JPR Live Session: Laura Marling

Laura Marling At Home.jpg

Laura Marling's latest release (her 7th) called Song For Our Daughter is a collection of songs and stories she describes as a letter to her younger self. Well-established in the contemporary music scene via her highly touted ouvre, and now in to her second decade of music-making, Marling's lyrics are now more intimate and vulnerable than ever, colored as they are by the experiences she's had along the way. Written at home, Marling had more time to consider whether each tune on the album was truly worth of inclusion.

Marling started out as a guitarist, and early on found herself connected to the 'new-folk' movement that included Mumford & Sons and Noah & The Whale. She wasn't (and still isn't) comfortable with that label, and would much prefer to just be considered 'alternative' or simply 'songwriter.'

She joined us from her home studio in northeast London for some brilliant performances, and a chat about how she's finding life in the midst of a pandemic.
