Storytelling is an integral part of life for Bridgetown singer-songwriter Mary Myfanwy Evans, who launched her third album, ‘The Deepest’, to an appreciative audience at The Cidery last Friday night. Whether she is writing short stories, poetry or songs, Mary endeavours to paint pictures with words, evoking emotion and transporting the reader or listener to another realm. "I find my inspiration in all manner of things such as my surroundings, a snatch of conversation, a picture or poems,” Mary said. “The song that gave my new album its title had its roots in Dylan Thomas' poem 'In Country Sleep', which I came across years ago when reading Roald Dahl's 'Matilda', and it stayed with me." Known for her distinctive deep, melodic voice, Mary regularly entertains crowds throughout the South West with her poetic music spiced with blues, jazz, soul, country and folk. The twelve original songs, three of which Mary wrote with her author mother Sarah Evans, cover a range of subject matter from fairy tale-driven inspiration to the nuances of relationships. Keeping it in the family, Mary's artist-illustrator brother Gabriel designed the distinctive album cover. Songwriting isn't the talented artists only forte, with her award winning crime story, ‘Stage Fright’, soon to be published by Melbourne publisher Clan Destine Press.
