Mary Gantley is a singer songwriter from Tullyallen, County Louth and a hidden talent whose light has recently emerged with her recent release and her last single, the very popular ‘Hanging In My Room’.
Her new single ‘I Love You to Bits (Morning Star Wedding Song)’ is a love letter to her home beside the Boyne River, King William’s Glen and her local bar ‘The Morning Star’ all located in the village of Tullyallen.
The lyrics and melody of this beautiful ballad are reminiscent of some of the great Irish folk songs of the past, showing how Mary’s observational skills work in tandem with her knowledge of musical structure.
Mary amazingly began her musical journey as a church organist at the tender age of ten and then trained on piano and organ at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin where she went on to train other musicians to high grade levels.
In the gigging world she began singing and playing keyboards in bands at 19 and is now playing her own various solo gigs around the County Louth area and beyond.
And even though she wrote her first song at 8 it is now Mary Gantley the songwriter has arrived…enjoy!
