Full intensity living without a second to take for granted — that is Mary Bue’s m.o. After moving to Minneapolis in 2016, she has found herself with new band of her dreams and 8th album in the works to reflect that intense philosophy in its title track The World is Your Lover. The world constantly provides us with opportunities to grow, change, and fall in love over and over. Every experience an opportunity to deepen. Rising out of the trauma of sexual assault as sang of in her 2017 EP The Majesty of Beasts, divorce from her husband and bandmate, the opening and closing of her yoga studio, and venturing out into an unknown future, Mary’s new album is full of power pop, piano dream waves, and layers of shimmery 90’s influenced guitars to defy and even proudly display the battle scars.

Joined by new bandmates Jeremy Ylvisaker (The Suburbs, Andrew Bird, HALEY, Jenny Lewis, Alpha Consumer), Steve Price (The Suburbs, Rex Daisy), Richard Medek (Kevin Costner, Eric Koskinen, Mol ly, Maher) and occasional string section Jul ia Floberg (Delphia Cel lo Quartet, Mestofonia) & Shannon Frid-Rubin (Cloud Cult, batterboy), this is a band fit for a kingdom, newly dubbed Mary Bue & the Monarchy.

A prolific songwriter with 7 albums under her belt, Mary’s music touches upon archetypal themes of the human condition: love, loss, triumph, dreams, and the natural world. A longtime student of yoga and psychology since her early teens, Mary weaves sacred subject matter into her songs with inquiries into the spirit, the seeking of deeper levels of consciousness, and deep concern for the environment all mixed into her sometimes crass, real-world hue. For the early half of 2017 Mary was an Artist in Residence at the Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, NM – spending time creating in sol itude, along the Rio Grande river gorge and Sangre de Cristo mountains. She released her 7th project The Majesty of Beasts in May 2017 which landed on 2017’s Best of Minnesota Music lists for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and #3 in the City Pages. Mary’s long-time support of PAVSA (Program for Aid to Victims of Sexual Assault) as well as the release of this EP was also recognized, honoring Mary with 2017 Community Al ly of the Year.
