Slow Train - Me For Queen
We have known our excellent LCM featured band for quite a while now and attended their last wonderful 'cycling themed' album launch at the Stratford Velodrome. London based Me for Queen are releasing a new EP entitled 'Who I Am And What I'm For' in November. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is the new great first single 'Slow Train'. We really like both Mary's cooking skills and the video to this one. #bakeoff https://youtu.be/-6aBj9bPrm8
Me for Queen aka Mary Erskine is inspired by people and their stories. Growing up feral in rural Fife/Scotland in a big old house near the sea, she started writing songs when she was 13, around the same time that she started dressing herself. At this time music was her method of making her mark against four older siblings, and getting out of the washing up.
Years of classical training together with a Blues guitarist for a father make for an interesting mix of Soul and Folk. Me For Queen’s piano-based songs draw obvious comparisons to Regina Spektor and Carol King but manage to fuse hints of Kate Bush and Laura J Martin.
Me For Queen are supporting Bryde at the Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton on 13th October. If you are going I'll see you there :)
