Mary Neil wrote her first song when she was sixteen years old and released her first album, "Like The River”, more than ten years later. This project is a culmination of tunes that span Mary Neil's teenage years and into her late twenties. It shows songwriting in its most wholesome form: out of pure necessity.
The album has been used to raise awareness for the Teton Regional Land Trust’s mission: “to conserve agricultural and natural lands and to encourage land stewardship in the Upper Snake River Watershed for the benefit of today’s communities and as a legacy for future generations.”
Mary Neil spent a few months in Nashville, Tennessee. She performs her newly (at the time) re-written song, "The Storm" at the world famous Bluebird Cafe open mic.
