Mara Duke is a singer, songwriter, performer, occasional guitar player and wannabe producer. She grew up learning classical singing but decided a classical career would not suit her. Instead, she wanted a versatile voice that could satiate her love of a number of music styles. On tracks she sings pop, but on live acoustic guitar she sings indie folky tunes. Her main musical foray over the past two years has been her pop project MARA DUKE which she works on collaboratively with producers Zak Pap and Helena B.

In 2016, Mara debuted ‘Like We Do’ and ‘Interstellar’ on iTunes and Spotify, both earning a semi-finalist spot in the International Songwriting Competition.

In 2017, she switched up her sound for a darker shade of pop and released ‘Who is this Girl’ through The A&R Department, with accompanying visuals. The track was well received, peaking at #15 on the Triple J Unearthed Charts.

In 2018, Mara has been writing and continuing to work hard in the studio with her collaborators to continue to push the envelope and keep developing their unique brand of pop.
