Laura Marling

The (Lady in the) Band:  Laura Marling

What’s the story? At the ripe old age of 23, the old soul that is Laura Marling has the grace of a medieval Eowyn warrior princess, channelling the spirits and sounds of centuries of heartbreak. The already prolific  singer-songwriter has released 4 albums, and is heralded as the English Rose of UK folk.

Sounds Like:  Joni Mitchell singing along to Led Zeppelin III while making rainy day tea

The gateway song: There are two sides to Miss Marling. The pensive wounded robin:

“Blues Run The Game”

And the increasingly prevalent predatory bird of prey:

“Master Hunter”

Other songs:   

“Rambling Man”

 “Devil’s Spoke”

“Where Can I Go?”

Listen to her new album ‘Once I Was An Eagle’ for a limited time here! Especially the suite of the first 5 songs. Special.
