The Stories of the Upstate™ #295: (Mary Norris) "Sometimes I communicate using animal noises rather than using English."

                                      Spartanburg singer-songwriter, Mary Norris delivers Story #295


"I text myself lyrics," Spartanburg singer-songwriter, Mary Norris told us as she explained that she finds inspiration all over the place, often while she is doing something else, like driving.  She has a song about love inspired by watching birds with her Grandmother and thinking about the beautiful bird we put in cages.  The love of music struck Mary early.  Her parents recall that as a toddler, she insisted on watching the end credits of a TV show or movie because she was fascinated by the ending music.  These days she gives an outlet for that love of music through her solo singer-songwriting and being the lead singer of Hot As A Pepper.
