    Don't Know Much - Mara Simpson remix
Mara Simpson is a British musician and story-teller, currently based in Brighton. Through her songs and collaborations with artists (Poppy Ackroyd, Fiddes Smith, Jools Owen), visual artist (Becky Lu, Gudrun Olsen) and local communities, she draws on the sublime and the ridiculous from our everyday.
“Soulful, sincere, warm, rich and intimate. The songwriting is stunning.”
- New Zealand Musician Magazine
“Simpson’s influences come from a veritable melting pot of acoustic genres, the result is a perfectly balanced blend of folk, blues, and Americana”
- Line of Best Fit
Of her 2018 choir tour
“Mara Simpson is an incredible singer, songwriter and artist. Seeing her perform recently at St John’s Bethnal Green with the community choir and seeing what she is giving to each of the communities she performs with was a truly humbling experience. Mara is a beautiful performer, and this format is an original, well-thought out initiative to engage local communities across the UK.”
- Lucie Watson, music reviewer and head of music at Platoon
