The Star Of Broadway's "A Night With Janis Joplin" MARY BRIDGET DAVIES
Fresh from starring on Broadway's A Night with Janis Joplin! Tony Award nominee Mary Bridget Davies has received numerous awards for her voice and band. Most recently her new album was nominated for a 2013 Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut.

Mary Bridget Davies' journey as a Blues Diva began in 2002 with a Robert Lockwood Jr. (March 27, 1915 - November 21, 2006) jam one night at the original Fat Fish Blue in her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio and had the opportunity of sitting in with the maestro on several future occasions including a Katrina benefit in 2005 joined by Buddy Miles. She met her first band around this time and it didn't take long before the band was touring nationally and representing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the International Blues Challenge two years in a row. The band has been nominated several times by the Cleveland Scene and Free Times for "Best Blues Band" and Davies won the "Best Vocalist Award" in 2004.

In 2005, Davies secured an open-call audition for the smash Off-Broadway musical, Love, Janis, when they needed a new lead actress/vocalist to portray Janis Joplin. She auditioned and out of roughly 150 actors, she came out with the lead role. Love, Janis has toured the country with Mary at the "Janis" helm since. Big Brother & the Holding Co., Joplin's original band, asked Mary to sing for them in 2006 and she has enjoyed European tours and shows all over the US with the guys since.

Another amazing opportunity presented itself during the summer of 2007 when Mary was asked to join the cast of the Tony Award nominated Broadway musical It Ain't Nothin' but the Blues performed at Theatre Aspen in Colorado. This musical revue traces the history of blues music with more than three dozen songs.

In 2010 Mary moved to Kansas City, recorded her debut blues album, Wanna Feel Somethin', at West End Studios, in KC and was nominated "Best Blues Album" by Kansas City Pitch. Mary and her band recently competed in the 2011 International Blues Challenge and won 2nd place in the band category out of 110 bands.
