KEXP Exclusive Interview: Mary Lambert

Grammy-nominated singer Mary Lambert has been doing things for herself lately. And, she says, it feels exhilarating. But between performances and business moves – like signing her own distribution deal and releasing her latest EP, Bold, in May – she’s been playing a lot of The Sims computer game, creating characters based on her friends (like The Black Tones’ Eva Walker, featured drummer in Lambert’s latest video). The former Seattle-area resident, who now spends much of her time in Massachusetts, recently announced a slew of tour dates, including a show Sunday, October 29th at the Crocodile Café in Seattle. “It’s happening,” says Lambert, “I’m so excited! I haven’t toured for 2-3 years.” We had a chance to catch up with the singer to talk to her about her new EP, a new LP she’s working on, the responsibility she feels toward fans and much more.
