With the  release of her debut album Dream Life, Mary Epworth has emerged as one of the UK’s most exciting talents.  The album’s success in blending 1960s West Coast psychedelia with gospel and dream pop has gained Mary widespread radio exposure as well as glowing reviews.
With her full band, Mary has played a sold-out headline show at the Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room and a string of festivals including Bestival and main stages at Hop Farm and Standon Calling.

BBC 6 Music, Radio 1, Radio 2 and XFM are among those to play tracks from Dream Life, with 6 Music awarding it Album of the Day, and singles Black Doe and Long Gone being playlisted at 6 Music and gaining Single of the Week accolades on both Shaun Keaveny’s 6 Music show and XFM X-Posure.  Further 6 Music coverage has included live sessions for Lauren Laverne and Cerys Matthews and an interview with Radcliffe and Maconie.
