ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Canadian born, New York based Mary Lamont and her band have recorded new original material written by Mary and husband Jim Marchese, along with “What Was Right for You,” an alt-country tune offered to Mary by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dennis Dunaway, bassist and co-founder of the Alice Cooper group and co-writer of many Alice Cooper megahits including “School’s Out.” When Dennis heard Mary’s recording of his song, he said, “I love this! You found that perfect balance of sadness and happiness that country thrives on. Clean full recording with a nice live feel and chock full of tasty pickin' that would put a big smile on my Dad's face.”

Also included is a quite different version of Ray Davies’ “A Well Respected Man.”

Featured on the title track is legendary drummer Steve Holley, who has played for Paul McCartney, Elton John, Joe Cocker, Ian Hunter and many other top artists.

Born and raised in rural Ontario, Mary is honored as an ASCAP Audio Portrait on ASCAP’s website. Mary and her band completed a groundbreaking tour of Mainland China as the first American country band to tour there. Mary has opened for Delbert McClinton, The Marshall Tucker Band and Charlie Daniels Band.

Mary Lamont Band has performed summer concerts at the historic Jones Beach Boardwalk Bandshell for over two decades, and was featured in Newsday’s special section celebrating Jones Beach’s 75th Anniversary.

Mary is a radio host on alternate Sundays of the long-running radio show “Down Home Country ” on WUSB 90.1FM at Stony Brook University, streaming live at wusb.fm

Mary’s husband and co-writer/guitarist Jim Marchese is a professional photographer with a career of exciting assignments, including that of tour photographer for the European leg of Bruce Springsteen’s “The River” tour. Jim’s prints are available for purchase through the prestigious Morrison Hotel Gallery (New York/Los Angeles/Maui).

“It’s great to be back in the studio with such talent, says Mary, “And with a partner like Jim, the sky’s the limit – and that’s Not Far from Here!”
