Bex Marshall Biog

Bex Marshall’s unique style of guitar playing is a combined technique of slide, blues, rock, ragtime and roots pickin’. Her voice is a powerful melting pot of old black woman’s heartache and rock diva soul. Bex is an award winning writer of distinction and notability, she pushes the boundaries of blues, her songs have been called timeless, touches of genius, and on stage she is literally a musical tornado.Playing bass, rhythm and lead on her cutaway Ozark Dobro, her fingers flying over the frets, her vintage cowgirl boots stomping and kicking, a whirlwind of blonde hair twisting across her face as another wave of moonshine vocals hits the mike......Her solo shows world wide are never taken lightly, her last three 40 date USA tours and the same in Australia testify to that, when opportunity arises she has the knack to energize any pick up band where ever she maybe, from Memphis blues /soul bands on Bleaker street to country / blues in Austin to head on blues / rock in Brisbane.... Bex Marshall is a show stopper.

Guardian UK writer review - Bex Marshall can play her guitar like the proverbial hellhound was on her trail and sing her heart out in a voice honed to a soulful peal by hundreds of hardworking gigs across the UK & US. Most of the material speak of stories from the road and street, with strong melodies that intrigue the ear, backed by guitar work that astonishes. This girl can play like a demon in a variety of styles, including slide & finger picking. She rocks and wails her country soul and blues with obvious relish, pumping out riffs that hauled the audience to their feet. In between songs, she builds a warm rapport with humour and style and it was noticeable how, as the set progressed, the after-song applause grew to an enthusiastic frenzy. John May - Brighton (UK)
