“Zodiacs Ladie’s Got Pipes Presents”
Bex Marshall
Bex plays an explosive slide rock n ragtime guitar, roots pickin with frails of bluegrass. Moonshine at midnight vocals with a back porch delivery, her lyrics are reflections of life and love with touches of humor, entwined with Americana roots.Bex pushes the boundaries of blues music from within this musical melting pot, but her songs have also been called timeless with touches of genius, her live show is fearless…there you have the tornado performance that is Bex Marshall.
She is a musical adventuress, described in the world press with comparisons to Memphis Minnie, Joan Armatrading, JJ Cale, Derek Trucks and….“Bonnie Raitt and Led Zep jamming in an everglade moonshine joint”.

A Devonshire lass now residing in London, the product of two very different family’s, one blue blooded landed gentry, the other Irish Romany.

Layla Musselwhite spent her childhood on the road in the back of a van, soaking up the music of Europe’s blues festivals and America’s roadside clubs with her father Charlie Musselwhite. A guitar apprenticeship with Charlie followed, drawing from his direct lineage with the great players of the Mississippi Delta. Fascinated by these blues originators and the slide players in particular, Layla learned her roots, and her guitar style sounds like a lost B-side from the back of the record store. Her songs draw from the “weird America” – that dark underbelly of hidden secrets and strange fairytales that lies underneath everyday life. Her voice has been described as “Cowboy Junkies meets Jewel meets Chrissie Hynde”, and there is an undeniable indie rock sensibility in this American girl. Don’t miss a chance to hear this exciting new voice in the continuum of great American music.
