The warm twang of Laura Marling’s vocal stylings have been a part of the British folk revival since she was eighteen when her debut album, Alas I Cannot Swim, frequented airwaves. In her latest album, Once I Was an Eagle, Marling presents a mature, ambitious sound that is intimate and refined. Accompanied by swift finger-picking, a cello, and well-placed drums and piano, Once I Was an Eagle stands out as a sweet, reflective piece of music. Laura Marling finds a way to face complex issues with wit and self-aware lyricism.
Laura Marling recently joined us in Studio 1A for an amazing live performance, which you can hear below! Don’t worry if you missed out – you’ll have another chance to catch Laura playing this evening at Central Presbyterian Church!
