Loose End - Me For Queen
Our LCM featured artist today is the lovely and talented Portugal based Mary Erskine, the wonderful Me For Queen. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is Mary's brand new single and title track 'Loose End' taken from Mary's new album set for release in the autumn via Seahorse Music.
Mary will be on a UK tour in September/October to support the album's release, with a London date at 1000 Island on the 3rd October
Mary 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.
