If you’ve never listened to Laura Marling, stop reading this and go listen to her cover of Jackson C. Frank’s “Blues Run the Game.” Are you done? Great. Now, tell me how old you think the owner of this lovely, timeless voice might be. If you guess anything more than 23 years old, you’re sadly mistaken. The British singer just completed her fourth album, entitled Once I Was An Eagle and due to hit record shops on May 28. If you don’t believe me, go see her for yourself.

Laura Marling has long been considered wise beyond her years. At just 22 years old, the British folk singer has already released three acclaimed albums, worked with legends like Jack White and producer Ethan Johns, and toured the globe. She’s performed in venues large and small, from English cathedrals to the Sydney Opera House, and she captures emotion more masterfully than songwriters twice her age.
