Urgency…

It is the title of her new album and for Maree McRae the music contained therein is deeply personal. Begun as an Americana / Country studio project, something delightfully odd happened on its way to radio stations across the land. One of the tracks, “Breeze” became the #1 most added single in the country making it’s mark nationally at #7, alongside TAYLOR SWIFT, on Adult Contemporary Radio.

But, as you will hear, the real story is how “Urgency” came to be. Maree wrote the title track in her car after exiting a Denver hospital where her 18-year old son had just been diagnosed with a serious immune system disorder. Something he had suffered with since birth.

Maree has been compared to Jewel, Mary Chapin Carpentar and Michelle Branch, a distinction she richly deserves. We think you will agree.

Crank up your headphones and enjoy our special interview with this incredibly gifted singer-songwriter. Then get out and support her the next time Maree plays out in Rocky Mountan high country. A schedule of upcoming gigs can be found on her website.

NOTE: this show first aired on May 5, 2010.
