 7th, 2007 in Minneapolis. Her first album "Where the Monarchs Circled" (2001), was reviewed by Low's Alan Sparhawk who said "While the last ten years have seen a good handful of new piano-and-voice artists who are endlessly mimicked, Bue has a unique feel of her own in her songs." Her latest release is a mash of mary's songs and production; a bunch of wonderful musicians from Duluth and Minneapolis and a few super talented sound engineers: Eric Swanson (Sacred Heart - Duluth), Chris Mara (Nashville) and finally Mike Whitney & Tom Herbers from Third Ear Studio in Minneapolis.

This pixie haired troubador will soon be coming to a town near you since she's paired up with Ripple Entertainment LLC and Cephalopod Records. And more songs are sure to come from her travels as she tends to write lots of poems on the road. Be sure to buy her a coffee or a nice glass of red wine next time she sings in your town!

Pick This Up Now
Wow, was I pleasantly suprised when I popped in this disc by Minneapolis based Mary Bue. The songs are beautiful, catchy, and will remain with you. I think she's one of those musicians that you'll see live and scan your local paper to see when she's coming back next. Phenomenol effort!

Trica Miller

As good as her show
One of the best albums I have listened to in awhile. I love the lyrics and her voice. I have had the CD for over a week now and it is still in my player, I am not ready to take it out yet. Ready to see her in concert again. Soon!

Patrick O'Neill

Wonderfully stimulating and intimate!!
Mary covers a range of emotions and makes you feel part of the conversation. I love the feeling and soul of this CD.

Becky Thompson
