PREMIERE: L.R Marsh delivers immersive bluesy brilliance on Home

Debut releases can be tough. Many artists take some time to land upon a concrete sound, hence their debut offering often lack direction. South Australian singer-songwriter L.R Marsh, however, is not one of these artists.

With the release of his debut single Home, Marsh has immediately established his penchant for crafting endearing and earthy folk gems. If you’re not already listening to this artist, we strongly recommend you change that – we’re expecting some big things from this guy.

On his debut single Home, South Australian singer-songwriter L.R Marsh crafts a captivating and raw slice of bluesy folk brilliance.

All throughout the new single, L.R Marsh weaves elements of folk, blues, and alt-rock to deliver a sound that feel equal parts familiar and fresh. It’s the kind of music that wears its influences proudly on its sleeve, but leans forward into new and exciting sonic territories. With instrumentation that feels simultaneously raw and immersive, endearingly warm vocal hooks, and sharp, personal lyricism, Home is the kind of track you’ll be hooked on for weeks.

Across its sprawling five-and-a-half-minute run-time, the song builds into a truly spell-binding piece of music. Marsh is a brooding but captivating presence, effortlessly oozing out an undeniable musical charisma.

Home is the first slice off L.R Marsh’s debut album, set for release next month. And judging by the quality of what we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes.
