Mary Ocher was born in Moscow (Russia, former USSR) in 1986 and grew up in Tel Aviv (Israel). She moved to Berlin at the age of 20 and has been playing more or less everywhere in and out of town ever since; both solo and with Mary and The Baby Cheeses.
A true artist whose creativity spans beyond music to filmmaking and drawings, Mary's art reflects her eccentric personality. Her recent album, "War Songs" (2011), is a concept album about what Mary might ironically regard as her favorite subject – war – as well as social status, persecution and hints of nationalism and sexual abuse.
She has recently started working on new songs with garage soul icon, producer King Khan, who described her music as "a mix of Kate Bush, Kim Fowley and Buffy Sainte-Marie". Her style includes various influences, ranging from protest folk songs to theatrical punk, Lo-fi, Brian Eno like experimental music and even psychedelic pop.
