Having graced stages with the big names at festivals such as Bluesfest, Peats Ridge, Festival Of The Sun, Open Arms, Blues On Broadbeach and Blues at Bridgetown, Nannup and Nukara Music Festivals in WA, she is often referred to as ‘Superstar’ or ‘The Amazing Minnie Marks’ by her peers.
This young singer/songwriter/guitarist/multi instrumentalist from the mid-north coast of NSW is playing to packed out shows and blazing a musical trail packing a percussive punch that far belies her years, which has touted her as ‘the next big thing’.
Minnie’s fresh groovy style, showmanship and fearless obsession towards her music is pushing the limits of her guitar, vocals and performance to new levels. While being compared to John Butler by punters her performances are like a pack of fruit tingles being thrown into a bottle of coke. With a smile as happy as the sunshine and a right hand like a machine gun Minnie is quickly making a household name for herself in the industry as the ‘finest young guitar player in Australia’.
Highlights of 2011 was taking out the ‘Emerging Artist’ title at the Nannup Music Festival and returning home to win the ‘Busking over Byron’ competition securing her a spot on the bill at Eastcoast Bluesfest 2011 and 2012 with a tour to Europe and New Zealand playing 16 shows in 21 days to top it off.
Minnie’s music is not confined by the limitations of styles or genres. She is now currently working on a new album which is due for release late 2012. This new release is destined to be played on a continuous loop.
Minnie is proudly endorsed by Maton Guitars, Elixir Strings, Woodskin Cajons, Esseti Picks and Wegen Picks.
