Some br(easy) listening for a Saturday: Mary Stewart

mary-stewart

Yes, breezy is spelled wrong purposely. It’s supposed to be clever. I realize it’s probably not. :(

Regardless, I proclaim today Mary Stewart day. From Nova Scotia, she fits the subdued mood quite well, as I can sit back, close my eyes and relax, watching birds swoon out the window while listening to her charming music. (Note: I live in NYC, there are no birds outside my window; Just buildings. But Stewart makes me imagine such a sight.) She has such a sweet voice, which, combined with guitar, keys, and the occasional strings (plus fitting percussion), numbs the body and mind into a pleasant daze. Stewart brings us folk-driven pop in its purest form.

Catch a few songs from her self-titled, debut record, which dropped May 1. Oh and by the way, she’s shared the stage with such wonderful acts as Jill Barber, Wintersleep, and several others. She’s one to keep on eye on.

  • Mary Stewart is to Music as Bacon is to MMM. People say that over consumption is bad for your heart, but really, who can deny Bacon?
