Chris Marshall

 Portland, Oregon, USA

Alt.Country singer-songwriter hailed by Wildy's World as "an artist with the potential to not only be popular, but also lasting and significant," his debut full-length releases April 26th, 2011 on In Music We Trust Records.


"CHRIS MARSHALL has been called 'a sweet-voiced local country boy with some righteous gospel in his blood,' by the Portland Monthly, and he proves to hold that definition true. His songs are full of profound reflection, lyrics of redemption and love finding light in music that rings of authentic Americana. His latest album, August Light (out April 26th, 2011 on In Music We Trust Records), is full of country-tinged songs that are enhanced with both mystery and hopefulness. His songwriting is unaffected and distinguished, his honesty carrying emotional depth. During the recording of the albums closing song, "A Hallelujah Song," Marshall received the devastating news of a friend's coma and ensuing death. The tragedy influenced him in ways he had never known. August Light is the ode to the life that had passed, its sincerity and joy beautiful." (Excerpt from Mississippi Studios venue newsletter previewing February 10th, 2011 headlining performance)

Chris has shared the stage with a diverse range of national talent in the last year, including Tift Merritt, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, Richmond Fontaine, Bill Mallonee, and Grammy Award-winning producer and songwriter Charlie Peacock. His debut full-length, "August Light," releases April 26th on In Music We Trust Records.
