MaryLynn was a founding member of the Grammy-nominated vocal jazz group, Rare Silk. The group got their start in Boulder, CO. Their very first album, New Weave flew to the top of the Billboard Jazz charts and received 2 Grammy nominations. MaryLynn and the group toured the world singing in the US, Europe, and Japan. Rare Silk received acclaim working alongside artists such as Miles Davis, Branford Marsalis, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, and opening acts for Spyro Gyra and BB King. Their touring took them to some of the best venues in the country – The Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, Jacksonville Jazz Festival, Blues Alley in DC, New York Jazz clubs, and Boston Globe Jazz Festival, to name a few.
MaryLynn’ performs locally in Louisville, Boulder, and Denver with different musical configurations, including the vocal quartet, ‘Quirktett’, with Terri Jo Jenkins, John Bertram, and Julie Monley. She also produced a series of successful Jazz House Concerts at her Louisville Main St. Photography Studio. Her self-produced CD ‘Starlight’ received solid airplay on Denver’s Jazz station KUVO.
