Biography

Mary Lorson was vocalist in the bands Madder Rose and Saint Low, and currently fronts Mary Lorson and the Soubrettes. In 2011, Mary released the album, "Burn Baby Burn" and is working on a musical play-in-progress, "Freak Baby and the Kill Thought," about vaudeville wildwoman Eva Tanguay, who Lorson describes as "the first iconic, self-defined, out-of-control American female star. She was to Sarah Bernhart what Janis Joplin was to Helen Hayes--enthralling but dark and kind of crazy."
