Lyricist, singer, and songwriter MaryAnn Stefanik has been a lifelong lover of music. MaryAnn has several releases under her belt, including the albums A Rose…Is a Rose…Is a Rose (2006) and Transparent (2017), along with several single releases as well. Now, she’s back with another single in her signature rock style. The Outsider showcases the highlights of MaryAnn’s music and gives us a glimpse into her memorable sound.
Opening with driving guitars and intense percussion, The Outsider is full of energy from start to finish. It has a refined modern sound, well blended but not overly complex, allowing the story at hand to be the star of the show. And as a result, MaryAnn’s vocals are no doubt at the center of this track, her smoky and refined tone bringing authenticity into the mix.
The lyrics are another high point of this production. In this track, we’re told the story of “the outsider” and his ability to triumph over all others walking a more traditional path. MaryAnn utilizes a mix of straightforward imagery and poetic flair to convey the message:
“People are resilient win draw or lose
the places are decided by who is who is who
There really is no telling what your opponent may do
You been dealt the hand now you must see it through”
Fun, confident, and vibrant – MaryAnn has a distinctive and artistic sound. Her work on this single The Outsider is energetic, engaging, and sure to win fans.
