For Mary C., daughter of jazz artist Mercedes Hall and sister of Actor/Director Anthony Michael Hall, artistry runs deep in the blood. This rising star has been the buzz of NYC's music scene for the last 3 years. Mary has been compared to such artists as Joss Stone, Christina Aguilera and Lauryn Hill, but she brings her own unique sense of style and flare to her music that separates her artistry from the rest. Some recent highlights in her career include performing at Pianos in January, sharing the bill with Grammy nominated R&B artist Emily King!
Jesse Palter puts a modern spin on jazz standards as well as originals. In naming Jesse's debut album Beginning To See The Light the #1 jazz album last year, Charles Lattimer of the Metro Times had this to say: "I listened to this jazz album more than any other this year. What a wonderful jazz vocalist, with a voice that's as delicate as a bee making love to a flower."
