In anticipation of the new album release, Come To Me, early 2019, Australian Folk Rock artist Maryen Cairns, presents a sampler EP featuring highlights from her 26 year career starting with the 1992 album "The Pictures Within" through to the brand new single, "The Devil's Fly".
Musicians and writers like Maryen Cairns continue to evolve creatively after their twenties have passed, seeking a deeper exploration into their psyche. Her maturity has enabled her to re-emerge with diversity, fearlessly exploring genres and textures, writing and performing from her authentic heart and real life experience.
Although to the general public Maryen is a new face, she has worked for many years on her craft, which has taken her both across Australia and around the world. Based in London for a decade working with world class musicians, raising a family on an off-the-grid mountaintop in South East Queensland, working with children in remote communities in Western Australia helping them write their own stories into song, writing a show telling the stories of Australian women and taking it on the road with her own family in a caravan covering 18,000 km, and all the time writing writing writing, with a fascination for both the imagined, the deep spiritual world and very real history (which often proves stranger than fiction), Maryen has continued to develop as a singer and songwriter, as evidenced in her new album COME TO ME.
