About Mary Scholz:
Internationally touring singer/songwriter Mary Scholz is a live circuit favorite. Touring all over the US, Europe and the UK, the Philadelphia born, Los Angeles based artist is best known for her warm, lyrical voice, her folk/rock melodies, her thoughtful guitar work, and her personal connection to her audience on stage. Much of Scholz’s material addresses transition, with bittersweet melodies and lyrics that speak of the importance of knowing yourself, and the strength it takes to trust your intuition – to always move forward. Her 2014 release, The Girl You Thought You Knew laced folk with pop to walk through the struggles of ending a significant relationship (aka divorce). The record included the HMMA nominated Bridges We Burn. Her new record, California, released in September, is a dive into the more raw, organic side of Scholz’s songwriting, which has garnered her the nickname “Folk Explorer” with musicians in town. It was recorded live, in one room, to an Ampex 8 track tape machine, and will be her first vinyl pressing. It is about moving forward. Continuing the journey.
Shared stages include David Poe, David Ryan Harris, Howie Day, Michelle Lewis, Chris Trapper, Eric Hutchinson, and more.
Joining Mary on this tour, on electric and acoustic guitar, is Zachary Ross. Ross is a Kansas born, Los Angeles based musician who has toured the country with various acts, playing large arenas and intimate blues clubs all over the US. He appears on various records, including Scholz's California. Also a vocalist, writer and film composer, Zachary has had a multifaceted career. Before hitting the road as a the steady right-hand-man, he was frontman of his own projects, and works often in film and television.
Scholz and Ross have been playing as a guitar duo for a year and a half, performing shows all over the US.
