Maree Lawn is creating a 4 track ‘homecoming’ EP and is seeking funding for the period of February 2022, to support the creation process, cost of photo shoot and design for the album cover and costs of mixing/mastering of the works.
The album will be a culmination of 5 years in Portugal, plus a 6 month tour around New Zealand, a returning home after many years away. An insight into the internal life and trip around her home country.

After finishing a jazz degree in Wellington, Feilding born Shannon Lawn took off on an epic adventure around the world, a quest that has so far lasted over 9 years.
She has discovered worlds within worlds of sound, across musical traditions such as Cambodian folk music, bulgarian vocal folk, experimental electronic music production, chanting, jazz, experimental pop, hiphop, spoken word poetry, appalachian folk and more and has experienced sound with artists such as Bob Rakalam Moses, Georgia-Anne Muldrow, Mined Music, Inquérito, :Papercutz and more.
Her solo project, Maree Lawn, is an autobiographical sound exploration into her inner world, reminiscent of various music’s such as triphop, neo soul, jazz, dark experimental electrónica, coloured by her vocal expression which ranges from sweet and delicate to dark and ferocious.
