Raised in a musical household, Marling was playing guitar and writing songs from an early age at the prompting of her folk music loving father. Laura's own musical favorites included artists such as Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Nina Nastasia, and her early songwriting attempts reflected an influence from the alternative end of the folk scene. After playing a number of local gigs, the 15-year old Marling attracted the attention of Virgin Records who signed her up and released her first three albums. The second of the three, 'I Speak Because I Can', was released on vinyl by Diverse Records on 15th February 2011, the same week she was awarded "Best British Female" at the Brit Awards.In April of this year, Virgin released a 2 CD version of current album 'A Creature I Don't Know'. The second CD featured a live performance from York Minster Cathedral which draws together songs from all three albums and is already a formidable 'greatest hits' set. Diverse Records now presents this stunning live performance as a stand-alone deluxe 180 gm double LP in a gatefold package.
