Biography

Marshall was born and raised in Lake Travis, Texas (a city right outside of the infamous Austin, Texas). His youth was filled enjoying the hill country, both on on the lake and off it. From an early age, like many, music struck a chord within him. While still a young child, he would play SRV's version of "Little Wing" on repeat, over and over again.. absorbing the music into his brain, like a sponge. As he grew, he strayed away from his roots and fell into the more modern, beat driven, lyrical form of music commonly called hip hop. There he stayed for years, until his 8th year of schooling where he discovered the art of screaming. Some call it a senseless art.. but to him, it was beautiful. raw emotion. It was around that time he decided to pick up the guitar, driven by his wonderful Aunt Wendy who gave him a couple months worth of lessons. He began recording his freshman year of high school, and by late sophomore year, had 40 + recordings of original material, plus many other unrecorded tracks. Still no one knew he could sing. He finally came out of his shell sometime junior year, and formed his first band: Spectrum. After a few months, and some lineup changes, it was transformed into DOG AT LARGE. They gigged around austin, their most notable performance opening up for the ARC Angels at Antone's two nights in a row. Graduation came, and the members went their seperate ways. Since then, Marshall has been attending the Austin Live Music Academy, and diligently working on new material.

Marshall & The Moon Dance is his latest project. A fusion of country, mixed with the stylings he grew up listening to (and loving): rock, reggae, hip hop, funk, r&b, soul, and don't forget the blues.

"You cannot base your musical tastes off of 'genres'. There is bad music. And there is good music. I choose the latter." - Marshall Witte

Lyrics

Mr. Right (I Want You)

Written By: Marshall Witte

Please open the door to you’re heart
I Promise I will leave my boots outside
You know, I love who you are
Give me a chance, I’ll show you that I am Mr. Right
Please open the door to your soul
I promise I am down for the ride
Please tell me, what are we bullshittin’ for
Why don’t we let these sparks ignite

Into a flame
I want you
Do you feel the same
Or don’t you?

Please Open the door to your mind
and give me the walkthrough
I promise I will always be kind
And make you feel just like you ought to
Please open the door to you’re love
I promise I will love in return
Let our spirits take flight in the form of a dove
Towards the sun, never ever to return

We’ll fly Away
I want you
Do you feel the same
Or Don’t you?
You don’t need to leave
There’s nowhere you need to go
Will you be with me
Or won’t you?

Please open the door to you're heart
I promise I will leave my boots outside
You know, I love who you are
Give me a chance, I'll show you that I am Mr. Right

That’s my name
I want you
Do you feel the same
Or don’t you
I lay awake
All Night long
Do you do the same
Or don’t you?

Ooo Ooo Ooo

Written By: Marshall Witte

My world revolves around you
And I am so happy I found you
Cus some will wait a lifetime to feel the way I do
And some will wait a lifetime to find someone just like you

It's true
Ooo Ooo Ooo

My soul fits perfectly into you're soul
And I feel surreal when I hold you close
Yeah some will wait a lifetime to feel this embrace
And some will wait a lifetime to arrive at this place

It's true
I love you
Ooo Ooo Ooo
I love you

yes.. yes I do
