THE SOUND LOUNGE

Their wisdom and generosity have guided Mary in developing her own improvisational language which features in her debut album By ONe of thE night, featuring Carl Dewhurst and Simon Barker. The launch promises a display of no holds barred improvisation as the trio creates dream-like soundscapes as a platform for Rapp’s visceral and emotive vocals.
