BEST MUSIC POLL
Best Female Vocalist in Providence
Mary Brierly, known to all as Mary Bee, takes top honors here, and with good reason: her recent debut Fiesole provides plenty of memorable moments, cooing across jazz, R&B, and hip-hop rhythms. She teamed with longtime friend and producer David Gonzalez, who cooked up a variety of beats to accompany Mary's captivating vocals. Fiesole's opening tracks "Without Fear" and "Everything" are reason alone to pick up the album, while "Like This," the jazzy "Rainbows," and the title track are among the many highlights. And don't let her quiet demeanor behind the bar at AS220 fool you: Mary Bee can belt it out onstage, as Gonzalez noted: "Talk to Mary and you'll get a lot of innocent shy girl, but then she starts singing and that little girl starts to roar like a lion in a corset."
