MaryLeigh Roohan released the official video for her single “My Friends” today. The video follows a call girl as she struggles with the reality of her situation and her decision to break free of it. It perfectly accompanies Roohan's brooding lyrics and tone. As The Wild Honey Pie stated about the single, "With a dark twanging riff that anchors the track, Roohan’s voice is able to sweep in all it’s dramatic loveliness. She flows with the track, adding extra emotional punch with every chorus."
MaryLeigh Roohan has perfected her alternative Americana style and songwriting over the years. Her songs have connected with listeners on a deep level, and earned her fans throughout the country. Dark, sultry vocals and a blues-infused guitar accompaniment have met the perfect pairing on MaryLeigh's latest effort. Her new EP Living Alone delves into dark depths and issues that so many have gone through. Her poignant lyrics touch on many topics, and yet breathes fluidly as one cohesive piece. These lyrics aren't meant to pigeon-hole the songs, but rather connect with each listener in their own personal way. Each person has their story, and while MaryLeigh continues to share hers through her music, she wants others to connect on their own personal level as well.
MaryLeigh Roohan has traveled far and wide to perfect her songwriting abilities. After getting her start at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, Roohan moved to Scotland for a year and consistently refined her craft and performed in pubs. Since moving back to the states, she has played everywhere from intimate cafes to wild festivals and has had the pleasure to open for acts like Milo Greene, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, Sean Rowe, and more. In 2012, the top alt-weekly in New York's capital region, Metroland, named Roohan "Best Female Singer-Songwriter". Dark, sultry vocals and a blues-infused guitar accompaniment have met the perfect pairing on MaryLeigh's latest effort. Her new EP Living Alone will be released on September 25th.
