BandPopAdult Contemporary

Singer/Actress Mara Davi and Pianist/Composer Adam Waite are the creators of Mara and the Bitter Suite. Their debut album, "Unspoken" features Davi's soaring vocals balancing atop Waite's calculated and intense piano work; the result a unique mix of singer/songwriter, folk and jazz.


Singer/Actress Mara Davi ("Smash" [NBC], "Blue Bloods" [CBS], "White Christmas", "The Drowsy Chaperone", "A Chorus Line" [Broadway]) and Pianist/Composer Adam Waite met while recording Broadway's Carols for a Cure in 2006. After collaborating on multiple concerts for Birdland, Ars Nova, and Lyrica Chamber Orchestra, they decided it was time to write their own music and find their own sound. In the fall of 2011, they asked their friends to join in on the fun and get in the recording studio. They became Mara and the Bitter Suite.

Their debut album, "Unspoken" has been praised for its "brilliant mix of talents and sound," that's "deeply musical, bordering on spiritual." (Wally's World, 12/26/12). The "talent and sensitivity in their songs that make them stand out"(Wordkrapht, 1/16/13) is the defining trait of the album's nine unique tracks, blending Waite's music with Davi's lyrics.
