Marcia Ball / Press

New York Times

“Rollicking roadhouse rave-ups and soulful Gulf Coast R&B”

USA Today

“Take a buttery voice laid over two-fisted barrelhouse piano playing and apply it to boogie, blues, rock and soul and it’s a killer combination that leaves your toes tapping”

Associated Press

“Bayou boogie has a queen and her name is Marcia Ball.”

New Orleans Times Picayune

"A joyful musical tour of the territory between New Orleans and Austin. Ball’s voice can break your heart with a ballad or break your back with a rocker.”

Boston Herald

“a class act whose soulful, horn-laden swamp pop and murderous honky-tonk make her a stellar example of musical artistry.”

Austin Chronicle

“Sophisticated and earthy, Ball pounds the ivories like a classier Jerry Lee Lewis…Her originals sound like timeless classics and southern soul masterpieces that no one else can imitate”

Living Blues
