285 Days is the new album by Mara Simpson featuring Poppy Ackroyd, Ben Daniel and Chris Boot (Lucy Rose) and Jools Owen (Bears Den). Funded by Arts Council England. Mara’s 2018 band tour features community choirs (participants of Voices Now Roundhouse and BBC Music Day).
Simpson’s influences come from a veritable melting pot of acoustic genres, the result is a perfectly balanced blend of folk, blues, and Americana.
Line of Best Fit
Soulful, sincere, warm, rich and intimate. The songwriting is stunning.
