Laura Marling Headed to U.S.


Fee-Fie-Foe-Fum, we smell
the blood of an Englishwoman…

By Blurt Staff


Mercury Music Prize nominee Laura Marling — 18-year old English singer/songwriter who BLURT
recently profiled (see “Darling Marling,” HERE) — just announced her first
official American tour, which she is inexplicably calling the “Fee Fie Foe Fum”


To pre-promote
her debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim Marling
played New York City, Los Angeles and Austin earlier this year but these
upcoming shows mark her first coast-to-coast jaunt. She’ll be joined by a
co-headliner, Lost Highway recording artist Johnny Flynn, a fellow Englishman whose album Tickle Me Pink is
out now on Lost Highway. UK
folksters Mumford & Sons are
opening all below tour dates.
Laura Marling wrote and recorded
her debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim at the age of 17 and has since watched it snowball into one of the most
critically acclaimed British albums of the year and was recently nominated for the
2008 Mercury Music Prize. Released
in the UK in February, it’ll
be made available on CD in the US
from August 19th on Astralwerks
Records. The album was made available from digital retailers last month.  


Watch for the BLURT album review soon too.
