Laura Marling: Childhood & Early Musical Career

Laura Marling was born in Hampshire, England, where she learned guitar at a young age. As a teenager, Laura was one of the original members of Noah and the Whale. During the time that she was in the band, she dated the band's singer, Charlie Fink but left after the release of their album Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down. The artist Emmy the Great was also in the band around the same time.

In 2007, Laura Marling appeared on 'Suspicious Eyes' by The Rakes, a track from their album Ten New Messages, after their singer Alan Donohoe discovered her on Myspace. She went on t

collaborate with Mystery Jets on their single 'Young Love'.

Laura Marling: Music Career

Laura Marling's debut solo album, Alas, I Cannot Swim, was released in 2008. The album went on to be nominated for that year's Mercury Music Prize but lost out to Elbow's The Seldom Seen Kid. Following the release of the album, she embarked on her 'Night Terror Tour', named after the single 'Night Terror'. Laura Marling was also invited to tour with Jamie T, as well as opening for Adam Green (of The Moldy Peaches). Laura Marlin also infamously chose to perform on the street for her fans, after being denied entry to her own gig for being underage.

In 2009, in an interview with The Guardian, Laura Marling announced that she was dating Marcus Mumford of the British folk band Mumford and Sons.

Laura Marling's second album, I Speak Because I Can was released in 2010 and was produced by Ethan Jones. The debut single released from the album was 'Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)'.
