Uniquely captivating band Lady Maisery return with their first studio album in six years. The combined vocal and multi-instrumental talents of Hazel Askew, Hannah James and Rowan Rheingans (individually three of the most accomplished and adventurous artists in modern folk) transmute to form a unified voice, carrying stories of sisterhood, human struggle, the joy of living and the vitality of music.
Their new album, Tender – due for release this November – comprises original songs written by Lady Maisery, as well as contemplative and personal interpretations of work by Björk,
Tracy Chapman and the late Lal Waterson. An arresting record that explores the power in vulnerability and the strength in kindness, these are songs which acknowledge our collective wounds while striving forward with a visceral hope for the future. Frequent festival headliners, Lady Maisery have for over a decade enraptured audiences throughout the UK and Europe. Their return to the live stage has been eagerly awaited.
“Exquisite, thrilling” – The Guardian
“Ambitious and beautiful” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
“Lady Maisery are women with ideas, purpose and urgency…. powerful, enthralling work”
