Mary Lambert is good at two things; crying and singing. Nowhere is this better reflected than on her debut EP ‘letters don’t talk’ released in July of 2012. Burrowed away with her friends in the woods of Sequim, Washington recording with the production team of Dungeness, she spent 2 years finessing the heartbreaking collection of songs. In ‘letters don’t talk’, Lambert has carved a niche for herself, winding profound lyricism around breathy, haunting melodies.
As a performer, Lambert exemplifies the traditions of a singer/songwriter while melding a background in spoken-word. This status was cemented when the lesbian singer-songwriter paired up with the internationally acclaimed hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to help write and sing their revolutionary single, “Same Love”. The track, an honoring of gay marriage, has led Mary to tour nationally with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, allowed her to reach millions by performing live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, VH1, and garnered tens of millions of views on YouTube. “Same Love” has reached double platinum in Australia, charted #1 in January, and has peaked at #89 on Billboard. It is no wonder that Mary has become one of the most talked about new artists in Seattle.
