There is something to be said about an artist when their biggest fans are other musicians, some musicians are talented and then a rare few who are truly gifted, the latter being the case with Minnie Marks now a regular on the major festival circuit.
With an insane talent that’s out of control playing what she calls dirty sweet rock & roll this young singer/songwriter/guitarist/multi instrumentalist is being compared to everyone from the likes of John Butler, Janis Joplin, Ash Grunwald, and even the late great Billy Thorpe.
Touring a new album release this bombshell explodes on stage pushing the limits of her guitar, vocals and performance, kicking arse and playing to packed out shows, leaving little doubt everybody is touting her as ‘the next big thing’.
“She plays guitar like nothing I’ve ever seen before, she sings like Janis Joplin, she’s 17 and she’s going to blow the world apart.” • Kim Churchill
“So I heard you’re better than my brother” • Phil Emmanuel
“An extraordinary performer, I have never seen or heard anything quite like her, Minnie plays guitar, sings and stomps like her every breath depends upon it, her passion and wonderful sense of fun is refreshing.” • Michael Barker (John Butler, Split Enz)
“You have to come and see this girl, she makes every other musician look ordinary” • Gypsie Howls
“You rock baby, you’re killing it. The world is your oyster. If I were an army lieutenant with a shirt full of medals I would give you one. You’re my hero, I’m shakin’ in my boots. One word, PRODIGY!” • Sarah McLeod (Superjesus)
