A talented songwriter herself, Mary Catherine Reynolds is an acclaimed interpreter of the songs of Emily Kaitz, Linda Waterfall & Ilene Weiss among others, and she can call upon an eclectic repertoire of traditional material and American popular songs.
She is a classically trained vocalist and instrumentalist, playing guitar or bass as required. Her compositions and interpretations were featured in the Fast Folk Musical Magazine when she lived in New York City in the early 80′s, and are archived at the Smithsonian.
While living in Austin, she was a frequent performer on the Austin scene and in October of 1996 was spotlighted in a solo “Live Set,” the venerable live radio broadcast of KUT Radio (Public Radio at the University of Texas.).
Mary now lives in Oklahoma City, where she continues to play with the band Miss Brown to You and the vocal group The Sisters of Swing, along with other projects in traditional, country, jazz & pop music.
Mary’s solo recordings include patience (1998) and ohthree (or “the Puppy album,” 2003).
“Her voice is a clarion call, a beautiful & controlled birdsong.” Thomas Conner, Tulsa World
