JANIS 2018… What more do you need to know?
Bex Marshall’s unique style of guitar playing is a combined technique of slide, blues rock with electric ragtime and roots pickin’.
Her voice is a powerful melting pot of old black woman’s heartache and rock diva soul. Bex is a writer of distinction and notability, she pushes the boundaries of blues, her songs have been called timeless, touches of genius and she tours solo or as a three piece, she is a musical tornado.
Bex was born in Devon but now based in London, the product of two very different family’s, one blue blooded landed gentry, a her great grandfather was the Squire of Cornwall and the other Irish Romany her great great grandmother was the Madam Olga the fortune teller.
As a child at family gatherings her uncles would always play and stand her on the table to sing, at 11 years old she was given a 1963 Gibson Hummingbird by her Uncle David (The Mauraders) and started playing, she got hooked on instrumentals and classical guitar standards which stretched her fingers and gave her a great basis for her own music to develop, flamenco, ragtime, country chicken pickin’, rock and on to blues and roots where she is now in her element.
She always had a passion for travelling, its in her blood and trained as a croupier at 18 began her travels around the world working gaming tables on cruise liners to Park Lane even dealing illegal poker games in Amsterdam. She hitch hiked the coast of Australia on cattle trains and always with a guitar on her back living and storing tales. Now she is headlining some of the worlds most prestigious stages playing and singing and producing her own music.
