Marcia Ball has been belting out rollicking piano blues for over 50 years. The 2018 Texas State Musician of the Year has achieved global acclaim for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Ball cites soul superstar Irma Thomas as a key vocal influence, and her piano performance follows in the tradition of Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino. Ball’s unique flair for combining Texas boogie with swampy New Orleans ballads has made her a one-of-a-kind favorite. With each new release her reputation as a profoundly soulful singer, a boundlessly talented pianist, and a courageous, inventive songwriter continues to grow.
