Biography

Mary McPage is one of the finest female Blues Singers in the Pacific Northwest. She will blow you away! When Mary opens her mouth to sing, people do a double take. "I had to see where that voice was coming from and I still can't believe it's coming out of you!" Influenced by country, rock and torch, McPage knows how to sell a song. Be it a standard or one of her original compositions this sassy singer creates performances that range from inane to intense.

The band is smokin’, but it’s McPage who lights the fire. With her raw, emotionally charged vocals, she works the crowd into a frenzy. She let’s ‘em know they are alive and that life is good! Mary takes it from kitten to volcano and back again. She delivers the tasty tunes that audiences have come to expect from her.

In 1994, Mary sang with the original-alternative band OZMOSiS. The ROCKET Magazine called the band "choice" and stated, "Anyone who loves to hear a good, strong female singer must hear McPage."

In 1995, Mary found the blues, or maybe the blues found her. A blues singer was born. McPage says, "I never want to sing any other type of music."

In 1999, Mary released an acoustic blues CD – In Dog Years, with the group BLUE HOO. The CD landed her an invitation to appear on the WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, nationally and internationally (P.R.I.) syndicated program. Taped live and broadcast out of Lexington, KY, her humor and original songs were a hit with the live audience. ("You don't have to be famous to appear on WoodSongs, you have to be good").

Check out The Mary McPage Band. Mary and the Brothers fire it up and keep it going all night long. The best thing about this band is their incredible energy. They connect and get their audiences dancing and singing along, early on and don’t let up until they are good & ready!

The Mary McPage band is a stripped down high energy, three-piece combo that delivers Blues, old skool style R&B, and a dash of funk and good old rock-n-roll.
