Laura Marling

Cinéma Vérité

Aug 07, 2015

She left before dawn. Laura Marling checked out of a motel in Mount Shasta, California—a locale she feared was "an axe-murderer town"—and drove alone into the woods. When the road ended, she got out and walked in the dark. The British songwriter was following the directions of a stranger she'd met the night before in a bar. The man, a hippie, had told her about a river whose spring water bestows eternal life. She just wanted to fill her tankard and be on her way. More

To Live and Die in L.A.

Mar 25, 2015

When Laura Marling lived in L.A., a part of her died. Specifically, her ego. The British songwriter relocated to America soon after completing her fourth album, 2013's  Once I Was an Eagle (which became her third album to be nominated for a Mercury Prize). She moved in search of adventure—and got more than she bargained for.  More

Laura Marling

The Master

Oct 23, 2013

Midway through "Master Hunter," the fifth song on London songwriter Laura Marling's fourth album, Once I Was an Eagle, she steals a lyric from Bob Dylan. Calling out a man who seems to want her for self-serving reasons, Marling sings, with a confident yet passive-aggressive viciousness: "It ain't me, babe. No, no, no, it ain't me, babe."  More

As a songwriter, Laura Marling has always gone toe-to-toe with her womanhood and its role in her relationships. Her latest effort, Once I Was An Eagle, sees her address this from two distinct aspectsfirst as a woman fractured and broken, later, with a confidence and conviction rebuilt.

Laura Marling has never sounded her age. Wise beyond her years? Nah, most of the time she sounds wise beyond anyone's years. Having left school at 16 to pursue music, she was a veteran long before her 2008 debut, Alas, I Cannot Swim. More

Laura Marling at Largo at the Coronet, Los Angeles, CA, February 4, 2010

Feb 17, 2010

At 20, Laura Marling possesses more grace and professional polish than I, at my decidedly more than 20 years, will ever have. However, with work that speaks for itself, shining amidst the London-based nu-folk scene that includes Noah and the Whale and Mumford & Sons, and hinting at a record collection filled with 1960s troubadours, age is a non-factor. Even if a post-gig drink during her recent North American Tour was out of the question. More

Two extraneous details threatened to ruin the mood on this particular night at World Café Live in Philadelphia. More
