“A complex combination of American roots and Old World folk music.... The result is alternately reminiscent of Tom Waits and of contemporary revivalists Mumford & Sons, while retaining a dense, organic sound entirely unique to Swallows.” - City Pages (Minneapolis)
“Mary describes her own work as ‘the retellings of adventures, mishaps, and pains-in-the-ass.’ Which is simply to say that through her experiences touring the country, studying yoga from 2008 to 2011 in Seattle, attaining a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and falling in and out of love, she has a lot of wisdom to retell. The songs are a map she has drawn through the depths of the ocean of human experience; and even though the lyrics are often pulled from secret, dark places, Mary’s presence is a positive one, full of laughter and light.” - Amy Clark, KAXE
"...Sea Salt, shares the strengths of her debut yet also shows signs of maturation. Its sonic palette is leaner, more uniform and a shade darker, with slow-burning distorted guitars and steady, martial drumbeats anchoring many of Becker's bouyant acoustic meanderings. The singer's lyrics are every ounce as smart and charming as before, but with moments of stark imagery and introspection, leading the album's emotional textures into murky, monochromatic territory...." - 89.3 The Current's Local Current Blog
