Marry Waterson and Emily Barker
Supported by Pete Dilley

English folk royalty meets Australian soul in this new collaboration between Marry Waterson and Emily Barker. After meeting at a songwriter's retreat, they have released an album of fly-on-the-wall observations of the contradictions and disconnections of modern life, 'A Window To Other Ways'. No strangers to collaboration, Waterson and Barker discovered an immediate kinship when they started writing together. The intriguing combination of Waterson’s poetic lyrics and Barker’s eclectic musicality has been shaped in the studio by musical polymath Adem Ilhan, with recording contributions from two of Barker’s live band: Lukas Drinkwater (bass and guitar) and Rob Pemberton (drums). Serendipity worked her magic in bringing Waterson, Barker and Adem together. The resulting collection of songs pushes the boundaries of Barker and Waterson’s renowned roots styles, venturing into a diverse union of genres – contemporary folk, country and soul nestles comfortably alongside lilting indie and playful blues.
