From Mary Schieferstein
In a world where insecurities abound, Mary Schieferstein works hard to push past her fears of inadequacy and make music. She loves to write lyrics and melodies, pouring her thoughts, her feelings, and her self into the words and the notes. Her music is most often classified as folk, though the best description for her work would be indie, as all of her recording and mixing is done at her home and she does all of the artwork for her albums herself. Mary's most recent project, Masterpiece, includes twelve tracks. The songs center around the theme that we are God's "poiema" - His poem, His masterpiece! Mary is not entirely sure where her music is headed, but she knows that she will not stop. “It's as if I've fallen in love with this, and that love grows deeper every day,” she states. “I just can't stop making music. I don't know where that's going to take me, but I think He's telling me to go and take it to the world. Scary thought, but, if that's where He wants me to go, I'm going."
