“…an original music prodigy.” -Stereonet 2017
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. Drawing on a vast array of musical influences, Mary’s songs are thoughtful yet frank, exploring human fragility, self-discovery and connection.
Her second studio album ‘Love Like Planets’ was recorded in January 2017 at Snow Ghost Studies in Montana, USA. While her previous releases have been predominantly acoustic, the new album also features an impressive four-piece studio band form Portland. Band mates include Cory Gray (keys, trumpet; appears on records by Decemberists, Grails, Nocturnal Habits, Norfolk & Western, The Dodos, Hosannas, 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, Fleet Foxes). The full album will be released in February 2018, with CD, Vinyl and hi-res download available.
