The Journey began February 26, 2014 as Simply Mary was forced to finally make the decision to flee her life in PA due to complications of Multiple Violations of a Protection Order granted January 14, 2014 in Elk County, PA
With this decision, she had no choice but to “Just figure it out with whatever I had to work with. I was being GPS tracked, my emails hacked, and followed constantly through all of my Social Media Accounts, despite a direct Court Order and 3 contempt charges. There is no law over internet activity when someone uses a fake name unless you can directly tie it to the criminal from what I am repeatedly told.” Says Mary, Producer/Singer/Songwriter/Composer/Musician and Founder of the band Simply Mary.

Each member helped form each song with the same Mission - To Empower Survivors of Domestic Violence and Child Abuse. In a very short amount of time the band was performing and making awesome music, before you know it they landed in TallCat Studios, LLC. Phoenix, AZ Recording this Amazing Album!
Our mission is a sensitive and serious topic. We want to make it clear that there are no "profiles" for victims. You can be a man, a woman, a child, a baby, black, white, Catholic, Jewish, it does not matter. You are all at risk statistically. Domestic Violence and Child Abuse is not just bruises. We are asking everyone to please use the #NotJustBruises to share your story on the Social Networks and bring awareness to that simple fact if you have an experience to share.” Says Mary.
Radio Station Creds and Reviews to support our project are important stepping stones for our future, so we are asking for your help in sharing our message. If you are a Member of ASCAP’s Partner - AirPlay Direct, you can find our tracks in a Downloadable Format at : www.airplaydirect.com/simplymary
