About Marissa Nadler
On stage, clad in black shawls and cascading tresses, Marissa Nadler performs with an intricate finger-style on the guitar, ukele, and 5-string banjo. Yet it is often her voice that is a shuttle towards another time, a soprano reverberating with melancholy and longing. From her earliest incarnations, Marissa appeared with music that was unique and gorgeous skillfully and simply hinting at the songs of the sea, the haunting chansons of maidens, the cowboy ditties of ranchers, and the funerary processions of mourners.
Her many early, homemade CDs, lovingly decorated and inscribed to her nearest and dearest brought the attention of Eclipse Recordsin Arizona. Ed Hardy, who has gained a reputation for releasing beautiful, eclectic music, released Marissas first LP Ballads of Living and Dying in 2004, a release that Pitchfork called a landscape you may want to get lost in for a century or two, and that The Wire called a beauty.
Ballads of Living and Dying was released in the UK in early February of 2005 by Beautiful Happiness Records, meeting the same acclaim overseas as it did in the States, with the Guardian calling it uncommonly lovely…hard to get out of your head. The Saga of Mayflower May was released just a few months ago, and has garnered the same vast critical acclaim as did Ballads of Living and Dying, with Pitchfork calling it, among other things, simply an “entralling album.”
