Marye will be sharing her original songs plus fun covers - singing and playing piano, guitar and ukulele. About Marye... “I see art as a means of communicating an urgent message to one’s community. Each body of work that I create is a unique opportunity for self discovery and an invitation to find the courage to be who I am. By the time each tour comes to a close, I think to myself: “ok, I’ve got that one covered - I'm healed!” —healed from whatever it was I was working through and looking to be strong in. It is always my hope and prayer that my listeners benefit in the same way while experiencing my music. My debut album: FINDING HOME (2008) was about “Who am I? Who am I going to be in this world, and how am I going to serve?” Not so coincidently, the first track on that album - Music; My Love (which is about when I discovered that music is my true love) was placed in a Huawei smartphone in 2016, which connected me to thousands of new listeners from around the globe. The tour for this album covered Santiago and Puerto Montt Chile, NYC, Rochester, NY, Boston and Burlington, VT. The album itself was blessed to have an incredible international team of powerhouse musicians: Chris Bilton (Canadian, producer, piano - his credits include: Allison Krauss, Grey’s Anatomy, Lost Girl, the Vampire Diaries), Aurelien Budynek (French, guitar - credits include: Sting & Lennie Kravitz), Dan Graham (English, drums), Bernat Guardia Arenas (Barcelonian, bass), Marcelo Woloski (Argentinean, percussion - credits include: Ruben Blades & Snarky Puppy). Arrangements were created by Juan Andres Ospina (Colombian), Oscar Stagnaro (Peruvian - credits include: Jorge Drexler & Eva Allyon) and Andres Rotmistrovsky (Argentinean - credits include: Joan Baez & Ruben Blades). We recorded the band in Boston with Kenny Lewis and recorded vocals and mixed the album in Toronto with Michael Jack (Canadian, credits include: Bono, Nelly Furtado, Hilary Duff, Rush & Ludacris). Creating my second album NOT AT WAR (2012) gave me the freedom and peace to be at home inside myself. The song “Be Bright” is 'be proud of who you are' anthem if you need one! The tour took place in DC (opening for the David Bromberg Big Band at the Birchmere), NYC, Rochester, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles and San Fransisco. The official music video “All You Need” (a song from NOT AT WAR,) was directed by Ivan Barahona. I am grateful for the musicians who played on the album: George Saenz (producer, arranger & bass - credits include: Lila Downs & Calpulli Mexican Dance Company), Marie Kim (cello - credits include: Lucious & Antonio Sanchez), and Carmen Estevez (cajon). My third album: TOP OF THE TREES (2017) is dedicated to my late father, Jarret J. Lobb who died on Christmas Eve 2013 from complications of a heart transplant. I started writing the work one week after he passed away. TOP OF THE TREES helped me to move through my grief, honor my father and connect me with people who needed help working through the same process. The album is me singing and playing either piano or ukulele - very simple instrumentation. If you like nature, you may enjoy the official TOP OF THE TREES music video (found on my YouTube channel) that was shot and edited by the brilliant Catherine Young in Mendon Ponds Park in my hometown of Rochester, NY. The Top of the Trees Tour was a House Concert tour in NYC, DC, Rochester, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Memphis, Denver & Boulder, CO and Portland, OR. After this experience, I saw first hand the overwhelmingly awesome healing powers of music. I was humbled by the stories that my listeners shared with me after my concerts after I had confided what this album was truly about at the very beginning of my set. I loved those conversations and want to have more of them — this was a thread I so wanted to follow. I took a deeper look at my creative process and noticed that I have always turned to music for answers and music has never failed me; I also noticed that most of my songs are written in a question/answer format. In 2018, I started a program SONG DETOX to share my creative process with others, to help them move through their feelings and find creative solutions to their problems. Music has helped keep me alive and I so want to share its power with others. That is what SONG DETOX is all about. I am currently writing my fourth album, working through my personal growth, exploring peace and power. In addition to writing and SONG DETOX, I’ve been performing solo and with my band for over 10 years at weddings and special events. I am the founder and director of the Marye Lobb Music School based in NYC providing music education for children and adults in person and virtually. ” About the Little Theatre Cafe...
