Episode 1264: Mary Lee Kortes

Hello friends! New York City based, singer-songwriter and author, Mary Lee Kortes is my guest for episode 1264! Her latest album, produced by the legendary Hal Wilner, Will Anybody Know That I Was Here: The Songs of Beulah Rowley is a musical exploration of the songs of dustbowl era regional singer Beulah Rowley - a character created by Kortes whose story remains elusive and tragic. The album will be released on vinyl as a "Record Store Day Exclusive" on April 22nd, but you can go hear the first singles from the album wherever you stream or download music. Go to for music, videos and more. Mary Lee and I have an amazing conversation about coming up with the concept for Will Anybody Know That I Was Here: The Songs of Beulah Rowley and the years it took to complete, working with legendary producer Hal Wilner before his passing in 2020 and Joe Jackson, writing songs for Amy Grant and The Pointer Sisters in the 80's, Mary Lee's Corvette, working at the United Nations and much more. I had a great time getting to know Mary Lee. I'm sure you will too. Let's get down!
