Marsha Swanson - 'How are You ?', May 26th



How Are You? Is taken from Album of the Year, ‘Sentient Stardust;’ by Folk Artist of the Year 2007, Marsha Swanson.

Single Launch: 5th June – Power Acoustic Rooms, London

Channel M Breakfast Show – 24th April

The album beat off some formidable competition to pick up Album of the Year title at the Glasswerk New Music Awards in Oct 07. The award merely confirmed what industry insiders knew of the emerging talent of Marsha Swanson. The album featured production from ex-Jocasta front man Tim Arnold and Alex Mcgowan co/writer & producer for Martina Topley Bird's album Quixotic. The album artwork is designed by the legendary Storm Thorgerson, creator of numerous iconic album covers for Pink Floyd, Audioslave, Muse and many more.

‘Sentient Stardust’ is a wonderfully eclectic blend of styles, and Marsha's song writing, arrangement and production skills are exemplary once again.

Nick Serre – The Mix/Future Music

‘A writer of intelligent and thought provoking songs that have the added bonus of being ridiculously catchy’

Rock n Reel Magazine

Last year saw two BBC regional radio tours and saw Marsha perform exclusive acoustic sets at the likes of BBC Manchester and BBC Wales, plus many more. 2007 success culminated in two TV appearances, marking a remarkable twelve months for the London songwriter. Singles from the album all received daytime regional BBC and commercial radio airplay. The new album is coated with sweet simplicity and radio friendly tracks, but also contains some darker more emotional tracks.

Marsha Swanson is without doubt one of the brightest new artists emerging in the UK at the moment, and 2008 is already filling fast with more BBC dates confirmed, as well as major festival plans and full UK distributed single and a stunning new video release to support the single.

‘Emotional, powerful, melancholic and often joyous…there’s nothing to disappoint and she promises to deliver a lot more given the chance.’

Amplified Magazine

‘Comparisons to the likes of Carole King, Beth Nielsen-Chapman and Suzanne Vega are not merely fanciful; Swanson delivers a similar brand of grown-up, well-written pop.’

Green Man

‘…Superb artist.’

Toxic Pete

‘In a society that seems obsessed with singer/songwriters, Marsha Swanson is a well needed breath of fresh air.’
