On June 22, 2010, Mary Lemanski will release her first full-length CD, "Eclectic." The album is a multifarious mix of pop, rock, dance, urban, and even, country. The listening experience is much like a personal mixtape. Throughout the album, Mary predominantly touches on many themes relating to relationships:
Mary began playing professionally at age 11, playing pipe organ. For the past 12 years, Mary has released her original music as MP3s on the Internet. In 2004, she placed runner-up in the Song of the Year Contest, had a Top 10 Hit on Broadjam.com's New Wave charts, and performed at the One World Festival in St. Cloud, MN.
