Marcia Ball


Marcia Ball is a woman with a reputation.

The Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist/vocalist/songwriter is famed worldwide for igniting a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she strolls on stage. Ball's groove-laden New Orleans boogie and rollicking Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music fans all over the world. Her new CD, Roadside Attractions (her 15th solo recording), is a tour-de-force of Marcia's seemingly endless talent, and among the most emotionally moving recordings she has ever made.

She is a four time Grammy nominee, an inductee in the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame, the winner of eight Blues Music Awards and at the 18th Annual Living Blues Readers' Poll Awards was voted Female Blues Artist of the Year and Most Outstanding Musician (Keyboard).
