Marling had released a number of smaller singles and EPs before releasing her debut album

Album · 2008 · 12 Songs. A teenage Laura Marling first grabbed attention with songs she posted online, and she released her debut album at 18. But her music really harks back to the pre-Internet era: She writes subtle tunes and poetic lyrics that need to be absorbed the old-fashioned way-over multiple album spins. The production also sounds vintage, with acoustic guitars upfront, and drums used only when absolutely necessary. And if her delicate high register doesn't remind you of early Joni Mitchell, the sophisticated chord changes probably will. Alas I Cannot Swim Laura Marling.

Alas I Cannot Swim is an album that embraces the elegiac sensibilities of traditional folk and forward thinking contemporary folk music. Many have likened Marling to Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and Sandy Denny, but Marling's sound is every bit her own. On opening track Ghosts she sounds assured, her voice arresting and powerful. Lover please do not fall to your knees, it's not like I believe in everlasting love", Marling sings, with a conviction beyond her years. The Reading-based singer's vocals are stunning on Old Stone – a shiveringly affecting, dignified and rousing.
