marla | madawaska valley


Marla is a German/Spanish singer-songwriter, her upcoming debut album ‘Madawaska Valley’ was recorded in Toronto and will be released April 8th via Melting Pot Music. Even though Marla sang her whole life, she never thought she’d pursue music. As her sister quit the guitar, Marla picked it and covered tunes until she started writing around the age of 15. Besides the fact that she played classical cello since age 6, she grew up with no musical background in her family.

Inspired by traveling the world, Marla is processing her lost love in these songs, softly picked on acoustic guitar. Her mellow dreamy melodies and deep airy voice might remind one of artists like Jessica Pratt and reminiscent Nico. After touring with David Celia in early 2015, she decided to record her debut album in Toronto with him as producer and sideman. She easily won over audiences playing from Toronto, over Montreal up to Halifax and all over Europe.

Out on April 8th via Melting Pot Music, available on Bandcamp.
