Biography

Two Hardcore San Francisco Musician Gals ‘Get a Life’
Putting Their Past behind them to Rock for God

Against all odds, not having grown up in any sort of belief system, in an area where only 17% of the population declares any sort of religious affiliation, two hard rocking women come to faith, writing an incredible album for God. Jennifer Newell and Mary Cary, both having struggled with the real, gritty rock star’s existence, found themselves drawn separately to Christianity through a series of personal tragedies, and odd/unexplainable coincidences. Warmed by the uplifting message of worship music, and openly invited to come rock at church, they began writing their spiritual journal which is called “Pray,” their pastor-blessed debut album. This duo calls the band Thankfull, available on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby.com and Digstation.com. Like most bands, live show schedule can be found on the Thankfullmusic myspace page along with “I Believe,” their well produced, lush, uplifting first single with accompanying full-on San Francisco location video and EPK directed by D.J. Marini of Combustion Studios and produced by Kristi Jo Volskis formerly of Sony Music Nashville.

“We’ve seen it all, it’s been pretty heavy duty at times, if you can imagine it, we’ve seen it, we were lucky not to get swallowed up completely like some of our dear friends. Now we’ve been blessed to find the peace of Christ healing our broken hearts” shares Mary Cary, spirited lead guitarist with pink streaked hair, and song writer for the band. “Sure some of our friends in the biz think we are totally nuts, but we feel this is a calling...” Jennifer Newell, Thankfull’s tattooed powerhouse rock vocalist, goes on to say “They say the odds are against people coming to Christ after about age 21, so this truly was amazing! I think we have a fresh look at Jesus and Christianity through new believer’s eyes, its very exciting sharing our music and devotion.” Mary continues with a big smile, “There is so much to celebrate even standing at the edge of life’s hardest times. We’re a work in progress, doing our best to live a joyful life, as close to God as we can by working on humility, sharing our music, Bible study, prayer, and helping those in need.”

These two women, both having extensive backgrounds as session players and live performance, have lent their talents to such national television campaigns as Sega, Nintendo, Got Milk, Herbal Essences, working together and individually with such notables as Aretha Franklin, Huey Lewis and the News, Michael Jackson, Chris Isaak, Whitney Houston, opening for bands like Motley Crew, Rod Stewart, Saxon, Men At Work, Berlin, Metalica, and many more, have put their past behind them, washed clean, focusing all their blessings and gifts on finding ways to share their faith and give back to God for his continuing abundant grace and forgiveness. In short, these two rocking gals got a life!
