ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What do you get when you cross Texas twang with Northwest folk?

Ask Mare Wakefield, Eugene Oregon-based singer/songwriter who spent her formative years in East Texas.

Mare's songs and vocals combine the spunk and drawl of Texas with the tenderness and introspection of the Northwest, and audience members are moved to tears and laugh out loud at the same show.

Don't miss your chance to hear the country-flavored songs such as "Sewing Machine" and the the nostalgic tribute "Ghost of John Denver," as well as the vocal versatility displayed in the haunting "Fighting" and the powerful title track, "Factory."

"Wakefield has a clear, energetic and confident voice that bounces off the band's thick walls quite well and even holds humor," says Scott Lewis of Portland's Rocket Magazine.

She has a vocal range and power that is impressing audiences throughout the Northwest, and conveys her songs with strength and tenderness.

Check out the music of this fresh performer before she gets jaded by the music industry.

Zachary Kelton

A truly gifted performer releases another wonderful CD.
Mare has done it again with her second full-length album, Factory. From the fun rhythms and lyrics of "Run Me Over" to the questioning "Church in Chicago," Factory is at once bright and brooding. A must have for any folk enthusiast.

Frank Landrum

Factory - a gamut of emotions
Factory, a Mare Wakefield masterpiece, climbs the emotional ladder. New Boy, new love optimism; Church in Chicago, life's nostalgia; Sewing Machine, the caring roots of family; Ghost of John Denver, hopefulness of youth; and my favorite, Run Me Over, the despair of lost relationships (I played it all day on the anniversary of my divorce).

Brent Floren

Mare Wakefield is a powerful and mature songwriter.
Factory is an eloquent and moving record that combines
contemporary and traditional influences, resulting in
a sound that can only be described as-Mare Wakefield.She strikes
me as an emotioally complex person who can write songs that
are tender, funny, sad and pissed-off...sometimes all in the
course of one tune. What I find extremely refreshing about
Wakefield is that she sings and plays with a sincere passion
and intensity that is totally void of false affectation. As
you listen to her songs,you trust what she is telling you.
Related to this, I am impressed by the scope and content of
her lyrics. The songs on Factory seem very personal, but at
the same time they make a lot of room for the listener.
Some of my favorite songs are Factory(a great song to listen
to in the car), Sewing Machine(epic-like),Comfort,
and Run Me Over and Let Me Bleed to Death(the song is
even better than the title). I look forward to hearing more
from Mare Wakefield.

Take a journey that you won't ever forget!
Every song Mare has written is so real and sensual, and leaves the listener
wanting more. The stories, the feelings, and the music awaken of the soul.
It makes you feel like you are a part of her life, and taking her endless
journeys. Thank you Mare!

Brilliantly crafted songwriting meets gifted humor.
I really enjoyed the dichotomy between her silly humor and sweet, tender songwriting. Enjoy with a glass of sweet white wine!
