A Moment With Mara Hruby in The Attic of Love [Video]

Living in The San Francisco Bay Area myself, vocalist Mara Hruby who hails from Oakland, California is a pretty big deal.  Last year around this time Hruby released her debut EP From Her Eyes; a project including covers of her favorite songs from male vocalists notably D’Angelo‘s “Send It On,” and Van Hunt‘s “Character.”  Since that release, Hruby has been making a huge name for herself in and out of the Bay Area with spotlights around the blogosphere, as well as being part of the Sartorial Sounds along with Jesse Boykins III, Joshua Bennet, Joe Kenneth, Melo-X, Theo Martins and Rinaldy Alvarez.  A year later, Hruby is set to headline her first show at the legendary and historic Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland.

In this video, shot by Melinda James for AboutHerFilms, Hruby takes us to The Attic of Love where she recorded her EP for an in-depth and personal interview.  We learn about why she wears the jewelry that she does, how music was always a constant in her life, as well as why her cover of D’Angelo’s classic “Send It On,” was the hardest cover to do on the EP.  Her voice sounds beautiful, if you still have not downloaded Hruby’s debut From Her Eyes, download the project here for free via Hruby’s BandCamp Page.  

As an added bonus, watch live footage of the recording of her new original song, “Lucky (I Love You),” off her upcoming album which will be released in 2012;
