Sunday Best has signed Mary Epworth and will now release her second album later this year. Epworth is set to debut some of the new songs that will appear on that record during Sunday Best’s showcase at SXSW in Austin next month.
Confirming the deal, the overseer of all things Sunday Best and Bestival, Rob da Bank, said: “We are so THRILLED we’re signing Mary to Sunday Best. She is such versatile songwriter and sings like an angel. You never quite know what she’s gonna do next too, dipping into so many styles. Please sink your ears into her magic!”
Meanwhile the label’s Sarah Bolshi added: “Indeed, we are very excited to be working with Mary, and look forward to having her perform new music at our first official SXSW showcase in March”
Epworth herself was also on hand with both some quotage and a little more information about the deal – mainly that Sunday Best’s pals at [PIAS] Co-operative will also be involved – telling us all that: “I’m very excited to be joining Sarah and Rob and the rest of the Sunday Best family, and look forward to releasing my new music further afield with the help of the extended PIAS/Co-op team”.
