Country rock sextet The Loving Mary Band will release its debut full-length album Little Bit Of Love on Oct. 28 via Round Hill Records/Sony/Red.
Formed in Nashville, The Loving Mary Band was hand-picked by Aerosmith lead singer and BMLG solo artist Steven Tyler to play as his backing band on his current North American tour.
The band includes four singer-songwriter-producers and two musicians. Lead vocalist/guitarist Marti Frederiksen has written and produced hits songs for Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Carrie Underwood and more. He also sang all vocal parts in the mythical band Stillwater from the movie, Almost Famous. Lead vocalist/harmonica player Suzie McNeil is best known from the TV show, Rock Star: INXS, and has had a successful career in her native Canada. Lead vocalist/bassist Rebecca Lynn Howard previously recorded for Decca Records, MCA Nashville, Arista Nashville, and Show Dog Nashville. Her highest-charting song, “Forgive,” reached No. 12 on the country charts in 2002.
Mandolinist/banjo player Elisha Hoffman co-wrote “Give In To Me” from the motion picture Country Strong. Rounding out The Loving Mary Band are drummer Sarah Tomek, who has played with such artists as Jon Bon Jovi, and guitarist Andrew Mactaggart.
Round Hill Records SVP/GM Mark Brown said, “Rarely have I had the opportunity to work with a group as exceptionally talented as The Loving Mary Band. Individually, each is a great vocalist, songwriter and musician. Together, they become the best band I know. The great harmonies, superior songwriting, skilled instrumentation, and brilliant orchestration delivered at the highest level make them a remarkable group. It is a real privilege to work with them.”
