Director of Operations and Chicago Chapter Coordinator. Mary Lemanski started her professional music career at age 11, playing pipe organ. For the past 14 years, Mary has released her original music on the Internet. In 2010, Mary Lemanski released her first full-length CD, "Eclectic." Since releasing "Eclectic," Mary has performed at Six Flags Great America and was a Semi-Finalist in the 2011 Song of the Year songwriting contest. She was also a Regional Winner in Flavorpill's A Band Apart competition and was featured on the Chicago Regional Winners mixtape. In 2012, Mary released, "Speechless," an album of instrumentals in various genres. She is currently working on her third full-length release. Mary earned a Music/Business Administration degree from Millikin University, a certification in audio engineering from the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences, and an MBA in e-Business from the University of Phoenix. She is the Director of Operations and the Chicago & Springfield, IL coordinator for Songsalive!, an international songwriting organization. Mary has worked widely in the music industry, including Epitaph Records, BMG Entertainment, Clear Channel Radio, Razormaid.com, and Rhino Staging. She has opened for Marky Ramone & the Speed Kings, D.I., and Val Emmich. Mary is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), as well as the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS). www.marylemanski.com PIOBAGUSFIDIL (uilleann pipes and fiddle: traditional Irish music) Karen (fiddle) and Patrick Cannady (uilleann pipes) play Irish traditional music learned through years of study, absorbing a large and growing repertoire from Chicago’s community of Irish immigrant and Irish American musicians, from old tune collections, and from recordings old and new. They have traveled thousands of miles to learn from masters, and spent countless hours honing and refining their sound, both at home and in the rough-and-tumble Chicago session scene. The sound is of reeds and strings, sounding together with clarity and sweetness over the trance-inducing hum and organ-like tones of the uilleann pipes. They play a diverse repertoire of dance tunes, marches, song airs, and baroque-era Irish harp compositions. They perform at Irish traditional music festivals (Milwaukee Irish Fest, the biggest in the country), regional and national traditional music events (Saint Louis, Saint Paul, Northeast, and Southern California Tionols), and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations (Irish American Heritage Center Patrick’s Day Celebration). They are at work recording a collection of tunes presently. The collection will include arrangements of traditional dance tunes obtained from older Irish-born musicians in Chicago and other material researched from 18th and 19th century collections. www.piobagusfidil.com SHANARA THE MOUTHPEACE Chicago born and raised, Shanara The MouthPeace is a product of hip-hop's “goldenera”, soul and gospel music. From her youth, she's been a lyricist and vocalist, singing from the playground to the choir in her hood, to the now over saturated spoken word scene in urban America. She finally found her own voice and style and crowned herself The MouthPeace. (A title well earned since you can add voiceovers, actress and radio personality to her bio). Sometimes compared to her artistic role model, Jill Scott, she is still set apart in her own right. She released her debut album, “The Discipline & The Diligence” (D&D), in 2012. D&D featured some of her most well known songs, “Jazz & Him” and “Reindeer Games”, which has been heralded by several critics and is in rotation on internet radio. D&D is a unique balance showcasing her singing, pure prose and spoken word with obvious hip hop and jazz undertones. These days, she is adamant about building her resume as a songwriter through her latest project #14in14 (writing for other artists and film), expanding her sound with her new band, Illa 100, while improving her chess game and becoming fluent in French. www.mouthpeacestar.com *************************************************************** APPLY TO PERFORM AT A FUTURE SHOWCASE SEEKING SINGER/SONGWRITERS TO PERFORM: * You must be able to guarantee a min. of 3-5 guests. * Minimum 3 song acoustic or electric set. * You must be a Songsalive!
