In 2004, she placed runner-up in the Song of the Year Contest, had a Top 10 Hit on Broadjam.com's New Wave charts, and performed at the One World Festival in St. Cloud, MN. In 2005, she was showcased at Earth Mother Mind Jam in Tempe, AZ, the Putt Putt Pub Crawl in St. Louis, MO, and the Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA. In May 2006, Mary won honorable mention in the R&B/Hip-Hop category of the Song of the Year Contest. 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. 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 Chicago 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. Mary has done songwriting, marketing, and image consultation for many record labels and individual artists. She wrote columns for GoGirlsMusic.com and LooseyLucy's Headquarters and opened for Marky Ramone & the Speed Kings, D.I., and Val Emmich. She is currently working on her third full-length album. For more information on Mary, visit www.marylemanski.com SANDY ANDINA Sandy Andina is a veteran of the Chicago folk scene, with detours along the way into rock & roll, comedy, politics and motherhood -- all of which inform her incisive original songs, serious & funny. As a solo artist, Sandy plays acoustic guitar and mountain dulcimer, but in collaboration doubles on bass guitar, harmonica and baritone ukelele. With her current singing partner, Stephen Lee Rich, their duo, Andina & Rich have two albums out: 2006’s “Because We Can” on Travenia, the title track of which was a Dr. Demento favorite, and 2010’s “Two Guitars, a Dulcimer and an Attitude” on DulciYodel — listed in 7 categories on the 2010 Grammy ballot and all 14 cuts of which have gotten airplay. Sandy is currently working on her second solo disc “Candy Apple Red Herring,” as well as the followup and holiday Andina & Rich CDs. She plays clubs, concerts and festivals all over Chicagoland, the rest of the Midwest, and occasionally Mid-Atlantic, mid-South, West and far West—as well as the Chicago Bar Association’s annual “Christmas Spirits” satirical musical revue.
