October Project's lead vocalist returns
Sounding like no other singer of her generation” (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC-based chamber-pop group October Projet. The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahl's awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication. Since the band disbanded, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic reworking of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" for V2 Records. She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song (“Going Home”) for the Civil War epic "Gods and Generals." Mary's elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking man’s folk-pop she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto. Mary's popular Ark shows include October Project songs as well as her strong and growing corpus of originals. Come and pick up a copy of Mary's new double album, "Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House"! Rachael Sage, described by Uncut as "one part Elton John, one part Kate Bush," is tonight's opener.
