Mary Ann Farley
My Life of Crime
With the glut of female (sub)urban singer songwriters it is increasingly difficult to hear something fresh and engaging. With My Life of Crime, Mary Ann Farley takes a serious swing at rising above the scrum. Her melodies are engaging and her lyrics, while honest, avoid reaching the tell it all mentality that seems to accompany too many discs of this type that leave the listener with more discomfort than insight.
Mary Ann Farley is also a talented painter creating images that are pop art by way of Modigliani and are worth seeking out even if her music isn’t your bag. But if you dig her paintings you’re probably going to be a fan of her music as well.
