In order to be a great folk artist an individual must have the ability to be a great story teller. Fortunately for young singer/songwriter Marika Hackman, she seems to have this talent along with a hauntingly beautiful voice.
Marika’s sound is quite different to the happy-go-lucky folk music that seems to be gathering attention at the moment. Her striking vocals and intelligent lyrics pair together to tell intriguing stories on both dreams and nightmares.
Her single ‘Bath is Black’ is an enchanting song that feels both soulful and sombre but also equally haunting and dark. If you’re a fan of artist such as Lucy Rose and Lianne La Havas then you are sure to love Markia’s work.
