With COME TO ME Maryen has recorded a true singer/songwriter’s album. Diverse and genre crossing, it is refreshingly outside the box. Inspired by the red dust and lunar landscapes of WA’s Kimberley and Pilbara regions, the album was produced and arranged by Chris Kimsey, legendary producer for the Rolling Stones, INXS, Marillion and Peter Frampton. Maryen’s original vocal, guitar and piano recordings are augmented with a live band including Jennifer Maidman (Boy George, Penguin Cafe Orchestra), Paddy Milner (Tom Jones), Evan Jenkins (Neil Cowley Trio), Karlos  Edwards (Robert Palmer, Michael Buble), Ollie Clark and Sani Bolton. 

Lyrics

Taken to the caves in Mimbi by a guardian of this land
Rubbed my scent onto a rock
Gave it to the serpent in the crystal water
So I’m recognised and I need not falter
If my intention’s right

This country Mimbi will open your heart
This country Mimbi will open your heart

Walking through the caves in Mimbi with a custodian of this land
Here are spirits all around
Passing through the limestone and the ocean fossils
Wandering through the ruins of the lost city
Moves me to the core…

This country Mimbi will open your heart
This country Mimbi will open your heart

Welcomed to the caves in Mimbi by a daughter of this land
Shedding tears for recent crimes
Brave hearts are reclaiming dreamtime stories
Busy hands reclaiming home, home in this land
My heart is opening…

This country Mimbi will open your heart
This country Mimbi will open your heart
My heart is opening…
