Mary Sigalas re-imagines the classic jazz/blues from the 1920's through the 1950's with the deeply personal depth of a contemporary alternative artist. Into the performance of classics, Mary weaves originals that meld her love of jazz and international flavors with her unforgettable vocals. Soulful and bluesy, smooth and sensitive are all common descriptive words for Sigalas’s delivery.
With her 2014 EP release, “Certainty”, she has been taking her performance on a tour of the US and Europe. Some highlights in the last year include Mary performing in Ireland and Northern Ireland with Scott Flanigan, Nick Scott, Linley Hamilton, and Kevin Lawlor Trio. Churchill Grounds, a world-renowned high-end jazz club, has become a regular venue for Sigalas as she collaborates with highly-revered artists such as Kevin Bales, Craig Shaw and Marlon Patton. A 2015 performance at Carnegie Hall (choral - Mozart's "Solemn Vespers") was followed by several guest spots with Grammy Award-Winning Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks in subsequent trips to NYC.
Mary is currently busy with jazz shows after spending a few months composing new songs for her upcoming album, digging deeper into classics and being even more inspired with travel to Europe in January and February 2015.
As of May, 2014, Mary has received her fourth nomination for Best Jazz Artist from Flagpole Magazine.
“This is music that makes you want to settle in with a good glass of whiskey and soak in skillful arrangements that recall some of America's greatest jazz numbers. It's a warm, delicious musical treat in an indie rock town.” — Julie Phillips, Athens Banner-Herald.
