*I participated in the Mary Lambert Heart On My Sleeve album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.*
I had the chance to review a copy of, Mary Lambert's new album, Heart On My Sleeve, thanks to One2OneNetwork.
I spent a lot of time reading up on, Mary Lambert and found a lot of very fascinating things about her, which ended up leading me to really find that I liked this chic!
I learned that she is just a regular person, much like most of us. She even admits to her, "not so awesome" parts, you know, those little things that aren't always so becoming of us, so we tend to hide them? Well, she writes about hers and she seems to like those things about herself.
Anybody who promotes acceptance, whether it is of yourself or somebody else, is super awesome in my book!
I especially admire how, Mary Lambert, managed to make this type of music, (whatever type that may be. I know they call it, "pop", but it has it's own sound..) her own. and with little effort too! It has a unique, natural flow about it.
Some interesting things about, Mary Lambert, (at least to me!) are, that she seems very modest and seems genuinely happy to be her. She used to be a brunch waitress and a bartender, which I found super cool because I'm a bartender also and I always love hearing stories about people who started out where I did and end up "making it big".
She would like to one day have enough money to buy her mom a house, (that is so sweet!), and she wants to be able to tip brunch waitresses with $100 bills.
Mary doesn't have some glorious story behind her success, although, some would see it as a sort of, Cinderella story. She admits to struggling both personally and financially and having regular issues and problems just like any other regular person.
The way she views herself and the rest of the world is just, classy.
Her music is the same, different and maybe not something I would listen to on a regular basis but after knowing her story and appreciating her background and her style, I would!
It is an all around good album that will definitely hold your interest and it will be hard to choose a favorite because each track is special in it's own way.
