Monday’s were made for melancholy and Mary Lambert owns that moody, poetic moment. Hailing from Seattle, Lambert is a singer/songwriter of prose and self-reflection. Her debut album, Heart on my Sleeve, is a mirror into her world of love, redemption, and humor; powered by a soft tonal hesitation as she sits at her piano, only to come out of her shell with an operatic force. Bring a close friend’s shoulder or simply fly solo. Just don’t miss this amazing new artist.
