Not a single lyric on Songs Were Made to Sing was written by Mary Stallings, but each one represents a chapter in her life and a piece of her soul. On her latest album, due out May 17 from Smoke Sessions Records, the incomparable vocalist has crafted an exquisite collection of classic songs to reflect on a life well and passionately lived. With Songs Were Made to Sing, Stallings puts her distinctive stamp on a diverse set of 13 songs, using her gift for interpreting a lyric to transform familiar melodies into profoundly personal and captivating stories. From the youthful passions and heartbreaks of "Stolen Moments" and "Lover Man," to the wistful ruminations of "While You're Young" and "Give Me the Simple Life," Songs Were Made to Sing travels a journey of decades, with songs that collect wisdom and maturity along the way. Impulse ripens to romance, hope deepens to reflection, and Stallings' voice captures every emotional step along that path with a perfectly chosen lyric from some of the greatest songwriters of all time.
