With familial ties to both Adelaide and Melbourne, Mary has spent much of the past few years travelling between the two, and has built up a solid reputation in these scenes as both performer and songwriter. A strong background in classical and choral music has her in good stead, though her music now also suggests Jazz and Folk have been powerful influences. Mary’s songs are thoughtful yet frank, exploring relationships between people and their lovers, friends, family, and themselves, and what it is to be human.
Mary’s latest album, “Love Like Planets”, is a 12 track journey through differing musical styles recorded to 24 track analogue tape. With influences from modern indie artists, folk artists, 60s 70s psychedelia, jazz, and electronica Love Like Planets is a unique exploration of varying musical styles and emotions. Featuring a wide range of instruments, and styles, Love Like Planets takes the listener on a journey through all musical emotions and feelings – it’s truly spectacular masterpiece.
“This was no ordinary voice. No banal lyrics. The melody was pure and unassuming, natural and deeply communicative.”
“an original musical prodigy”
