MaryAnne is a vocalist of considerable talent and class and her smooth, soulful vocals are sheer perfection. She brings a wealth of diversity to this project having trained as an Actor at the prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA). Her career has taken her all over the world where she has performed to critical acclaim in London & on Broadway with residencies at some of New York’s most famous Jazz/Cabaret venues. Here experience in New York is evident in the way this young lady grooves, and with the support of these talented musicians, a night with The Mac Project is one you will never forget.
These young peeps have performed in some of Australia’s most recognised music venues - Hamer Hall, The State Theatre speakers and Jazz Venues -The Paris Cat, Bennetts Lane & The Apartment. MaryAnne has performed leading roles in many major Commercial Theatre speakers productions, and consequently has received nominations for some of the country’s most respected Theatre speakers and Writing Awards.
Some may say she has conquered it all, but it is only now that this talented young artist feels she is truly getting back to what resonates most deeply with her….the music.
