Tiny Stars

by Mary Lyn Maiscott

Ranging from tenderness to grittiness, this singer-songwriter delivers two ballads—one called “hauntingly beautiful” by Vanity Fair—and a rocker with a literary bent and mean guitar!

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
All tracks were produced by Nick Miller at Mercy Sound Studios in NYC. Nick played or programmed all instruments with these exceptions: Joan Chew on violin for "Alexander/Isabella" and "Tiny Stars"; Graig Janssen on piano for "Tiny Stars." Nick also produced Mary Lyn’s song “Time,” on her EP "Crucified," a Vanity Fair Twitter pick.

The photos and design in the "Tiny Stars" album packaging are by C.G. Reeves.

"Tiny Stars" consists of three tracks: In “Madame Olenska,” the singer speaks to one of the main characters in Edith Wharton’s "The Age of Innocence"—a free-spirited but vulnerable countess who unwittingly disturbs the set ways of 19th-century New York City society. Called "hauntingly beautiful" by Vanity Fair, “Alexander/Isabella” explores the friendship between superstar designer Alexander McQueen and fashion maven Isabella Blow, both of whom burnt brightly but far too briefly. “Tiny Stars” is a swirling-night-sky meditation on love and loss, a soulful cri de coeur in the face of universal mysteries.

Tracks from Mary Lyn’s CD "Blue Lights" have been played on radio stations internationally. Ohio radio-talk-show host Louie Free has called the CD's title song, which she wrote about the wartime romance of her parents, “a Christmas classic.” Mexico City’s Guillermo Henry, who devoted an entire episode of his show "Radio Etiopía" to “Blue Lights,” has said that “Mary Lyn has the voice of the very angels.”

She lives in NYC, where she’s played clubs ranging from CBGB’s to the National Underground. Her husband, Robert Rosen, the author of "Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon" and "Beaver Street,” appears on the cover of her EP “Crucified." (So does she: the silhouette is based on a photo of her shadow.) Influenced by Robert's Lennon bio, Mary Lyn covered the Beatles’ “You Can't Do That” on “Blue Lights” and often does Lennon’s “I'm Losing You” when playing live.

Mary Lyn has also interviewed many prominent singers for VanityFair.com and StarPolish.com, including Linda Ronstadt, Debbie Harry, and Sheryl Crow. Her fiction has appeared in The Portland Review and her personal essays in such publications as Cosmopolitan and The Village Voice. `
