“…..the freshest, most intriguing and joyful music making I’ve experienced in years” Cameron Undy, musician and creator /owner of 505 Jazz Club
Mary Heart has firmly established herself as one of Australia’s favourite Jazz musicians. She is a multi-instrumentalist, playing double bass, cello or bass guitar whilst singing the roof off. As well as performing your most beloved Jazz and 50’s rock and roll classics, Mary reinterprets today’s most popular music in a retro style. She is a jazz singer with great instinct for pop, breaking down the walls
between genres by blending the old with the new. Let her cast a spell of dance halls and speakeasies with the hot sounds of New Orleans, rockabilly rhythms and endless energy.
With a postgraduate degree from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Mary is a highly trained professional with 10 years of performing experience. She has played all over the world at venues such as the Sydney Opera House, London’s Ronny Scotts, and the B.I.M Institute in Amsterdam. Mary has performed with many music legends including New York’s jazz drumming sensation, John Riley, and Australian pop legends, The Whitlams.
