Music with Marty Duda

From Nine To Noon, 11:20 am on 14 August 2013

English singer-songwriter Laura Marling released her first album while still a teenager. Endowed with a husky voice and a gift for building quirky, hooky folk songs (characteristics that found her compared to artists like Lily Allen, Regina Spektor, and Martha Wainwright), Marling quickly made a name for herself throughout England thanks to a heavy touring schedule and some high-profile gigs. Her second album I Speak Because I Can was nominated for the Mercury Prize and her third album A Creature I Don't Know found further critical acclaim. In 2012 Marling moved to California and has collaborated with producer Ethan Johns on Once I Was An Eagle, which was released a few weeks ago.
