MaryAnn Stefanik, lyricist, singer and song writer from New Jersey & Florida, has always enjoyed singing from a young age. A memorable voice compared to Kim Carnes, Melissa Etheridge and 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.
