Discovery: Mabes

Over this festive period, we’ve got a chance to look back at some of the artists we got to hear this year but never share with you. Next up is British acoustic artist Mabes with her track Bigger Picture.

By Graeme Smith

Mabes combines a classic British singer-songwriter voice with a simple but atmospheric acoustic guitar riff. The story in Bigger Picture unfolds gently, a story of cynicism and growing into an adult.

Mabes started performing at fifteen and it’s clear in Bigger Picture that a raw talent is being corralled into a mature sound. Check it out below.
