Her new recording is a triumph not only as a reflection and victory over adversity but as architecture for healing and change

“Every scene has its bright fleeting highlights, its fickle wave of each generation, and its longtime anchors, but through the scene, I’ve known and loved, in Duluth MN, Mary Bue has been the thread that runs so effortlessly through its heart, hands, and soul. She arrived boldly and prolific. I have heard her piano climbing out the window and cascading down the central hillside neighborhood in the summer and the howl of her guitar muffled in the basement in winter. Her new recording is a triumph not only as a reflection and victory over adversity but as architecture for healing and change. I don’t let myself be lifted by just anyone, but I can trust Mary. She means it.”

“…true representation of what our current world is going through and at the same time, how love is always a timeless message.”
