Here I Am

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
When Mary Ann Redmond recorded Here I Am in 2000, she was a hot local attraction in the Washington, D.C., area. The expressive, whiskey-voiced singer wasn't well known nationally, but in and around D.C., people really swore by her. And listening to Here I Am, it isn't hard to understand why; this CD is an enriching example of what can happen when soul and rock intersect. All of Redmond's albums have some type of rock influence -- like Tina Turner, Redmond is a soulstress with rock leanings -- but Here I Am is especially rock-minded. Had this release come out in 1970 instead of 2000, it's quite possible that black radio would have responded to Redmond in much the same way...

When Mary Ann Redmond recorded Here I Am in 2000, she was a hot local attraction in the Washington, D.C., area. The expressive, whiskey-voiced singer wasn't well known nationally, but in and around D.C., people really swore by her. And listening to Here I Am, it isn't hard to understand why; this CD is an enriching example of what can happen when soul and rock intersect. All of Redmond's albums have some type of rock influence -- like Tina Turner, Redmond is a soulstress with rock leanings -- but Here I Am is especially rock-minded. Had this release come out in 1970 instead of 2000, it's quite possible that black radio would have responded to Redmond in much the same way that it responded to Ike and Tina Turner back then; in other words, some tracks would have enjoyed airplay on black radio, and some would have been considered "too rock." It's easy to envision the black radio of the late '60s and early '70s playing "Out on a Limb" or Redmond's version of the Supremes' "Stop in the Name of Love" which she transforms into a slow, moody ballad. However, "Man on a Mission," the title track, and John Hiatt's "Cry Love" probably would have been considered "too rock" for black stations just like some of Ike and Tina Turner's work. Regardless, Redmond is consistently soulful and funky. And while it is interesting to speculate on how Here I Am would have been received 25 or 30 years earlier, the fact is that Redmond isn't dealing with the '60s or '70s market -- she's dealing with the 21st century market. In 2000, this excellent album was well received in the D.C. area, although one hoped that Redmond would become as well known nationally as she was locally.

    Just Plain Beautiful

    Even the neophyte can appreciate Mary Ann's talent -- a voice that she has largely kept to live performances, a voice that has gained recognition and respect from Billboard magazine. This album, however is really something else. Where Redmond's previous album ''Live'' showed her amazing range and power, this album somehow fits like cashmere. The album has re-engineered covers that sound like wholly new songs; it has originals that will surely become anthems (they have for me, already); and it features a contribution from Mary Chapin Carpenter -- I don't think you should buy the album just because MCC's name is associated with it, either. Her song Alone But Not Lonely is one of those haunting-but-beautiful tunes that Ms. Carpenter can write like nobody's business. Mary Ann's voice just wraps around it. Grammy winners are all over this album. I don't know if Redmond has the starpower to garner the attention, but I would like to see a nomination for such a wonderful work. I could go on -- I start off most every day with this album and hum it on my way to work. I put it on for dinners and people ask me to bring it. People have asked if they could tape it since it's been slow to release for some reason, but I really want to see Mary Ann Redmond have the kind of broader recognition she deserves, and this her first national release is the next best opportunity. FWIW, I buy albums if they have at least two good songs (four if there's a listening station). I have this for eight.
