Fronted by song writing duo, vocalist Maria Mitar and Producer Richard Petkovic , Blue Mary build on traditional indie pop rock roots to create a refreshing take on contemporary new Australian music, with a sacred twist. The songwriting duo were inspired by the talent and sounds of their multicultural neighbourhoods, and their own spiritual journey, that they decided to create a band that encompassed all these aspects.
“BLUE MARY HAS SUCCESSFULLY UNITED THE SOUNDS OF THE WORLD INTO MOVING BALLADS AND POWERFUL TRIBAL LACED SACRED POP. BLUE MARY ARE THE FUTURE FOR A DIVERSE AUSTRALIA”.

MUSIC COLLABORATIONS & OTHER PROJECTS
Blue Mary performs as part of the Sydney World Music Chamber Orchestra project, with three of our songs being included in the 'Three Sides of Love and Death' repertoire.
We also recently collaborated with a new music ensemble, Worlds Collide, which brought seven cultures together and diverse music genres including world, pop, hip hop and electronic music to the rooftops of Parramatta as part of the launch of the Sydney Sacred Music Festival 2016.
The music collaborations and projects are produced by the Cultural Arts Collective, led by Richard Petkovic and Maria Mitar, which aim to create unique culturally inspired music, events and festivals, engaging communities and artists from all cultural, social, spiritual/religious backgrounds.
