Marlene Oak @ Strandkompaniet
21 Jul at 20:00 - PM23:00
Growing up on Värmdö outside Stockholm, Marlene Oak used music as her refuge from reality. Her teenage years were spent as a street musician in the Old Town, where her strong voice and emotional expression were noticed by passers-by - and finally took her to a record deal.
She has toured around the country as a liaison to Miss Li, Whitney Rose, Susto and at festivals such as Way Out West and STHLM Americana. In 2019, her second EP “Silver moon” was released, which received a lot of attention internationally. In 2020, Marlene Oak has released a handful of singles that led to the release of her debut album "Northern Winds" on August 28.
Despite traditional musical influences, often taken from songwriters and singers such as Karen Dalton, Janis Joplin and "old americana" (Marlene's own words), such as Bob Dylan and Neil Young and the house god Jeff Buckley, she has managed to create her own, modern sound .
