“Easy, effortless, breezy, and boundless: a few words to describe Mary Nelson´s entrance into a room, as is her approach to jazz. With a soulful voice beyond her years her interpretations and songwriting is bold and breathtaking.”
Mary Nelson has a clear vision of herself and her music
and said once in an interview:
“Creative and innovative jazz music with the roots in The Great American Songbook, but with modern lyrics that grab and stick to the memory of my audience. That is my vision, both when I create music and lyrics, but also when I perform it. To convey a feeling. A story. A brief moment from my life or someone else's.
Music has that power and jazz music is said to be a close to extinct genre, but in my eyes, it is stronger in our time and more exciting than ever.”
