ABOUT MARCIA BALL:
Singer/pianist Marcia Ball knows how to raise roofs and tear down walls with her infectious, intelligent and deeply emotional brand of Southern boogie, rollicking, roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads. Over the course of her three-decade career, Ball has earned a huge and intensely loyal following all over the world. Her exquisite piano playing and passionate, playful vocals fuse New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B with Austin's deep songwriting tradition into a sound No Depression described as "a little rock, a lot of roll, a pinch of rhythm and a handful of blues."
Among Ball's many honors: she is four-time Grammy nominee, winner of eight Blues Music Awards, winner of two 2009 Living Blues Readers' Poll Awards for Blues Artists of the Year (Female) and Most Outstanding Musician (Keyboard), as well as a member of the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame.
