Laura Marling’s subtle, engrossing songs are colored with shades of anger, forthrightness, and self-criticism. She sings them with an agile, emotional voice, accompanying herself on guitar. Surprisingly, this British composer of worldly songs is only 17 years old. Laura Marling joins host David Garland to talk about and perform her songs, giving listeners a chance to hear this important new artist in advance of the release of her first album.
