Mary Hampton has already gained fantastic exposure in the UK Press and on UK specialist radio. She has opened for American cult artist Baby Dee on her UK tour and has recorded with Eliza Carthy on Eliza’s ‘Rough Music’ and with Stereolab offshoot, Imitation Electric Piano on their last record. Mary’s first solo album is a distillation of her musical influences (which includes Anne Briggs, Bob Dylan, Bach, traditional fiddle music, and British bird song). The subjects Mary covers are timeless and the language she uses is raw and poetic; the stories themselves frequently charged with Gothic drama and mystery. The album contains 10 original songs, which focus in various ways on our uncomfortable relationship with the familiar.
