“Ace songwriter Mary Bragg credits fans’ and critics’ enthusiastic response to her 2017 LP Lucky Strike with inspiring her to rely on her instincts.”
-Nashville Scene

“Splendid… Bragg’s true stories that deal with imperfection in the real world are here to stay.”

“Violets’ 14 tracks are among the most intensely personal Bragg has ever written.”

“Like the long-lost ballad Patsy Cline never got to croon, “I Thought You Were Somebody Else” mixes classic country twang with broken-hearted sentiment and light touches of pedal steel.”
-Rolling Stone Country

“A sorrowful, sparse song… lyrics floating along with a light drum beat, mournful guitar and Bragg’s soaring vocals.”
-The Boot

“Refined, sumptuously melancholy take on Southern storytelling.”
-NPR’s World Cafe

“A force to be reckoned with.”
-Marissa Moss, on The Reckless Electric, Mary’s side project with Becky Warren


“Sublime distilling of southern grit… subtly refining the folk-country singer-songwriter template.”
-Jewly Hight (NPR Music, Best Music of 2017)


“Infectious, smart, and resonant. If you love classic Buddy and Julie Miller material, you ought to know about this transplanted Georgian.” -Craig Havighurst (WMOT Roots Radio, Music City Roots)

Interview & Video Premiere:
“Americana Queen Mary Bragg just self-released her fourth album, Lucky Strike, a record that beautifully weaves rock, folk, and Americana.” -Annalise Domenighini

Interview & Live Video Premiere of “Bayou Lullaby” -Matt Bjorke

“With a voice like a clear mountain stream, rippled with emotion and swirled with a hint of gold-dust gravel, she infuses each song with a panful of passion quickened by intelligent lyrics and resonant melodies, all backed up by superb musicianship and production.” -Jon Sobel

Who’s New Interview with Annie Reuter

“Whether accompanied by upbeat acoustic licks or aching pedal steel, Bragg’s crystalline voice is the centerpiece of the album that elevates this revealing glimpse into her soul. Lucky Strike carries a distinctive authenticity, born through the intimate connection made with the listener through her vulnerable, soul-baring lyrics.” -George Maifair

“Raw, vulnerable, at times even visceral, Bragg will transport you lyrically and with her remarkably emotive vocals.” -Jim Hynes

Critics Pick: “Bragg applies her decorous voice to the material she wrote for Edge of This Town, which finds her exploring the tension between authenticity and success – a rich subject for an Americana artist.” -Edd Hurt

“Bragg’s naturally sweet and pleasingly plaintive vocals shine against a mixture of country, folk, and rock creating a magnificent collection of Americana.” -April Wolfe

I’m trying to forget, Bragg sings with graceful sorrow.
But some marks last even longer than those in the title.” -Brian Mansfield

“Deft, polished balance of sweet,
nuanced folk and richly embroidered alt-country.”


“She’s got the voice, and she’s got the writing chops.”

“Known for putting on a powerful show.”

“Inspires tears of love, loss and real human emotion.”


“Assured yet vulnerable.”

“Incredible presence.”

“Delectable folk-pop delivered in a crystalline voice.”
