    Gig Review – Laura Marling In Los Angeles

    By J. Brown

    As impressive as ever, British folk singer-songwriter Laura Marling is currently touring the United States to promote her new album A Creature I Don’t Know. Simply put, she was mesmerizing and held the captive audience spellbound at the Masonic Lodge in the Hollywood Forever cemetery. In a chapel-like setting dimly lit by maroon-colored walls and gothic candles, the intimate gathering left us all ready to sit at the feet of this amazingly talented and poetic 21-year-old. The audience barely made a peep throughout the show, as if to ensure that no word, no lyric, no beat was left unheard.
