I met Mary Solberg five or six years ago in Manhattan's West Village when I was booking Path Cafe and Caffe Vivaldi. I was blown away by her voice and style and booked her as soon as I could and did my first Friggin Fabulous Radio interview with her a few years back.
Her new EP, "Just Enough Time" is a triumphant production featuring many of the people in the NYC Rock and Folk scene. It covers everything from short term relationships to the frustration of text "ghosting."
Mari travels back and forth from her hometown of Oslo, Norway to New York City as often as she can and usually plays a few shows when in the NYC area.
You can find her music on iTunes, Spotify and all the other places you find quality music.
