Folk, Blues, Rock ...=_=...

MaryAnn Stefanik, lyricist, singer and song writer from New Jersey & Florida, has always enjoyed singing from a young age. A memorable voice compared to Melissa Etheridge. Think, Marianne Faithfull, MaryAnn has a hypnotic sexy tone that will pull you through the various genres of Folk, Adult Contemporary and Rock. Warm, real, honest and sincere, her lyrics will enlighten you and enfold you into the wisdom and light that is MaryAnn.

In the eighties, MaryAnn was a lead singer in a band called "Disaster Recovery", which was considered alternative rock at the time. John “Jun” Warchol was the writer for the band, a guitarist, and vocalist as well. As time went on all band members went their separate ways and carried on with their lives.

MaryAnn started writing again and returned to the music scene. She began writing the songs for her “A Rose…Is a Rose…Is a Rose” CD in July 2006. In January 2009, the CD was being completed at the Steinwand Sound Studios in Newton, New Jersey and features some top-notch guest musicians, most notably Jay Leslie of The Tokens, who helped in some of the arrangements of the songs and played Saxophones, (Baritone, Alto, Tenor, soprano) flute, clarinet and sang harmonies. The album was released on April 1st 2009 with much fanfare and has received critical acclaim and excellent reviews.

MaryAnn commented “I really enjoyed making this album. If my music can touch but one heart, I have done my job.”

Since the release of “A Rose…Is a Rose…Is a Rose”, MaryAnn has continued her musical journey having fun with cover songs as well as recently embarking on writing for her next original CD. The release of the singles “Crossing Over by the 31st” and “Picture Perfect” has proven her writing skills and both are a favorite with the critics.

Disk 1

8. Maryann – Hips, Lips & Eyes 3:13 – Good God, I dig Country with a sense of humor. The song starts out with a Country vibe, before going into a Jerry Lee Lewis type of 50s Rock and Roll. The old-school horns in the background totally rock! Man, I hope those cats are wearing fedoras and shades. The thing that gets me are the lyrics. Ok, ok, Maryann does indeed sing well, in fact the song would suck if she didn’t, but what I really like is this is an old-time seduction manual. I want to hang with Maryann!

11. Maryann – Transparent World 2:57 – Maryann is back, and I am really digging the guitar intro. Those chords rock. Then her voice comes in and BOOM, there it is, ROCK -N- ROLL. The drums are heavy; the man knows how to pound. The guitar just lays down chord after chord in an excellent riff. I am not sure if this is a religious song, but in all honesty, I could not care less. She could be singing Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows for all I care. The music and her voice are incredible. I still want to hang with Maryann!

Disk 2

2. Maryann – HITF 060617 3:50 – Maryann is back again. Man, this band just does not quit. This time out they are showing that they can play Pop tracks as well. The thing is that this is really good Pop, that could be an earworm. I have come to the conclusion that Maryann is simply a very talented and versatile band whom I really would like to see in person. Any chance you will be in Sweden this summer?

Disk 211. Maryann – Life – “Thank You” 2:46 – Maryann, I am really becoming a huge fan! The bass intro is ultracool.
