First heard of Mara Hruby when Big K.R.I.T. posted a picture of the two of them chillin’ outside of Atlanta’s premiere recording studio, Tree Sound.  With the mention of Tree Sound came the peaked curiosity of what they may be creating together and, more importantly, who the young lady could be.  After doing a little research, I discovered From Her Eyes, the 7-track EP from the Oakland, Ca. native.  A beautiful surprise, Hruby transforms her favorite male artists’ popular songs into a work that could (almost) be claimed as her own.  From D’Angelo’s “Send It On” to Van Hunt’s “Character,” the young singer seemingly takes ownership of every lyric and remixed melody, creating tunes from her perspective.

She has a new EP, Archaic Rapture, set to be released March 18th.  Until then, get familiar with her by checking out her cover of Andre Benjamin’s “Take Off Your Cool.”
