Mary Collins – Tiny TOPs
Mary Collins is an independent singer/songwriter with an interest in theater making and narrative lyricism. Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Mary is currently attending college at NYU’s campus in Abu Dhabi, where she studies creative writing and music. Her songs draw on her training as a writer, blending striking vocals and captivating guitar lines to portray honest stories and emotions. In her work, Mary often explores topics such as mental health, concepts of home, and the relationship between humans and the environment. She enjoys looking for the fantastic in the mundane. Outside of music, Mary also writes fiction and poetry. Her first EP, Storm Songs, a collection of her earliest work, was released in May 2017 and is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, and Spotify.
About Tiny TOPs: Reserve a private performance on your front lawn or share the gift of music with someone you love.
