Mary Ann Redmond

I’m from Richmond VA where at 15 I got to sing with my two brother’s top 40 band for a few years before heading off to college. I studied as a voice major at VCU for a year operatically and got to be in the 4th jazz band. Not a ringing endorsement, but nonetheless, it was a great school. I’ve been in bands ever since covering all kinds of music and writing my songs as well. As for five years from now, I hope to be playing, singing teaching and doing what I love.

Redmond-Langosch-Cooley: Compared to What

In 2003, after I heard Mary Ann Redmond's astonishing voice for the first time, we did an interview here called “On the Verge." Well, she's still on that verge--at least everywhere outside of the Washington, D.C. area, where she lives. With just a handful of albums to her name, Redmond has won an astounding ...

Mary Ann Redmond's powerful, passionate voice inspires critics to poetic heights. Dan McClenaghan, reviewing her Prisoner of the Heart CD for this site, wrote: “she can belt it out to shake the walls down or caress a lyric like she's petting a cat." Goldmine admired her ability to go from a “fragile whisper" to a “riveting ...

Mary Ann Redmond: Prisoner of the Heart

Read "Prisoner of the Heart" reviewed by Dave Nathan

Washington, D. C.'s Mary Ann Redmond must have been weaned on the albums of Aretha Franklin, Lee Dorsey, Gladys Knight (with and without the Pips) and other soul artists who claimed their place in the annals of American Popular Music during the 1960's and beyond. This urbanization of rhythm and blues eventually migrated into a pop ...

It would be hard to find more soul on a current CD than you'll get on Mary Ann Redmond's Prisoner of the Heart. Maybe on Solomon Burke's latest, but that's about it. Redmond's voice is an awesome instrument; she can belt it out to shake the walls down ("Since I Fell for You") or caress a ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
