Minnie Marks

Minnie Marks is not just some blazingly-electrified guitar-playing who has a percussive punch that far belies her years. She is also a rare and triple threat: singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Relentlessly gigging across the globe, equipped with an old Goldtop in her hands and a revolutionary Farmer Foot Drum at her feet, Marks consistently pushes musical limits with her mind-blowing, dynamic guitar wizardry and her insanely powerful voice. And, if that’s not enough, Marks simultaneously creates bone marrow-shaking grooves with spare limbs on her Foot Drum kit. Finally all three beasts are married together to forge a mammoth-sized wall of sound.

From winning the world renowned ‘Bluesfest Busking Competition’ in 2011, to taking out the People’s Choice Award at both Blues At Bridgetown and Nannup Music Festival, plus earning the title of ‘Best Guitarist’ at the Open Arms Festival competition, Marks is no stranger on the block. Over the past twelve years, Marks has paved her musical journey around the world with three studio albums and one live album recorded in Stuttgart, Germany. The award-winning troubadour shows no sign of slowing down with her new twelve track album, scheduled for release in early 2022. This absolute powerhouse is ready for any battlefield, be it a festival audience or a bar room packed like a can of sardines. Her monstrous show DOES NOT disappoint and Blues on Broadbeach 2022 will be no exception.
