Hello everyone, and welcome to my site! I'm so happy that you've visited.
I'm a crossover singer who performs music across a wide spectrum of genres and styles, including the Great American Songbook, jazz, musical theater, opera / classicaland contemporary song.
My forte is my versatility and vocal agility as well as my ability to connect with audiences and truthfully interpret a song. As a vocalist, I perform as a concert singer, a cabaret singer and opera singer and I'm also a stage actress. I do solo work and collaborate with a variety of musicians and groups and perform with a dynamic combo, the Mary Carrick Collective.
While I'm based in Nebraska, I'll travel anywhere to sing and I perform in traditional as well as non-traditional venues, including private house concerts in homes. Sharing music is one of the great joys of my life.
I've had a particularly exciting year with my debut album, Let's Fly having been released in the spring and other wonderful projects currently taking place and on the horizon.

"The best cabaret show this reviewer has seen in a long, long time. It's hard to decide what's more entertaining: Carrick's glorious mezzo voice or her amusing patter between impeccably chosen Broadway songs. Her playlist mixes standards and obscure gems into a warm, moving and wildly entertaining evening."
