You never know who you will run into working at a radio station, and yesterday as I was coming out of the bathroom, I came face to face with Mary Lambert. (Yes, I washed my hands.) First thing I said was, "Can I hug you?!"
Back in March, my bestie Kat married her fiance Erin, and the Mary Lambert song "She Keeps Me Warm" was a huge part of the ceremony. Mary's song is also the chorus of the Macklemore song "Same Love",
which has become an equal rights anthem... and makes me cry due to it's beauty.
As we chatted, I couldn't wipe the smile off of my face. Mary is seriously delightful and kind, modest and strong. She has a new album coming out soon, and when asked about it, she let out a huge sigh and said, "I'm just so so so proud of it."
Keep an ear out for her new single "Secrets", which is a bouncy tune that is hard not to love. It's all about acceptance and joy... and there's even a line about mom jeans.
This video is me gushing to Mary about her hit SKMW, and its placement in my life.
I heart you, Mary Lambert.
