The Long Way Home EP (2006)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Growing up in the Appalachian foothills, Evan Marshall was steeped in the sounds of local roots music as much as the commercial radio waves of greater America. Add to this a love of storytelling, from tales heard round the hearth to the layered nuances of such great writers as Flannery O’Connor and Mark Twain, and the intrigue of his sound becomes clear. Evan’s music is picturesque Americana, from more mainstream Nashville sounds to cuts filled with bluegrass, rock, and blues inflections. But like all true artists, his repertoire in the end defies categorization. Evan Marshall’s music is best described in the imagery conjured by his style: the longing of rock ‘n roll, the haunted heirlooms of alt-country, and the universal hope found on an outstretched American highway.

Having been a songwriter for over a decade, Evan Marshall’s music has always been, first and foremost, about storytelling. However, with the recent release of the The Long Way Home EP, he proves his ability to interlace lyrical depth and powerful melody. Cut in the Triad region of eastern North Carolina, the EP has introduced Evan to new audiences, all of whom are asking, “Why havent I heard of this before?!” Fusing the lyrical intensity of Dylan and Springsteen with the musicality of a Gram Parsons or Ryan Adams, Marshall’s EP mixes smooth, earthy vocals with the spirit of hard country and the gravitas of folk storytelling. 2006 Musician of the year, Martha Bassett, says of Evan’s recent release: “The songs are rich and dark, and his sweet voice pulls you into the stories he tells.”*

Already having cut his chops both on radio and onstage throughout the region, Evan Marshall is a polished gem of a performer ready to sparkle. And with an ever-expanding catalog of songs waiting to be cut, Marshall as a songwriter is ripe for the picking.
