About Mary Lattimore

MARY LATTIMORE is a harpist and composer living in Los Angeles. She experiments with her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand harp and effects. Her solo debut, The Withdrawing Room, was released in 2013 on Desire Path Recordings. Lattimore also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew and Fursaxa. Her debut solo record for Ghostly International, ‘At The Dam’, was recorded during stops along a road trip across America and released in March 2016. The next year, she compiled sounds from her past life in Philadelphia for a cassette tape titled ‘Collected Pieces’. Released in May 2018 to acclaim from the likes of NPR, Pitchfork, and The New Yorker Lattimore’s next album ‘Hundreds of Days’ presented an expression of mystified gratitude for the natural world.

‘Goodbye, Hotel Arkada’ (Ghostly International), Lattimore’s new LP, speaks not just for its beloved namesake – a hotel in Croatia facing renovation – but for a universal loss that is shared. Six sprawling pieces shaped by change; nothing will ever be the same, and here, the artist, evolving in synthesis, celebrates and mourns the tragedy and beauty of the ephemeral, all that is lived and lost to time. Documented and edited in uncharacteristically measured sessions over the course of two years, the material remains rooted in improvisation while glistening as the most refined and robust in Lattimore’s decade-long catalogue. It finds her communing with friends, contemporaries, and long time influences, in full stride yet slowing down to nurture songs in new ways. The cast includes Lol Tolhurst (The Cure), Meg Baird, Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Roy Montgomery, Samara Lubelski, and Walt McClements.

LUCE MAWDSLEY (they/them) is an autistic non-binary composer and guitarist based in Liverpool with a practice rooted in progressive experimentation. Drawing from a range of poetic art forms, their work uses personal experience of neurodivergence, mental health disorders and queerness as a ligature from which to generate subversive explorations of gender, sexuality, place and identity formation. ‘Northwest & Nebulous’ (out this March on Pure O Records) is a lush and accomplished album suffused with radiant and fluid possibilities. A world-building album pulling from folk, Americana and soundtrack influences, it fuses their romantic and exploratory energies and signals the beginning of a new journey for composer, with an open invitation for listeners to come along for the ride. Luce Mawdsley will be accompanied by fellow North Liverpool musicians Nicholas Branton and Luci Mercer for this performance.
