|Grace Emily Hotel|
After a national tour to launch her new album ‘Love Like Planets’, Mary will be returning to Adelaide for a homecoming show at the beloved Grace Emily Hotel. The tour takes Mary to Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Brisbane, Canberra and Newcastle.
Captivating vocals, catchy, offbeat guitar picking and a swig of poetry, you can see why Mary has been described as “a shining light” in the Adelaide Folk scene.
With familial ties to both Adelaide and Melbourne, Mary has spent much of the past few years travelling between the two, establishing a reputation as a compelling solo performer and innovative 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 human fragility, self-discovery and connection.
‘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 Mary’s previous releases have been predominantly acoustic, the new album also features an impressive four-piece studio band from Portland, Oregon. Band mates include Cory Gray (keys, trumpet; has played for Darren Hanlon, The Dandy Warhols, Decemberists, Mirah), Daniel Hindman (guitar; co-creator of the band Pure Bathing Culture), Brian Wright (drums; Pure Bathing Culture) and Zachary Tillman (bass; Pearly Gate Music, regularly plays for Fleet Foxes).
