Mary Ellen O'Brien

May Musician of the Month

I first met Mary Ellen at a Wednesday Open Mic at Espresso Joe's. She's a regular there, with her beaming smile and positive attitude. Her enthusiasm was contagious. And then when she takes the stage you realize that this is one talented lady. 

Her songs are different from the run of the mill. I always enjoy seeing her perform. She recently released an album entitled "All Roads Lead Us Home" and it's available online or at one of her appearances.

As for how she got to be who she is and do what she does, it's all in the interview. Enjoy!

April Musician(s) of the Month
at the 
2nd Annual Creative Arts & Music Festival 

We're trying something new this month. Instead of interviewing a featured artist, which will continue to be our main format, we decided to do a remote recording live at the Creative Arts and Music Festival, entertainment provided courtesy of Musicians on a Mission. We were able to get a couple of impromptu interviews, with Cat London and Rich Aveo, and Gil Velazquez

Check out excellent videos of their performances by Eddy Hayduk on the Musicians on a Mission Facebook page.
