Loving Mary


When you lock six accomplished music industry veterans in a room magic

tends to happen. Born one night out of that magic was the band Loving

Mary. Rebecca Lynn Howard, Suzie McNeil, Elisha Hoffman and Marti

Frederiksen fuse their talents and experiences together into four-piece

harmonies that dip from Americana to Country with a spin of Rock-n-Roll.

With the addition of Andrew Mactaggart and Sarah Tomek, Loving Mary is a

real-life family band, and the coming together of respected artists who have

each paved their way through the music industry, behind the scenes and

on stage.

Rebecca Lynn Howard

A two-time Grammy Award winner originally from Kentucky.

Rebecca’s songs have been recorded by Maritna McBride, Trisha Yearwood Juliana

Hough and John Michael Montgomery. Her voice and lyrics won over critics and fans

alike with her smash hit “Forgive.” The song garnered Rebecca ACM award nominations

for Best New Female Vocalist and Song of the Year.

Suzie McNeil

Was the last woman standing on CBS’s Rockstar: INXS competition show.

She has since released four albums in Canada, collaborated with Pink, INXS and Clay

Aiken and had the honor of singing at the 2010 Olympics closing ceremonies. Along the

way she has been nominated for multiple awards including a Juno Award.

Elisha Hoffman

An in-demand songwriter who has worked with everyone from The

Academy, New Medicine, American Bang, Decypher Down, Fighting with Wire, Emphatic

to Faith Hill, Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain. Elisha’s song “Race You to the Bottom,”

performed by New Medicine hit the top #15 Billboard Radio Hit. He has also had the

pleasure of watching Leighton Meester and Garrett Hedlund sing his song “Give in to

Me” on the big screen in the feature film “Country Strong.”

Marti Frederiksen

Has written and produced some of the major hits of the past two

decades including, but not only, “Jaded” by Aerosmith, “Undo It” by Carrie Underwood,

Andrew Mactaggart

Has played guitar with the most elite groups and artists across

Canada. He has worked with Juno award winner Tomi Swick, Tim Hicks, Dallas Smith

and Jason McCoy to name a few. Andrew is in high demand both on stage and in the

studio because of his unique guitar tone and slick precision.

Sarah Tomek

 Born and raised in Asbury Park, NJ, Sarah found herself behind the kit at an

early age. Her precocious ability to play a multitude of genres with effortless pocket and

feel made her the easy choice for many producers; recording and playing for Maggie

Rose, Glen Burtnik, Gedeon Luke, Lance Larson, Jon Bon Jovi, and of course Loving
