MARY ELAINE JENKINS ,FRIDAY 10TH JULY 2020

 

Whether it comes from the hot buzz in the air or the generations that have called it home, the South has a sound and history that runs deeper that most anywhere in America.

Singer songwriter Mary Elaine Jenkins is a much a part of this lineage as anyone, being a thirteenth generation South Carolinian.  In other words, her family has inhabited a very distinct sliver of the US for a long, long time and somewhere along the line a performative streak appeared.

Mary Elaine’s maternal grandmother was a classically trained soprano, whilst her paternal grandmother was an actress.  With no shortage of matriarchal and musical inspiration, she has taken up the torch and embarked on her own musical journey that combines the raw grit of her home State with modern influences.

Mary Elaine Jenkins music sounds like a premonition, from slow and smoky to raucous and playful.  Because it is so distinctly of a place, her music acts as an immediate window into her personal journey, encompassing blues, soul and folk. 

She carries herself like she had never left the humidity of the south but she did, first to Washington DC, then Spain before landing in Brooklyn, New York in 2013.  She played in venues across the city and surrounded herself with a creative network that included producer Thom Beemer, who produced her debut album ‘Hold Still’ that was released in September 2018. 

The album is visceral, intimate and immediate and a joy, as her Mary Elaine’s live performances.  Every song on the album has a tale to tell.

This is Mary’s first ever full UK Tour.  She came over in 2019 to play a series of Festival and impressed every audience she played to.

Support comes from Yorkshire based song writer GREGORY S DAVIES, who will be accompanied by Jack Amblin on drums and Sam Jackson on bass.  Greg has released three albums, the first two combined upbeat blues with folk and country.  His latest album ‘Pathfinder’ sees him move into a heavier sound rooted in rock.  It pushes themes of hope and unity against the backdrop of an uncertain world.
