Many of you know me as Grathy, but my real name is Mary McGrath.
I began composing music around 2007 with a number of musicians on various music forums who provide background tracks for my vocals and lyrics. We have put out a few CDs through cdbaby.com all of which have been well-received.I prefer jazz, although I also do blues, pop, rock, and some experimental music.
My influences include Diana Krall, Mel Torme, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, k.d. lang, and a number of other gifted artists.
Beyond music, I am a freelance writer, and photographer. My work has appeared in a number of magazines, newspapers, books and several websites. Some of my publishing credits include: Newsweek, Good Housekeeping, Purple Clover, L.A. Times and Copley Newspapers.
Some of my more serious work is on Medium.com. https://medium.com/@marymcgrath_81047
I was in the advertising field for a number of years, and got out of corporate life in 2003 to pursue my creative interests. I'm having a blast!
