2021 feels like the dawn of a new era, and for Scottish born Australian Singer-Songwriter, Maryen Cairns, now based in Guernsey in The Channel Islands, the music technology she has been involved in for so long has truely proved its use - a remote collaboration with producer Chris Kimsey in his home studio has led to her new singles The Haunted Lane (a tale inspired by local Guernsey folklore) and Spirit (recorded entirely by herself with piano, acoustic guitar & strings).
Maryen has worked for many years on her craft, which has taken her both across Australia and around the world. She was based in London for a decade playing shows both solo and with her band, including supports for FISH, The Troggs, Energy Orchard, UFO and Black 47.
In 2017 Maryen worked with children in remote communities, helping them write their own stories into song, and wrote a show, Femina Australis, telling the stories of 12 Australian women, presenting it at the Somerset Celebration of Literature and taking it on the road with her family across 18,000 km.
