Laura Marling Plays Webster Hall Tomorrow Night

September 27th, 2011

For singer-songwriter Laura Marling, all took it was some precocious talent—and the Internet—to get out the word. She was only 16 when her folky singles, featured on MySpace, drew the attention of London’s indie-music scene. As the youngest daughter of a music teacher, she’d begun playing guitar and composing songs at a young age. But despite her youth, Marling’s voice and songwriting abilities couldn’t be overlooked. Her first two albums, Alas, I Cannot Swim and I Speak Because I Can, were nominated for prestigious Mercury Prizes, and now, at the ripe age of 21, she’s back with a just-released third disc, A Creature I Don’t Know, which brings Marling (above, playing “I Speak Because I Can”) to Webster Hall tomorrow night.
