Mary Lambert to Perform at the Civic Arts Plaza, 9/26
Mary Lambert, the featured vocalist and songwriter on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' award-winning song "Same Love", makes her only southern California appearance at the Scherr Forum on Friday, September 26, 2014 at 8:30 pm.
Lambert has been a singer, songwriter, composer and spoken word artist in her native Seattle for the past six years. A competitor in Russell Simmons "Brave New Voices" (HBO) International Competition in 2008, Lambert is Seattle's 2011 Grand Poetry Slam Champion and the 2012 Northwest Regional Slam winner.
As one of the biggest music revelations of 2013, Lambert went from juggling several jobs to playing in front of thousands of people, touring the country, and performing live on national television on such hugely popular primetime and late night shows as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, VH1 and The Colbert Report. "Same Love" has sold over a million copies in the US alone, peaking at number 11 on The Billboard Hot 100.
Lambert has been lighting up the airwaves at Adult Top 40 stations nationwide with her single "She Keeps Me Warm," which has climbed into the Top 20. The track is featured on her debut EP, Welcome to the Age of My Body, which was released in December and has earned rave reviews. In addition, Lambert was nominated for two 2014 Grammy Awards for "Song of the Year" and "Album of the Year" for writing and singing the hook on "Same Love". She also made history by performing "Same Love" on the Grammy telecast with Macklemore, Lewis, and Madonna while Queen Latifah memorably married 33 couples.
Inspired by confessional folk singers as well as spoken-word poets, Lambert is a fearless and candid writer, who empowers both herself and her listeners in her songs, which showcase her ethereal, lilting voice and soul baring lyricism. She is currently at work on a debut full-length album, produced by Eric Rosse (Tori Amos, Sara Bareilles), which Capital Records will release later this fall.
