Love and Gravity

Singer-songwriter Mary Fahl, former lead singer of October Project, has teamed up with legendary producer John Lissauer, who has collaborated with some of the greatest musicians of our time (including producing Leonard Cohen’s classic recording “Hallelujah”) for her long-awaited self-released album Love and Gravity, available February 11th.  Mary Fahl will perform in select cities across the U.S. to support the album release.

This 10 song collection is filled with majestic, folk-etched ballads, most of which were composed and co-written by Fahl; including “Exiles (The Wolves of Midwinter),” the theme song for the audiobook version of “The Wolves of Midwinter” by iconic author Anne Rice.  The album also features a powerful tribute to true love, “Gravity (Move Mountains, Turn Rivers Around)” (written for her husband, renowned deep-sea oceanographer and marine ecologist Richard Lutz); the unflaggingly romantic “Like Johnny Loved June” (honoring Johnny Cash and June Carter); and the rousing “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.”  Love and Gravity also includes two pre-released singles; an inspiring re-imagining of the Joni Mitchell classic, “Both Sides Now” and Fahl’s moving tribute to 9/11 rescue workers, “Dawning of the Day,” set to a traditional Irish melody. Mary Fahl describes Love and Gravity as a “meditative record about finding love later in life while maintaining a sense of optimism amid chaos.”

Although Mary Fahl is best known as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s folk-rock/adult alternative group October Project, Fahl continues to gain praise from fans and critics alike as a solo artist as well – due in part to her powerfully evocative vocals.   The Los Angeles Times described Fahl’s voice as “striking” with “wide range” and “rich, full-bodied amplitude” and Anne Rice has called her vocals “supernatural.” The Portland Press noted that it was “hard not to fall for this Mary and her soul-permeating pipes” while The Boston Globe wrote that Mary had “a voice for the gods.”
