Born in Berkshire, England to a musical family, Laura had her destiny set out for her from a very early age. The recording studio her father ran accompanied by the guitar lessons put young Laura in a position that would ultimately shape her sound and place in folk singer-songwriter music. Though very talented, she often felt out of place explaining it as “a bit of blessing and a curse because I couldn’t slot myself into the age appropriate genre”
Laura started her professional career at the age of 16 as apart of the indie-folk band Noah and the Whale, appearing as a back up vocalist on their debut album “Peaceful, the World Lays me Down.” Marling released “Alas, I Cannot Swim”, “I Speak Because I Can,” and “Once I Was an Eagle”. All of these albums were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2008, 2010, and 2013. She has also won the Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist in 2011.
On March 2, 2017 Laura Marling brings her bright guitar and soothingly full voice of emotion to the Mayan Theater here in Los Angeles to celebrate the release of her new album “Semper Femina” that will be released on March 10th.
