Mary Webb

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.

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 an innovative 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 human fragility, self-discovery and connection.

Mary’s new album ‘Love Like Planets’ was recorded at Snowghost Studios in Montana, USA with studio owner and engineer 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. 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).

“This was no ordinary voice. No banal lyrics. The melody was pure and unassuming, natural and deeply communicative.”

“an original musical prodigy”

they bring an airy, graceful gentility to the folk gathering that is particularly, stunningly beautiful. It's like looking at the world through lace curtains; Or just stopping to notice the flowers.”
