Mary Epworth

Asked last year about her “lyrical inspiration” by god is in the tv, Mary Etowrth replied: “I don’t know if I’m massively inspired by anything. The songs that I’m happiest with tend to just come to me! I’m hugely into nature and wildlife, and landscapes — I think that comes through. It’s one of those things that I try not to think about too much — you know when bad lyrics are kind of conceived? I think if you labour it too much they get really bad.” On her own website, the composer of Black Doe is described thus: “Psych soul Chanteuse Mary Epworth’s music calls to mind the lushness of Holland era Beach Boys, the plugged in folk of Fairport Convention and the heavy fuzz of Flower Travellin’ Band.”
