Track Of The Day

Brian's Track Of The Day for Wednesday 15th August 2018 is...

Marina Florance

This track was written by Marina Florance for the community project in Colchester organised by long time Ralph's Life favourite Johnno Casson called The Warn and Toasty Club after a performance there by Marina.

Marina recently worked with The Warm and Toasty Club, having been commissioned, along with co-writer Jules Fox Allen, to compose three songs based on the memories of residents at retirement complexes for the Coast To Coast Project. All three songs are now complete and you can support the wonderful work of The Warm and Toasty Club by buying the EP or one of the tracks. 

Marina Florance came to performing late in life, however, very soon after making the decision to "come out of the kitchen" to widen her audience she was awarded Arts Council funding, via the Escalator Project, to record a debut album, Somewhere Down The Line,using this as a platform she has since reached audiences never previously thought possible. 

She has had success with lots of radio play, including BBC6Music with Little Black Cloud and The Moon both of which were selected for the Tom Robinson Mixtape via 'Fresh On The Net'.
