Mary Middlefield

She has turned her back on classical music. Lucky for us. Otherwise we would not be able to immerse ourselves in the world of Mary Middlefield. She has exceptional maturity and expressiveness.

Once upon a time in Switzerland, a brilliant young classical musician had her heart broken. It was May 2020 and Mary Middlefield had been playing the violin for 15 years. She was about to graduate with honors and everything was going well - until she realized that the boy who had left her held the key to the next chapter of her life.

"Thank You Alexander" announces that Middlefield is a significant new female talent with so much wisdom to share. Heartbreak was the catalyst, but that's just the beginning: in 12 songs, the young songwriter talks about loneliness, forgiveness, abuse, growing up and many other topics. We're lucky to live in a time when many female singer-songwriters are turning their personal pain into something wonderful, but Middlefield's voice and vision are more complex than most of them. There's the shimmering elegance of a childhood and adolescence spent in the classical world until rebellion was the only option. All she brings with her are judgments and the pressure of having to fail. Middlefield wears her heart on her sleeve and doesn't shy away from the musicians she learned from.
