Minnie Marks is not just some blazingly electrified guitar playing freak of nature. 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, that roars out her truth through song as if her own life depended on it. And, if that’s not enough, 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 winning place of ‘Best Guitarist’ for the Open Arms Festival competition, Marks is no stranger on the block.
Here’s what a few master musicians have to say….
“BADASS” - Jennifer Batten (Guitarist for Michael Jackson and Jeff Beck)

"Minnie brings undeniable musical virtuosity, a huge personality and an inspiring energy and confidence in every performance" - Joe Robinson
“Minnie Marks, she plays guitar like nothing I’ve ever seen before, she sings like Janis Joplin, she’s going to blow the world apart.” – Kim Churchill
“I’m shakin’ in my boots. One word, PRODIGY!” - Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus)
“One of the finest young guitar players in the country” - Julz Parker (Hussy Hicks)
"Damn, I don't think I've ever seen a female shred harder than you in the flesh" - Dallas Frasca
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.
You’ve been warned. This absolute powerhouse is ready for any battlefield, be it a festival audience or a bar room packed like a can of sardines. Wind her up and watch her go! Her monstrous show DOES NOT disappoint.
