The bastard son of a Lynyrd Skynyrd, Deftones and Led Zeppelin threesome in the middle of a Metallica concert by the beer vendor.

Biography

Selling Mary began in January of 2000 originally in the backwoods of Bugtussle, Alabama in the basement of a church. Three upstanding young gentlemen, Adam Callaway, Todd Willoughby and Peter Tubbs, decided to form a band after meeting years before at a local marching band clinic. The group began paying there dues and quickly established a small but loyal following.

At the end of 2004 the band picked up Clay Gaddis, a talented guitarist from Meridian, Mississippi and then in 2006 the band added seasoned bassist, Aaron Brook, to the fray.

The group has had substantial success in the Alabama music scene and much of the southeast U.S. including occupying a prime-time spot on the Homegrown stage of City Stages Festival 2006, The City Stages Miller Lite Stage in 2007, opening for Korn and Hell Yeah at the Oak Mountain Amphitheater, Flyleaf, 12 Stones and Rehab at Zydeco and several more. Selling Mary has also had several songs played on local and internet radio stations over the years.

One can expect a diverse and interesting sound with influences ranging from Deftones to Lynyrd Skynyd. The band pulls from many genres to create a unique mix of classic rock, jazz, metal, funk crossed with a definite southern swagger. When you come to a Selling Mary show, you can expect a top-notch performance and a killer time with a band that lives to rock your face off.....

Lyrics

Elbow Deep

Written By: Selling Mary

Elbow Deep

Sin….
It’s human nature to taste what he can’t have
So why deny yourself?
To hell with your right and your wrong
The words they told you Sunday were lies
You’ll have to trust me
I am what makes you human
I am…… SIN
How could you go on liar, living with yourself?
Deny the fact that yours is mine?
I am the natural, elbow deep in the affairs of man
I never ask repentance, I never question what you say
I am the source of thinking…on your own anyway
I am Belial; I’m the Son of Perdition
There are many religions, but they all agree;
I will not hesitate to cast the first stone
I will not show remorse when the target turns cold
I am the anti-hero
I am the underdog
I am instinct personified…..SIN
How could you go on liar, living with yourself?
Deny the fact that yours is mine?
I am the natural, elbow deep in the affairs of man
I’m the hole in what they sell you
I’m the truth;
You were born to sin
How could you go on liar, living with yourself?
Deny the fact that yours is mine?
I am the natural, elbow deep in the affairs of man
How could you go on liar, living with yourself?
Deny the fact that yours is mine?
I am the natural; SIN
