MARY ANN YOUNG
Singer, Songwriter, and Musician
"I am not driven by the desire to be famous. If I live my life experiencing the joy of having a few TRUE friends, then I will have lived a very rich life. I also don't want to live a life of mediocrity; I truly DO want to press on toward a higher mark. I want to leave a legacy that will endure for generations. I want my life to count for something that is bigger than me."

*Mary Ann has always been drawn to creating music. At the age of eight, Mary Ann began her studies in piano and having an unusually gifted ear for music, began pursuing other instruments not long after. At the age of ten, she began her studies in percussion where she learned how to play a wide variety of percussive instruments. At the age of sixteen, Mary Ann began playing the acoustic guitar and later learned how to play the bass guitar. She has recently picked up another stringed instrument - the mountain dulcimer. *The video featured below on this page was composed and performed only after several weeks of learning how to play the dulcimer. You will be amazed that Mary Ann had never studied or touched this instrument before this time, yet was able to create a beautiful piece that is currently enjoyed by listeners everywhere.
One of Mary Ann's highlights in her musical career was when she was invited as a guest artist and interviewed on the popular television show, Sacramento & Company on News10 (ABC). She has also had the opportunity in the past to travel with bands throughout the United States and to different parts of the world, sharing the gift of music.
Her latest 2018 album, Instrumental Music to Soothe Your Soul, is currently being featured on Pandora Radio. Don't forget to look up Mary Ann's music on Spotify and many other music streaming programs.
