Those familiar with Mary Lambert already know that she’s an artist who bares every aspect of her soul through her art, be it music or spoken word.

But if Mary Lambert is new to you, you might not have known that her moving performance on the single, Same Love, from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ The Heist, played a huge part in helping pass the marriage equality bill in Washington state.

Now, her own EP is out.  Letters Don’t Talk is a stunning confession of sadness, anger, and hope, and holds a mirror up to society, demanding nothing less than naked honesty.

On this week’s episode of SMI Radio, we take you inside Bedlam Coffee for a revealing look into Mary’s heart. She  talks about how her life has changed since the release of Same Love and her performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Mary also opens up about her spiritual life, the distinctions of crafting songs versus slam poetry, and her upcoming tour that will take her to the East Coast.

Her sendoff show and release of her book of poetry is at Fremont Abbey Saturday night, January 19th.Tickets are available here.

If you can’t make it to Fremont, check out the photos of Mary playing the Seattle Living Room / Melodic Caring Project show from January 5th…

The second half of this week’s episode features a visit to the rehearsal space of The Local Strangers. Aubrey Zoli and Matt Hart are coming off an exceptional performance at Doe Bay last weekend, and they open up about how they formed their musical partnership and created their newest record, Left For Better.

The Local Strangers will be playing the Cypress Wine Bar at The Westin on March 8. If you’re heading to South by Southwest 2013, catch them there March 13th.
