2017 MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting Contest winner and 2018 Songwriter Serenade winner Mary Bragg spent 10 years living in New York City after a small town upbringing in south Georgia. With candor and subtlety, Bragg’s songs probe the common journey to discover our truest selves outside of our families and communities in which we are raised. Now based in Nashville, her 2017 release Lucky Strike was lauded by Craig Havighurst (WMOT Roots Radio) as “infectious, smart, and resonant,” and her new side project with Becky Warren, The Reckless Electric, was dubbed by Rolling Stone as “a force to be reckoned with.”
“Sublime distilling of southern grit; subtly refining the folk-country singer-songwriter template.”
