After floating around the Leeds Music Scene under various guises for a number of years, Dan Schofield and fellow guitarist Chris Simpson collaborated early 2008 with the aim to create a fresh dynamic sound.

Having worked with the two guitarists in a previous outfit, drummer James Turton completed the line up, and in October 2008 The Beat Marshals unleashed their high energy progressive indie rock onto the Leeds Music Scene.

With no bass player throughout early performances, The Beat Marshals relied heavily on technology to complete their live set up. In May 2009, bass guitarist Naz Nordin joined the band to offer his distinctive playing style.

With a solid foundation based on dedication and self-belief, and with no fear of treading into the unfamiliar, The Beat Marshals distinctively fuse elements of 70’s riff based rock, grunge, old school British indie and contemporary electronica, driven by intense beats and thunderous bass whilst demonstrating breathtaking melodious qualities.

Throughout their time together, The Beat Marshals have managed to make an impressive impact on the live music circuit. The band took part in the 2009 Surface Unsigned Festival where they reached the semi-final stage at Manchester Academy. They were also regional finalists in the 2010 Live and Unsigned showcase at Sheffield City Hall.

The Beat Marshals have also had the opportunity to play alongside some of the finest local, national and international talent, such as Leeds indie favourites Club Smith, Atlantic Records' Scars On 45 and Malaysian outfit Couple during their 2010 UK Tour.

The Beat Marshals are set to continue to build on the strong impression they have created on the unsigned music circuit.
