Overflow of the Heart
Marshall has a love affair with the "song." He is a fan of singer/songwriters like Bruce Cockburn, Pierce Pettis, Richard Thompson, and Paul Simon, to name a few. He's been writing and performing his own material for many decades. His guitar music is composed with a liberal use of alternate tunings that create a lush musical backdrop for his clear voice and expressive lyrics. Marshall says he believes a great song is like a nesting doll. On the surface, the melody and music draw you in. But the more you listen, the more it "opens itself up" to deeper emotion and deeper meaning. His tunes run the gambit from touching ballads to rousing rockers.
