With a sophomore album on the way for 2012/2013 and a new single release to radio,
Mary Resek has taken great strides in building her music career.
Her debut album “Two In The Saddle”, released in 2008, had single releases to both Canadian and European radio, along with placing in the top 10 on the ECMA charts.
Her musical influences and country roots began at the tender age of four, when her family would gather around the Resek house for their Saturday night jams.
Her Dad, who also played in country bands, would play guitar, yodel and sing while the rest of the family would harmonize, play guitar, accordion,saxophone,violin and organ…
Her first public performances started at age seven with the school choir and then later on throughout high school performing in the school band playing saxophone.
A loyal audience and fan base quickly surfaced.
Mary realized then that country music was her true passion and audience acceptance for a budget EP recording prompted Mary to take the next big step... investing in a professionally recorded studio session. Recorded at Alberta’s Premier Studio“ The Beach Studios” in Calgary, Alberta with Producer Lanny Williamson , Mary's debut album "Two In The Saddle", was released to audiences across North America and Europe.
It reveals just a little of Mary’s “spirit” and offers a pure Traditional Country sound.
Together with her ever growing fan base and live performances , Mary is definitely showing promise in the country music industry.
Plans are currently underway to take her music to the next level with subsequent single releases to radio, and continuing to develop and spread her music and talent where ever she can with performances that are now expanding beyond her hometown of Calgary Alberta
