Violet Mary

The Smugtown Hustle

A new day rising

What does it take to make authentic music in Smugtown: Hustle!  Violet Mary, the hippy lovechild of Mike and Mel Muscarella,  celebrates its tenth year of making authentic groove-oriented rock music with a new album and fresh lineup.  The Smugtown Hustle features eleven tracks of hooks and harmonies ranging from soulful ballads to protest anthems.  From the needle drop, Violet Mary does what it does best, taking the listener on a journey of the heart and soul.  The lead single, "Heroin", reflects on the toxicity of codependency while the b-side, "This Divide" asks questions of race and privilege.  "The Smugtown Hustle is a collection of stories about us, about Violet Mary but also about the Big Us.  We genuinely hope you find yourself in one of these songs, and that you let us know.  Consider this record an invitation into a community with a great soundtrack!" - Mike of Violet Mary
