Mary Bue w/Shannon Frid Ruben (from Cloud Cult)

Beyond excited that violinist Shannon Frid Rubin from Cloud Cult will sit in with me for this show! Mostly solo/acoustic with possibly some harmonies thrown in as well. 

"It’s often when an artist takes unexpected detours that their voice truly emerges. Minnesota native Mary Bue has carved out a growing reputation as a piano balladeer and songwriter of unquestioned skill, but Bue’s sixth studio album sports a triumphant turn in artistic direction. Bue abandons the piano-driven sound of earlier efforts in favor of guitar-centered pieces with high melodic content and a surprising, appealing dissonance. Bue’s eight song collection touches on personal issues, but her songwriting vision encompasses a sharp sense of social commentary further shaped by her vivid imagination." - Skope Mag

MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE – BEST LOCAL ALBUMS OF 2015 (SO FAR)

Fans of ’90s alt-rock darlings like Belly and Jen Trynin will immediately take to the rocky hooks of songs like “Candy” and “Heart’s Desire.” Bue’s ghost-confronting, demons-wrestling lyrics seep in more slowly but prove similarly alluring. – Chris Riemenschnieder
