She formed her own Indie record label, RedBird Records in 1998. She was nominated and inducted in 2010 by Blues great, Jimmy Lloyd Rea, into the Blues Hall of Fame as a Great Blues Artist from Tallahassee, FL. The following year she was inducted again into the Blues Hall of Fame as the Ambassador to Tallahassee, FL.
Mary was born and raised in Tallahassee, FL and has always had a passion for music and has been performing for over 30 years with various local and regional acts. A review of Mary's debut CD 'Rottweiler Blues' by Blues Revue magazine, compared her voice to Koko Taylor and Lou Ann Barton. Singing throughout her childhood Mary also knew she wanted to learn to play guitar. She received her first guitar when she was 12 years old and began teaching herself to play with a Mel Bay book and by watching others play. It was not easy for a left handed person to play right handed but, Mary persevered.
She later moved to Atlanta. GA where she became part of the Great Atlanta Blues Revue and also, where she stood on the Capitol steps and sang and played to a local and National audience, both television and syndicated radio, as her part of helping the law to be changed in Georgia against paternity fraud.
Mary's 2nd CD 'Distant Star' is a collection of 13 songs which covers a range of Blues and Southern Rock. Both CDs can be bought at CDBABY.com as well as most online music stores and features her effortless vocals on original material as well as stinging guitar.
