and I had a short interview with her:
Q: When did you start playing Music?
A: I started playing classical, flamenco, ragtime, Latin American music when I was 9. Lots of guitar picking!
Q: I would classify your new CD “House of Mercy” as modern roots music. Do you agree?
A: Thank you and I agree. For me it incorporates all roots, but it is a very strong vain of the blues, the blues runs through everything. The main thing is the song!
Q: As a guitar player, singer and songwriter who are your musical heroes ?
A: There are so many, for guitar I love so many from Jimi Hendrix to Chat Atkins, to vocalists Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Robert Plant and to songwriting storytellers like Bob Dylan and Elton John.
Q: Who is Bex Marshall? What makes her happy and what annoys her?
A: My husband makes me very happy. I am happily married! Travelling and performing music makes me happy.
Big corporations taking advantage of talented people annoy me.
Q: What are you favorite CD’s?
A: My favorite CD’s are:
Harvest by Neil Young
Atlanta Crossing by Rod Stewart
Exile In Main Street by Rolling Stones
And I love the music of JJ Cale, The Band and Elton John
I like Americana and roots music. Music that provokes emotions.
There is so many music I like!
Q: Where will you be five year from now?
A: Being back here in the Maloe Malo! (laughing). Still being happily married and traveling the world. And album number 6!
Q: Is “House of Mercy” your first album?
A: No it is not. The “House of Mercy” is my third album, I produced it. It is not released yet. We still have to make a few deals.
There are a lot of great guest musicians. It is really All Star Band!
My second album is “Kitchen table” I toured America and Australia with.
Thank you for this interview wishing you lots of success and have a great show tonight.
