Mary Broadbent’s path into the music industry started much like it does for most of us: on stage, and in a band. After moving around for much of her childhood, Mary finally ended up attending Emerson University in Boston. After graduation she followed a few classmates to the West Coast where her real education as a live touring professional would ultimately begin.

Tour Manager, Stage Manager, Backline Tech, Production Manager. These are just a few of the many hats Mary has already worn for many artists including Chris Isaak, The Staves, The Mowglis, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Fitz and the Tantrums.

Mary recently wrapped-up another successful run with Girl School LA can currently be found on tour with Betty Who.
