Tony Award®-nominated singer MARY BRIDGET DAVIES’ journey began in her hometown of Cleveland, OH in 2001 when she first started singing in local bands, and she hasn’t slowed down since.
The powerhouse rock and blues singer’s love of music was instilled by her parents, who raised her on a healthy diet of the Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Joe Cocker and, naturally, Janis Joplin. She cites an array of contemporary artists she loves ranging from Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Avett Brothers and Florence & The Machine to Nicky Minaj, and Eminem.
Upon gaining local acclaim for her work in various rock bands, she was asked to sit in with Big Brother & The Holding Company (Janis Joplin’s original band, with whom she would later tour) as well as legendary blues guitarist RobertLockwood Jr. Her travels have taken her around the world, including a 2 year pre-Broadway run with “A Night With Janis Joplin.”
She received her Tony® nomination for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical.” when the show debuted on Broadway in 2013.
