Mary McGuinness

September 13, 2021 7:00 pm PDT

Second Stage

Doors Open: 6:30 pm


After releasing her album Prodigal last year – followed by stand-alone covers of Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler” and Bread’s “If” when the lockdown hit – McGuiness returned to the studio, this time with producer Joel Shearer (Dido, Annie Lennox, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Joe Cocker, Damien Rice, Michael Buble, Sarah McLachlan).
Mary McGuinness’ voice is a force of nature, at once combining Joni Mitchell’s multi-octave range, the warmth and heart of Karen Carpenter and the earthy purity of Emmylou Harris. Born in Fort Hood, TX, to an Irish-Scottish Green Beret Father, and Korean Mother. McGuinness spent time in Korea and Texas, and grew up with her Grandparents in Long Island, NY. A high school music teacher took Mary under her wing and encouraged her to pursue singing. She studied classical voice at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music – which she put herself through with commercials, waitressing, and a stint on Broadway.
McGuinness has toured through the US and supported the likes of TRAIN, Kenny Loggins, Shawn Colvin, Counting Crows and Gavin DeGraw. She has written chart topping singles on Billboard and released four studio albums under another project.
She circled back to her birth name and music she loved best on 2020’s Prodigal.
These upcoming new songs shine a light on her influences, everyone from The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and Linda Ronstadt to Cat Stevens, Willie Nelson and The Beatles.
“’Gonna Feel It Again’ is what I told myself during the lockdown,” she says. “I just kept reminding myself, life is a cycle. Sometimes you have to push through the dark times, to get to the light on the other side. The good times always come back around.
