Mary Beth Maziarz (pronounced: “MAY-zee-arzz”) began singing in the jazz cafes, folk rooms, and elevated train platforms of Chicago while in college at Northwestern. After school, she moved to Park City, Utah, where she found the mountain community to be the perfect place to write songs, talk to interesting people, and appreciate the beauty of nature. A series of non-musical jobs bucked up her life experience and resume; time spent as a fine art framer, a golf course beer cart girl, and a waitress of many fascinating establishments helped her use that “American Culture” degree as she found her way through it, up close and personal.
Mary Beth released her first album in 1995 – the folky, award-winning Something Real. Since then, she has recorded four more full-length CDs: her current release, plus the wintery Snowed In, the rich pop of Supernatural/Goodnight, Goodnight and the mellow piano and vocal simplicity of A More Perfect World. She also has songs on two Sony soundtrack albums available everywhere – “Songs from Dawson’s Creek, Vol. 2” and “Broken Hearts Club – A Romantic Comedy.”
Upon its release, Supernatural (an earlier incarnation of Goodnight, Goodnight) topped Amazon’s “Emerging Artist” Best Seller list as the number #1 selling album on both the Pop and Adult Contemporary categories for over two months. Recently, A More Perfect World was ranked 20th on Amazon’s overall Pop list, selling better than thousands of major-label artists. Mary Beth’s independent label, Musaic, has sold over 30,000 of her albums so far from shows and indie record stores, and looks to double that amount in the next year.
