Bio and Stuart’s show info | Artist Web site: http://www.marciaball.com/

“Sophisticated and earthy, Ball pounds the ivories like a classier Jerry Lee Lewis–Her originals sound like timeless classics and southern soul masterpieces that no one else can imitate” – Living Blues Magazine

“Ball is the bayou queen of the piano, steeped in blues and honky-tonk. When revved… she’s a rollicking dynamo spewing heat-seeking triplets from the ivories while her horn-driven band wails. She’s also a subtle songwriter and a formidable singer with a wisp of huskiness edging her Cajun-Texan twang.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune

“a class act whose soulful, horn-laden swamp pop and murderous honky-tonk make her a stellar example of musical artistry.” – The Austin Chronicle
