Product Description

CD Description

Debut album from English singer-songwriter Mary Leay. CD includes lyric book. Produced by Michael J McEvoy. Recorded and mixed at Wincraft and Air-Edel studios, England.


Beautifully subtle vocal harmonies, like Everything But The Girl, only not as depressing, and with better tunes. --Steven Poole, The Guardian

Exquisite, memorable songs with the voice of an angel. --Annie Windley, Get Rhythm Magazine

Not just a new voice but a new Voice. It can break your heart and heal it sometimes at exactly the same time. --Philip Ridley, Author and Film Director

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible voice 5 April 2012
Verified Purchase
I've heard Mary play live many times and her voice is spectacular, so I've been really looking forward to this release. It's is a great solo début - I've been listening to it exclusively for a week now, so hopefully that says something! I'm not sure it's possible to capture the power and emotion of her performance on a recording, but since she hasn't offered to play my front room, I'm glad there's now a CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cracking debut 26 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
For those of you who haven't been lucky enough to hear Mary Leay before, this is a great introduction.

Mary has a voice akin to Eva Cassidy, which she puts to great effect on this album.

It's strength is in depth; It's richly produced, with strings and delicate guitar (with some Nashville influences showing) throughout, but they never get in the way of Mary's voice or the quality of the songwriting, which is a strength also.

There are hints of folk, country (Laura Cantrell springs to mind, which is no bad thing), even in some places Beth Orton.

For The Last Time, the title track is a slow burner, which opens out to a terrific duet latterly and This Day, Albatross and Almost Home are also particular highlights.

This is the sort of album you'll want to curl up to, lights on low, late at night, and it comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion and pain... 26 Mar 2012
Beautiful, atmospheric and with searing vocals that cut through your heart and melt it all at the same time. Quality writing and lyrics. An absolute must.
