"Chock-full of acoustic darlings, 'The Cabin Sessions' maintains a
harmonious ambiance throughout. From the country, electric vibe of
"North Country Snow" to the moody strokes of "Closure," the album
shows Hubley's ability to push the envelope of acoustic music."
~Greg Watry, NJ Herald

Affectionately described by her peers as "NJ's Joni Mitchell", Mary Hubley, known as Maribyrd,
is a singer/songwriter, born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of Northern NJ.
Her live performances range from intimate and acoustic, to dynamic full bands, and everything in
between. Both fronting her own projects and sitting in with artists throughout NJ, NY, & PA, she
plays acoustic guitar, mandolin, a little bass, and has both a gift and a passion for harmonies.
"Ethereal" and "floating" are words commonly used in regard to her vocals. Byrd started playing
music as a teenager, self taught on her mom's old nylon string Yamaha...that's when she started
writing. Maribyrd's debut album "Joe's Basemant" was recorded in 2002, and is peppered with of
some of the most talented musicians in the north jersey music scene. Hubley explored a variety
of career paths, performing occationally, always keeping music in her back pocket. The call to
sing finally became too loud to ignore, and 13 years later, she found herself back in the studio.

"The Cabin Sessions" was released the summer of 2015, followed by the debut album from her
band Byrdgrass in 2016. Byrd can also be found performing with Christina Alessi and The Toll Collectors
who released their debut EP, "Raindrops and Watercolors" in 2020. Maribyrd's 3rd studio album 'Moments'
was thoughtfully pieced together over the course of 2 years, during the covid pandemic. Recorded by Damian
Calcagne at The Pinebox, this album represents a culmination of old and new songs, brought to life by some
NJ's top shelf musicians, including Joe Cirotti, Peter Lister, Caleb Estey and John Skehan III to name a few.
The album was mixed and produced by Damian, Maribyrd, and Pete Lister, and released in 2023.

Pursuing her calling, Maribyrd is spending more time on the road. She plays regularly
throughout NJ, PA, upstate NY and New England, has been a showcased songwriter in
Asheville and Nasheville, and in 2016 completed her 1st cross country tour, successfully
singing her way out to Seattle and back, winning over the hearts new fans by the minute
