British songwriter Mara Simpson has captivated audiences around the world with her soulful melodies, rich lyricism, unassuming charm and wicked laugh. With a style of songwriting equally as eclectic as her background, Mara delivers an old soul voice with a unique perspective, recently quoted by New Zealand Musician Magazine as ‘Soulful, sincere, warm, rich and intimate. The songwriting is stunning.’
Growing up between suburban England and East Africa, she has played stages and festivals around England, Ireland, across Europe, and over to the distant shores of New Zealand. Mara now bases herself in London and Berlin. She is set to tour Germany and Holland this spring and has London shows coming up this month at The Strongroom and Brixton’s Hootananny. Her new track Fine Lines which saw her collaborate with Berlin producers Feeling Valencia aka band Abby is now out on independent release.
