We are so incredibly honored to have won the BandPage/Zoo Labs Music Residency Contest. We entered a couple months ago, made the top 10, put together a project proposal, made the top 3, then got on the phone for a rigorous interview with the founders of Zoo Labs. Last week we found out that we’re the insanely lucky winners of this $25k prize package.
It’s been a wild few weeks, and it’s about to get even wilder – they’re flying us out to San Francisco next month to record an EP and go through their 2-week music accelerator program. We’ll be putting our heads together for business modeling and strategic planning for our long-term career goals. Pretty cool, huh?! Best of all, I get to bring the band – Jimmy Sullivan of course, Rich Hinman and Johnny Duke.
We don’t want you to feel out of the loop, so we’re bringing our great friend Ellen Anderson as social media extraordinaire. We’ll be hosting some pretty cool in-studio live streams and interviews, so stay tuned for details.
In July, American Songwriter Magazine asked me a few fun questions. Check it out here.

Are We Okay
We’re one month into our Nashville lives and things are just grand. Our biggest, most amazing highlight so far is having the opportunity to record a Daytrotter session last month, and I’m happy to share with you that it’s now live and ready for your listening ears. Head over to Daytrotter.com and get yourself a free trial membership to stream our session (and many amazing others), or get a bonafide membership and you’ll be able to download our tracks and throw ‘em on your iPhone.
Jimmy and I played as a duo four not-yet-released MB songs:
2. Always Something
3. Feels Like Friday Night
4. Let’s Get Lazy

Hey guess what!? WE’RE MOVING TO NASHVILLE!
It’s hard to believe, but our beloved musical home is closing their doors at 154 Ludlow St. at the end of February. We have one final show left there for our residency “Mary Bragg With” on February 12, featuring our very talented friends Barnaby Bright.
Come help us give them a good strong sendoff! And if you’d like to be a part of their relocation efforts, click here.
I made a little video about our time there, hope you enjoy:)
Y’all. Our show at the Living Room Monday night was so fulfilling, I’m so grateful for all of your listening ears! Carl Anderson came all the way from Charlottesville, and blew our socks off. We’re really glad he came up to be our June guest, because um, he’s really, really good.
As is my next guest, which is a surprise. I might be able to tell you who it is the day before the show, but you’ll have to pay attention to get that memo! It’s Monday, July 16, from 7-9pm at The Living Room. My darling superband will be with me- Jimmy Sullivan, Anton Fier, Mike Cassedy and Rich Hinman. I could listen to them play all day. Come, let’s have a big ol’ time.
We’re SUPER excited to be playing Nashville again, on Monday, July 30! Join us at 7pm at The Basement, where we’re sharing the stage with our good friend Korby Lenker!
GEORGIA FANS! I am so excited to announce that my band and I will be opening for Peter Bradley Adams on Friday, July 27 in Duluth! Come on up!!! Click here for advance tickets, which are highly recommended.
