ABOUT

Mary Mahaffey

Mary_Profile_2023.jpg

Born in South Carolina and now based in Barcelona, Mary Mahaffey is an Americana singer-songwriter who carries a raw emotional energy in her songs and stories. Her lyricism, woven with elements of folk, country, and roots music, wraps listeners in the essence of intimacy and authentic expression. 

In May of last year she released her debut album, Daydreams, recorded and produced at Sol de Sants Studio in Barcelona. In this wistful Americana record, Mary’s earthy and soothing voice blends with pedal steel guitar, hammond organ, and violin to create a unique emotive texture. 

More recently, Mary has worked on a new series of songs, with the first one, “Slow Down” released on March 22, 2024. Compared to Daydreams, these new songs are more stripped down and bare, with only Mahaffey on voice, acoustic guitar, and violin, allowing her most authentic voice to shine through. Recorded by Ramon Pujol at CasaFont Records in Navès, Catalonia at the foot of Busa mountain, these songs will take the listener directly to idyllic scenes and better worlds. 

This year Mary intends both to write and to tour extensively throughout Europe and North America. Although she is still on the heels of the release of her debut album, audiences can expect much more music to come.
