MARLING'S MUSICAL STYLE
Introduced to folk music at an early age by her music producing father, she had learned to play the guitar in early childhood, which shaped her musical style. Marling was only 16 years old when she emerged on the British indie scene in 2007 thanks to a handful of infectious singles made available on her MySpace profile. Blessed with a husky voice, an acoustic guitar, and a gift for building quirky, hooky folk songs, Marling is considered one of the co-founders of the "nu-folk" genre, and has captured the attention of American fans since moving to Los Angeles.
