Seattle-based singer-songwriter Mary Lambert –you know her and we will tell you how in a second-- has signed to Capitol Records. She is currently in the studio with producer Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos).
Lambert will release her debut EP for the label on December 17.
Lambert has earned widespread attention for writing and singing the hook on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' marriage-equality anthem "Same Love" and performing it with them on the MTV Video Music Awards. The song draws on her experiences as a lesbian growing up in a tumultuous, Christian household.
In July, Lambert released "She Keeps Me Warm, an extension of "Same Love" that Lambert calls "the other side of the story." The accompanying video sets the song to a visual of the romantic love and devotion experienced in a same-sex partnership. "The video is about love and it's about visibility," Lambert says. "I could be wrong, but I've never seen a relationship like mine accurately portrayed in a music video."

Congrats to Mary on her new label digs.
