Hi, I’m Mary.
I like to sing and write songs and poems and dance (badly). I’m probably most known for being the big crying lady who sang and wrote “Same Love”, but that’s incredibly reductive.
I also cry at Trader Joe’s and the Post Office and the shower.
I talk about things that are uncomfortable in my work because they are usually important.
I am currently starring in the new Netflix animated musical Arlo the Alligator Boy and will be followed by a 20-episode series called I ❤️️ Arlo that comes out this Fall. OMG y’all!! She’s a cartoon, everybody!! You can read more about my experience as Bertie on the blog page.
Grief Creature, my most recent full length album is the most important piece of music I’ve ever made. I produced & composed it myself and I cried a lot while I made it. The album centers around trauma and mental illness.
You’re welcome?? Hope you enjoy crying to the soundtrack of my trauma??
I released a poetry collection, called Shame is an Ocean I Swim Across
in 2018. All the poems that I perform on Grief Creature that are also in this book.
These poems can be painful to read.
You can order it here.
xoxoxoxoxo forever amen,
