ButterlyLCM Promos is thrilled to launch the latest single ‘Blue Mandolin’ from Maria Butterly, who stands poised to be the new jewel in the crown in Ireland’s rich crop of musical talent. Lauded on TV3’s Ireland AM as “One of Ireland’s most talented Singer/Songwriters” Maria soon delivered on such promise with the much-prized ‘Songwriter of the Year’ accolade at the 2013 Leinster Entertainment Awards. Her first single ‘Angel’ launched her into the spotlight as a contestant on this year’s Glor Tire on TG4. Maria’s original style draws on influences from both the Celtic/Irish Folk genre and the American Country genre, as can be heard on ‘Blue Mandolin’.

Originally from Laytown, Co Meath, Maria lived & toured in Nashville & LA, USA, for a number of years, perfecting her repertoire performing at hit venues such as Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, The House of Blues (LA), and New York’s world famous Mercury Lounge having played alongside such icons as Bob Wooten (Johnny Cash’s Band), Raul Malo (The Mavericks), Hal Ketchum, Damien Rice, Eleanor McEvoy, and Mundy. Headlined the ‘Angelica Huston Gala Event’ at Beverly Hilton, Los Angeles & won previous awards at the ‘New York International Film & Music Festival’ She recently performed her song ‘Quiet Man’ to Hollywood Star MAUREEN O’HARA on her 90th Birthday. Furthermore, Maria is now showcasing her talent as a co-writer on the new upcoming album (self titled Blue Mandolin, produced by Bill Shanley) with Nashville No.1 hit writers Kostas Lasarides (who penned ‘What a Cryin Shame’ for the Mavericks) and Charles Quarto (songwriter for Crosby, Stills & Nash; Garth Brooks), as well as Ireland’s very own Charlie McGettigan. Maria says: ‘I have a specific style and sound that I wanted to create and not just blend in with the other genres but to create a new one, my own as Maria Butterly.”

“One of the strongest contestants ever on Glor Tire, particularly smooth – in fact utterly butterly” – JOHN CREEDON, RTE “This album is the best local production to come out of Ireland since A Womans Heart” – PETER BARDON, BARDIS MUSIC PUBLISHING
