Mary Hood

Mary Hood

Mary Hood is a rising voice from a digital generation singing about old school themes like loneliness, love, loss, and longing with twisting acoustic guitar and a reedy soulful voice. Her music stands alone but her main influences Fiona Apple and Shakey Graves can be heard in her raw and resonant style, while others have compared her lyrics and storminess to acoustic legends Elliot Smith and Nick Drake. Mary’s motivation as a writer is to tell the truth even when it’s hard to say. She is backed by Chris Curtin on drums and Brian Hart on bass who have grown her sound to another emotional level. She has played everywhere from The Bitter End in New York City to Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, to Pleasantville Music Festival where she opened for Blues Traveler and Suzanne Vega. Experiencing prejudice in the music industry firsthand, she is passionate about bringing women artists and musicians together in hopes that we can change the way the industry works. She put together a small diy all women run, all women played festival in 2018 and is hoping to grow the festival over the years and do more events to help women in the industry.
