Singer -songwriter Mary Fahl, former lead singer of October Project, has written the theme song for the audiobook version of the new novel “The Wolves of Midwinter” by author Anne Rice.

With the help of the composer and producer John Lissauer, who has worked with heavyweights such as Leonard Cohen and Bette Midler, “Exiles (The Wolves of Midwinter)” was born.

Mary Fahl is best known as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s folk-rock/adult alternative group October Project. As a solo artist, her musical inspirations have grown to include classical, folk, medieval and world music.  Sharing a mutual love for music, longtime fan Anne Rice mentions both Fahl and an October Project song, “Take Me as I Am,” in her new novel, “The Wolves of Midwinter.” Rice noted that she referenced “Take Me as I Am” because “I was hearing that song in my head, and Mary Fahl singing it, as I wrote the scene.”  Rice continued; “I am so honored and thrilled that Mary was inspired to write “Exiles” as a result. It’s haunting and beautiful and exactly conveys the mood of the novel.”

Her expressive, transcendent voice has been called “supernatural” by Anne Rice, and has garnered Fahl praise from her loyal fan base and critics alike. The Boston Globe wrote that Mary had “a voice for the gods,” Variety said she had “a powerful, beautifully proportioned contralto,” and “soul-permeating” vocals came from a review in the Portland Press.
