Mary Beth's Music & New Projects

Mary Beth Maziarz is a professional songwriter, performer, workshop facilitator, and author.   Born in north-central Illinois, she enjoyed an international education, then settled in Park City, Utah, where she lives today with her husband, photographer Mark Maziarz, and baby daughter Daisy.  

Mary Beth founded her record company, Musaic Records, in 1996 and has released seven albums on this established indie label.  Her music has appeared in over fifty television shows and films, and Mary Beth even appeared as herself on an episode of Dawson's Creek during her work with the popular show.  

There is currently a lot to do around chez Maziarz -- besides writing, recording, and concerts, Mary Beth has a book in the works, several upcoming workshops, and a couple other really exciting (at the moment still being developed) projects in the works that we'll be announcing over the next few months.  

Thanks for visiting this site and for supporting independent music.  Best wishes!

MB live concert video: "True Believer"

Shine Shine Shine This song was inspired by the power of women when we uplift and empower each other. Perhaps we all need a little help shining up our rougher diamond edges from time to time. 4.26 MB
The Good Life Riding in a convertible, top down, on a beautiful summer day...hanging out reading on the perfect shady porch...enjoying a great meal with wonderful friends and laughing all night...these are the elements of 'the good life' as we tend to see it -- and this song was inspired by the vibe of what really makes us feel thankful and free and light. 4.79 MB
Be Better There are, for most of us, periods that weigh you down, trip you up, mess with your idea of who you are and who you believe you can be. This song came from a deep consideration of the very hard work it takes to emerge from those down times. Finding the faith, the desire to 'be better', seems to drive the ability to move forward and reclaim life after depression, addiction, abuse, or whatever the cause. 6.61 MB
We've Been There A dear friend has told me such great stories about her family over the years. . . I'm constantly laughing and shaking me head with amazement at their adventures and faith and depth of devotion for each other. As she approached her 27th wedding anniversary, she asked if I'd consider writing a song for her and her husband integrating personal stories from their lives. This one emerged, and like so many special moments in writing, kept me hanging til the LAST second to see how it was all going to tie together. (I whooped from the living room with relief and delight when it clicked into place!). I swear sometimes I'm just a witness, not the writer. I hope to be able to share as full and loving a memoir of marriage and family when the time comes. 7.01 MB
Cover of "Close to You" by The Carpenters This song is such a treasure. . . it always felt kind of heartbreaking to me -- sung upbeat and with a smile by the ever-graceful Karen Carpenter, who later was revealed to be suffering so much privately through most of her career. We recorded this take on a reel-to-reel and were about to run out of tape when we decided to try to get this track down. Thankfully it clicked 'off' RIGHT after the fade of the last note was coming to an end. Though I was in a pensive, reminiscent mood while recording it, upon some listens it has a little bit of a spooky stalkery vibe. Which is always interesting :) 3.02 MB
