{Mary Bragg} ‘Tattoos and Bruises’ {Review/Giveaway}

By Thursday, June 2, 2011 84 No tags Permalink 0


After several years of growing acclaim on the New York Americana scene, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Mary Bragg reached a peak in her early career last year when she attracted overflow crowds for a residency at NYC’s famed venue The Living Room. Her latest recording,Tattoos and Bruises, grew out of that series of shows. Produced by one of the genre’s contemporary icons, Lee Alexander (Norah Jones, Amos Lee), the album was recorded and mixed at The Coop, the studio of Alexander’s long-time collaborator, Norah Jones.



‘Tattoos and Bruises’ is Mary Bragg‘s 3rd album which is coming gout June 7th! She has been compared to Patty Griffin and Shawn Colvin—and does indeed bear some stylistic resemblances to them. But she has her own unique fusion of American musical forms: folk, rock, pop, and country.

Album tracks:

1.   How and Why
2.   When Your Heart Belongs To Another
3.   Tattoos and Bruises
4.   Leave Tonight
5.   Hanging on the Wheel
6.   The General
7.   Gone
8.   Wildflower
9.   Morning Lover
10. Hurricane


Take a listen to her song ‘How & Why’ and let her voice sweep you away. At some point in that song she reminded me of Norah Jones!


How and Why by Sneakattackmedia


I really like her voice, melodic and beautiful. And her album is easy to listen to. Simply press play and go on with your daily chores Perfect for when you’re getting dinner reasy for the family or while alone enjoying a book by the fireplace…with a cup of coffee…or tea if you prefer. Or a hot chocolate in the winter days.

Truly recommend it. Still enjoying and tapping my feet to the rhythm of her voice as I type this!
