ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Maiden" is the 3rd and final EP in the Maiden, Mother, Crone trilogy which explores pagan tales and images of women in a modern context.

Reviews of the trilogy EPs:

“[A] remarkable talent.. in a category all of her own. She's a force of nature" Prog Magazine (UK)

"..she’s spellbinding. Haunting, beautiful songs that proved to be mesmerising in both subject and style" Cat on the Wall (UK).

"Her Celtic sounding vocals draw you in and could capture any audience with their unique sound... simply stunning" New Zealand Musician (NZ)


The "Maiden, Mother Crone" trilogy combines pagan imagery with modern narratives on women. "The Hag", or Crone was once seen as wise, but the elderly today are often simply marginalised or overlooked entirely. The "Crone"'s invisibility however, has a plus side. She can be as political as she likes, and many of her songs are just that. The Crone is more outside the gaze of what is expected of women, compared to the other two figures, so is allowed to speak her mind. It is a voice within her voicelessness , and an identity that she herself can construct.

The Mother character wrestles with balancing societal expectation with what she herself wants from her life. She is the character society often feels completely entitled to judge, touch, and regulate. As a result she is the moral body and struggles with both external assessment and with what to do when her attempts to do what is expected of her not work out as planned.

The Maiden is an emergent character - only allowed to "be" in a context of innocence and naevity. Her battle is to become what she is, despite any negative judgements over what are considered transgressions from the archetype.
