Some of you met Mara Hruby via an artist spotlight we did back in June, while others probably still are needing to get their life together and get put on. Here’s another chance.

The latest from this Oakland based jazzy folky songstress is her video for her cover of Van Hunt’s “Character.”

The video is a warm dreamy documentation of Mara getting ready for an afternoon of strumming and singing with beautiful attention to all the pretty visual details that make up miss Hruby’s delicate beauty. At the end of the video, find a snippet of “The Love Below,” an original tune to be feature on Mara’s upcoming album.

So again, if you missed Mara’s EP of covers, From Her Eyes, you might want to catch her doing her paying homage to some of the greats of our time – The Roots, Andre 3000, D’Angelo, Van Hunt, Bob Marley, and Jamiroquai.

Mara Hruby may be new to most, but in the Bay Area this talent is already thriving, gracing the famed Yoshi’s in her first year of performing. Her vocals are haunting; folky, jazzy, soulful – she truly sounds like a dream. Her first project is called, From Her Eyes, where she remakes popular songs by men (November 2010). Recently, she put out her video for Mos Def’s “The Panties;” a whimsical and dream-like feel is complemented by blue tones and soft-focus visuals – add in the stunning Mara and it’s quite a breathtaking sight. The rest of the EP includes covers from The Roots, Andre 3000, D’Angelo, Van Hunt, Bob Marley, and Jamiroquai. Take a listen to that and download below! This lady is a real treat.
