ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mallory’s debut album, produced by Bob Warren and Tony Markellis, features an impressive list of musical luminaries such as guitarist Chuck D’Aloia, cellist Monica Roach, drummer Danny Whelchel, and trumpeter and saxophonist Bill Holloman.

“Joy by Mallory O’Donnell is a gorgeous CD.
Mallory’s voice is stunning!”
Donna Frank, WEQX, Manchester, VT


“Joy is made up of deep, breezy moments that link torch songs and tragedies and pianos and flugel horns with subtle fingertips that go gliding across a jazzy fretboard of sound. Through it all is O’Donnell’s voice, delivering sassy soul music for the folkie heart and an appropriate soundtrack for alternately soaking up the daytime sunshine or walking a moonlight mile.”
Tom Dimopoulis, The Saratogian, Saratoga Springs, NY



“Celebrating the release of her very impressive debut disc, Joy,
the 18 year old singer showcases a big talent that belies her young age.
The dozen soulful, sophisticated songs were penned by singer-songwriter Bob Warren, and O’Donnell dazzles on everything from the soulful When In Love, to the jazzy Everything About You, to the rockin’The Next Step Is Easy.
Greg Haymes, The Times Union, Albany, NY


Joy is a collection of brand-new retro-sounding soul songs that capture you as if they were the soundtrack of the best part of your life. Vocalist Mallory O'Donnell is a born singer with a beautiful smile who brings out all the sultriness, the bliss, and the groove in the lyrics. This is a winning combination that sold out three shows in one weekend at Caffe Lena and has created an unprecedented buzz throughout the area."
Sarah Craig, Caffe’ Lena, Saratoga Springs, NY

Young talent merged with an established unique style
Mallory's obvious talent combined with the artistry of Bob Warren's original style formed a diverse set of songs all of which bring out immense emotion. A few favorites include: When In Love, Someone Like You, and my ultimate favorite Everything About You. I will be using Everything About You at my wedding for the father-daughter dance in spite of the fact that it makes me cry each time I listen to it.

Amazing emerging talent, killer songs and backup band
Mallory has a style and talent far beyond her years, and this wonderful premiere CD has been a permanent part of my play list for months. Performing a full repertoire of great Bob Warren songs and having a killer studio band doesn't hurt, but her performances of these songs bring her own interpretation and personality to them. Mallory is also an amazing live performer, and has matured to a new level since this release. Buy the CD, catch her live - I can't wait for the next one!

jazzy and soulful, mallory can belt it out!
Mallory O'Donnell's debut CD JOY certainly is a joy to listen to. Mallory has a strong, soulful voice and she can really belt it out. Bob Warren's writing is well-suited for Mallory's jazzy tunes. "Clear Connection" is the centerpiece of the CD, and features the strong background of the Bob Warren band. Don Warren's lead licks are terrific, and Tony Markoulus's bass lines are strong. Bob's "Everything About You," written when his son left for college is actually a lovely ballad, generic to many relationships and Mallory hits it just right. Don Warren sets the tone on "Next Step is Easy" with a thrilling lead guitar and Mallory's interpretation of Bob's "done there, been that" play on words is wonderful. Mallory's accapella on "Underworld" makes you feel as if you're in an underwater cave. All in all there's not a bad song on the disk. Can't wait for her follow-up CD.
