Biography

Epic art-indie-Weimar, part Kate Bush, part PJ Harvey, with Roxy Music’s dress sense.

Marcella first found recognition as the founder of the Puppini Sisters, the close-harmony trio cherished around the world for their ability to take any song and imbue it with the charm, poise and swing of 1940s pop.
But this is another Marcella Puppini – an altogether darker proposition.

This Marcella sings of dirty old men flashing at teenage girls and of manifestations of the devil in the Italian countryside, and leads a nine-piece band whose members are every bit as dazzling as their frontwoman.
The two Marcellas seem so unlike, they might be different people. But this is typical of Marcella’s ability to metamorphose, her quest for self-reinvention. It started when she abandoned an idyllic existence in Bologna, Italy, for London and the notoriously fraught life of a fashion student at Central St Martins School of Art. In Italy, she was a lady cultured in the classics: ancient Greek, Latin, the history of art. In London, she transformed herself into a doyenne of modern punk, graduating from her degree course to a place in Vivienne Westwood’s production team.
But deep down, what Marcella really wanted to be was a singer. She sang throughout her teens: in covers bands, in madrigal choirs, in an all-girl punk outfit called Dead Sex Kitten. And after two years with Vivienne Westwood, Marcella knew it was time to shed another skin.
