Growing up with a blues guitarist father, music was always on the cards for Mary Eskine AKA Me For Queen. A born storyteller, Mary grew up by the sea in an old house in rural Fife, Scotland, where she began songwriting at the age of 13.
Last years single ‘Jessica’ cemented Mary as one of the UK’s most exciting new singer-songwriters. The track picked up traction after landing on one of Spotify UK’s most engaged playlists “The Most Beautiful Songs in The World”. From there the track was picked up by a number of online tastemakers, as well as 6Music, BBC Scotland and BBC Wales. Not one to neglect her live game, last year also included sold-out shows at London’s Paper Dress Vintage and the Sound Lounge. She started 2018 with a Celtic Connections show supporting Chris Wood and is set to tour Germany in May, before a UK tour in September.
Summer 2018 sees the songwriter showcase her debut solo album “Loose End” and Mary was keen to expand on her previously piano-led sound, exploring a more varied sonic landscape with richer arrangements and instrumentation.
“This album is the product of me moving away from London for a spell to clear my head and see what’s left at the end! I’m immensely proud of these songs and of our little team that came together to create the album in the studio.” – Me For Queen
