Mary Lorson and Saint Low
Mary Lorson was the lead singer of the alt-pop band Madder Rose in the 1990’s (see CV catalog for more details). Embarking on a different aesthetic journey, Lorson launched Mary Lorson and Saint Low in 1999, releasing the acclaimed debut “Saint Low” on CV in 2000. “Tricks for Dawn” (2002) and “Realistic” (2005) featured solid pop songs, and the intervening “Piano Creeps” showed the fruits of Lorson’s film-scoring collaboration with Billy Cote. Lorson has performed solo at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and has toured Europe as keyboard player and backing singer for Tanya Donelly and Willard Grant Conspiracy.
Madder Rose’s songs have appeared in “The Sopranos,” “Mad Love,” and numerous television shows; ML and SL songs have appeared in “Alias,” “Felicity” and other television shows and feature films. In 2006, Lorson and Cote contributed music to Lori Benson’s HBO documentary “Dear Talulah” and the pair scored the HBO documentary “What Remains” about art photographer Sally Mann. Lorosn and Cote are currently planning the score for a documentary about the Provincetown, MA art colony.
