My sister bought me tickets for my birthday to see Laura Marling in Leeds last night. This is a bit of a feat considering she normally sells out really fast; I have tried to get tickets to see her many times and failed.
Laura Marling is one of my favourite artists – she’s immensely talented, unique, smart and cool. And she was even better live. Despite filling out the O2 Academy you could have heard a pin drop throughout her entire set. Her voice was stunning and she was complimented by an incredibly talented band.
I can’t really explain more without showing you. Here’s a video of her live from Abbey Road last year:
I Was Just a Card
Don’t Ask Me Why
Alas I Cannot Swim
Pray For Me
My Winding Wheel (Ryan Adams cover)
Goodbye England (Covered in Snow)
What He Wrote
I Speak Because I Can
