Laura Marling

by Kara Manning

An astonishing singer-songwriter and guitarist, Laura Marling pens cathartic, conversational songs that deftly shift between ferocity and fragility. Just 24 years old, she's already released four critically-acclaimed albums, three of which have been nominated for the Mercury Prize. She won the Brit Award in 2011 as Best Female Solo Artist and was nominated two other times for that honor. Laura Marling will bring her beautifully etched songs to Holiday Cheer for FUV with Conor Oberst and Friends at the Beacon Theatre on December 8, joining Natalie Merchant, The Lone Bellow, The Felice Brothers and Jonathan Wilson.

Beck Eyes A Starry Song Reader Collection

by Kara Manning

Although Beck unconventionally released his Song Reader album in 2012 as sheet music, the collection of tunes will finally receive a recorded release on July 29 via Capitol Records. The all-star cadre of collaborators warbling Beck songs includes Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Jeff Tweedy, Laura Marling, Jason Isbell, Norah Jones, Swamp Dogg, Jack Black and others. Beck will sing just one song on the album, "Heaven's Ladder."

Laura Marling - Words and Music - 2010

by Kara Manning
Two years after the release of her debut, 'Alas, I Cannot Swim,' the now twenty-year old London folk-songstress Laura Marling has released, 'I Speak Because I Can.' During a recent studio visit, Laura Marling played some songs live, and told WFUV's Kara Manning that she's been maturing quickly, both in her life, and in her sound. (5/13/10)
