Marley Blandford is a singer-songwriter & guitarist/pianist from Portsmouth, binding together a blend of pop, soul and folk.

His follow up single “Counting Stars” hit number 1 on nationwide radio station Orla FM in Poland in 2015 as voted by listeners, sitting in the top position for 3 weeks above the likes of Katy Perry & Ed Sheeran. His TV debut on BBC One in 2015 led to opening shows for Christina Perri and Lawson, playing to thousands of people across the year. “A Shooting Star Ain’t A Sign Of Love”, released in 2016, is an accomplished mix of his skilled songwriting abilities with songs ranging from country pop to soul ballads. It earned him prime slots at festivals such as at Victorious Festival, Bestival & Isle Of Wight Festival, later winning Best Unsigned Act at Victorious Festival 2016 & Best Solo Artist 2016 at WOW24/7 Awards. After opening shows for Lucy Spraggan, Janet Devlin, Matt Cardle & Luke Friend across the UK in the last 12 months, Marley is set for a strong 2020 after releasing his first live album in 2019.
