One of the most distinctive voices in modern music has been singer Mary Fahl. While we love the “ethereal girls” on Echoes, Mary Fahl is powerhouse singer whose roots are more Grace Slick and Sandy Denny than Elizabeth Fraser and Suzanne Vega. She came to renown fronting October Project back in the 90s. But when that group broke up, Fahl started writing her own music. And in case you thought she was another female singer-songwriter, she also recorded an explosive cover album of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon from front to back. Now she has a new CD of original music, Love and Gravity that includes a song written for the audio book of Anne Rice’s The Wolves of Midwinter. She’s actually a touchstone in the book when one of the characters remembers listening to October Project when he was younger. With a full electric band, she comes into the Echoes Living Room and unleashes her vocal power live playing songs from Pink Floyd, October Project and her new CD, Love and Gravity. Hear it tonight on Echoes.
