This has landed her on the month's cover star on Oxford music magazine Nightshift as she sets to release her new album, The Calm & The Storm.

The launch of her new album will coincide with n a performance at The Bullingdon tomorrow evening (April 7).

Mavies has performed at venues such as The O2 Academy, The Cellar and The Jericho Tavern as well as shows such as BBC Radio Oxford and BBC Introducing Oxford.

BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris said he “loves what she’s doing” whilst Tom Robinson said she is “one of my favourites!”.

Mavies said: "We've been recording the album for over a year, but spent years before, writing these songs, playing them live to different audiences and experiencing that connection with the crowd.

“I hope that people can feel that when they listen to it, and get a little magic out of it".

Oxfordshire Music Scene Magazine said: “The most impressive debut album I’ve heard in a long time. If we have a scoring system it’d get 10/10. Go buy it. Go watch her live.”

On the album, she is joined by her band which consists of her brothers Adrian and Chris who both play the guitar.

The album was recorded at Stevensonics studio in Oxfordshire.

She is due to perform at a number of festivals this summer including Witney Music Festival, Music at The Crossroads and Park Fair.
