An explosion of blue hot acoustic slide roots/rock, poker twisted with a whippin of Bluegrass, a versatile guitarist with a unique earthy melting pot of a voice.
Songwriter/producer Bex Marshall possesses a guitar skill that has been likened to Stevie Ray Vaughan to Derek Trucks, Rory Gallagher to Robert Johnson.
She exudes excitement and charisma as she performs solo or with her band on stages across the globe. She is an adventuress, a writer, seasoned guitar player and passionate vocalist, her musical influences are varied and many although comparisons have ranged from JJ Cale to Hendrix, her music has been described as... “Bonnie Raitt and Led Zep jamming in an everglade moonshine joint”.
Her song writing is highly praised in her latest album reviews….“Touches of genius” “Staggering” ‘Intelligent and interesting’, ‘Timeless’, ‘…She has mastered the art of making new material sound like its been found in long forgotten vaults” Net Rhythms
She is a troubadour, telling her tales with humour and wit, honesty and slang, a musical inspiration, poetry to blues, an instrumental turbine of melody, people gawp at her fearless playing.
The new album ‘Kitchen Table’ is a mix of roots, rock rags entwined with bluegrass frfr ailsnd home down blues slide.
Live, she plays all this solo, she lets rip like no ones watching, the gal likes to have fun onstage it’s in her blood.
THEN there’s her voice….Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, Joan Armatrading, Beth Hart, Bonnie Raitt…all have been mentioned in comparisons but Bex has her own style Powerful, yet subtle, husky yet clear cut and totally unforgettable. “No Gimmicks”, ‘Raw’, ‘Gritty’ and ‘Absolute stand out’,
