Alternative Folk artist Mara Simpson announces her new album, In This Place, and shares a video for its title-track. The album will be the first to be released on Downfield Records, a non-profit imprint set up by Mara. The label’s mission is for musicians to be paid fairly and release records through a process that’s beneficial for all involved.
“This is a song about the rawest of loves,” Mara explains. “And the fact that however much we love someone, they are never ours, and the beauty in that,” she continues. It’s ironically something that Mara learned from her mother. “When I left home to travel around the world and was so worried about breaking my Mum’s heart,” says Mara. “I just remember her saying that your children are never yours to keep,” she concludes.
