"Lonely love" Available now

On her sophomore release, Mary McAvoy transitions from the softer singer-songwriter side of pop of debut LP Wanderlust to a more synth-infused, r&b influenced sound with her ballad-worthy soulful pipes still intact. 

The Boston-based artist’s latest effort was born from disillusionment with everything from the broken mental health system to her own musical career. Grappling with family crises, self care, and treading water artistically, Mary threw herself into the studio. “I used songwriting as a way to make sense of the extreme emotional complexities of watching a loved one battle severe mental illness. Prioritizing my own mental wellbeing was a struggle but music has always been my healer.”

Mary’s new songs are more focused on the sonic landscape, deftly utilizing production elements to elicit the right feeling. She paints her raw emotion with atmospheric synths, ethereal vocal layers, hip hop beats, colorful arpeggios, and well-timed notes of her big-soul range.

Her first record, Wanderlust, was recorded at Boston’s Bristol Studios with Chris Billias (New Kids On The Block, Madd Scientist, Yo Yo Ma) and Ric Poulin (The Dropkick Murphy’s, Red One, Wyclef Jean). Mary’s singer-songwriter pop album was picked up by several cable networks (E!, Bravo, TLC, Discovery Channel) for a licensing deal. “I created an album that was very personal to me. Wanderlust was my first run at songwriting and the beginning of being able to see myself as a true original artist.”  Read full bio.
