Mardi Lumsden is an alt-folk singer-songwriter from Brisbane, Australia.
Her upcoming debut album, Hiatus, was recorded by husband Andrew Pennay in their home (a converted church). In fact, her last EP, Wherever you go, there you are' was also recorded in a converted church. It might be her thing.
Mardi has played everywhere from Brisbane to Bethlehem. Her music captures the simplicity and intricacies of human nature.
The song "Pieces of the Story" was featured on Australian TV shows including Channel 7’s Winners and Losers and the ABC’s Dance Academy. The film clip for the song has had over 96,000 views on YouTube. Other songs have been featured in ABC’s Time of Our Lives.
These songs were on Mardi Lumsden & the Rising Seas' second EP, Wherever you go, there you are, recorded with ARIA-award winning producer Magoo at his Applewood studio (the first converted church) west of Brisbane.
The EP’s closing track, Classified (WVTM), won the 2010 Q Song award in the Folk/Ballad section and was a finalist for the 2010 Song of the Year.
The Wherever you go, there you are EP received rave reviews from all over the country.
“A bewitching collection of taut alt-folk anthems.” The Courier Mail (Matt Connors 2-3/10/10)
“Sparkling alt-folk gems.” The Age EG (Rohan Trollope 13/8/2010)
“One of our favourite titles of the year: Wherever you go, there you are. The EP is mighty fine too, reminding Howzat! of Aimee Mann, which is a beautiful thing.”
Impress (Jeff Jenkins 11/8/2010)
