Laura Marling, 'Sophia'

Posted: Updated:

British folk musician Laura Marling is only 21, but she's been getting critical acclaim across the waters for the past three years. She's already put out two albums -- Alas, I Cannot Swim and I Speak Because I Can -- both of which were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

Marling's style of folk is subtle, coming off in a more offhanded way that falls lightly on the years. But don't get us wrong -- her voice can pull you in like the best of 'em.

For her third album, A Creature I Don't Know -- which will be released Sept. 12 -- Marling plans to take her tour to cathedrals across the UK in October. Her first single off A Creature I Don't Know, "Sophia," even gets the cathedral treatment in her video.
