Captivating vocals, catchy, offbeat guitar picking and a swig of poetry, you can see why Mary Webb has been described as “a shining light” in the Adelaide Folk scene. She is an engaging solo performer, best experienced up close and personal. Mary’s songs are thoughtful yet frank, exploring human fragility, self-discovery and connection.
Mary will be taking her latest album ‘Love Like Planets’ on the road through March and April with shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra and Newcastle.
Love Like Planets was recorded in Montana, USA with Brett Allen (Death Cab For Cutie, Swell Season, Matmos, Wayne Hotvitz, Justin Townes Earl), and local South Australian producer Mike Kirkham. While her previous releases have been predominantly acoustic, the new album also features an impressive four-piece studio band from Portland, Oregon, and utilises range of analogue synthesisers, all recorded live to 2-inch tape.
“…an original music prodigy.” –Stereonet
“Mary Webb clearly possesses an innate talent for music.” –Music SA
