Marlene Cummins - The Blues it Knows Your Name

Marlene Cummins - The Blues it Knows Your Name
Born in the southwest town of Cunnamulla, her traditional homelands are Laura up Cape York way on her Father’ side (Guguyelandji), and Keppel Island (Woppaburra) on her Mother’s side. Growing up tin shacks and tents on a fringe camp of the Bungal River called Boomerang Alley, in the town of Winton, Marlene would often wander off into the bush and find the largest dead log for her "stage" and perform on her own.

Marlene was raised with a very political 'grassroots' upbringing, as her Father Darcy Cummins was a pioneer in fighting racial injustice. Just like her father, Marlene likes to use music as a medium to make the world a better place to live in.
Marlene refined her skills as a blues saxophonist and songwriter at the Berklee College of Music in Boston in the mid-90s. Marlene has been regular broadcaster on Koori Radio with her Deadly Award winning show, ‘Marloo’s Blues’.

Now Marlene is preparing to release her first full-length album, Koori Woman Blues through GoSet Music.

About this track...

The Blues it Knows Your Name was inspired by Marlene's life and written for her by long time music colleague and friend Murray Cook.
