I TAPED an update, Dave…

(The title is a loving dig at Dave Lee from The Bugcast, who ribbed me for saying that I was "taping" an update for Patreon.) I just posted a video update to Patreon, in which I discuss a guitar build, plans for an upcoming video and the…

RIP, Dave…

  Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved making music. He taught himself piano, with a little help, then guitar, then drums and bass, and eventually some awful saxophone. As he grew older, he started recording music and writing…

This Town

I wrote this sweet, sad thing once upon a time.  I had to revisit it for possible submission for a festival performance, so I decided to marry it to an appropriate video.  I found a lovely one by Matthias Groeneveld of the Netherlands. (You…

Do you love your guitar?

Well, I obviously do. And if you do.... I'm working on a new track, and a video to go along with it - and I'd love to include a pic of you loving your guitar (or bass) in it. (You'll be in the credits, of course.) So if you'd like me to…

News for my 60th spin around the sun…

Greetings to you and yours... I hope this finds you well at the start of a new year that, I HOPE, won't be as crazy as the past couple have been. I thought that my 60th birthday would be a good time to reconnect with you all, and give…

A little tease…

I've been working on a bunch of new tracks in the studio... here's just a little tease.

A blast from the past… 2007 interview

In 2007, I did an interview  (with a sore throat) , on an NYC TV show called "The New Yorkers". It was originally only available on MySpace, and when they revamped, a bunch of old videos were lost. It turned up on a hard drive here, and…

I’m FREE.

This idea has been percolating in me for some time, and after very careful consideration, I've decided to go ahead with it. I'm giving my music away. Moving forward, beginning on 9/22/2021, I will offer my music to anyone, for no charge.…

A precious Van Halen memory

It was a Saturday - March 25, 1978. Which would have made me 14. I was hanging out in my room in New Jersey... with WPIX-FM, my favorite station, playing - I listened to it all the time. They had been playing this single - You Really…

Uncharted!

My dear friends from across the pond, Dave and Caroline Lee of The Bugcast, featured me for a full half hour on their DN12 Live Broadcast. I was totally chuffed (see what I did there?) that they'd ask, and that they included me.  Plus, the…

A lovely review of Let It Go

A lovely review of Let It Go, from my dear friend (and awesome musician) Dave Fields. Very grateful. Dave Fields review of Mark Marshall’s LET IT GO by Dave Fields Big City Blues Magazine First of all let me start of by saying that I’ve…

A wonderful conversation

I had a wonderful talk with Sal Miccio of Woodstock Regional Artists, which aired on 7/7. Many thanks to Sal and David Laks for making it happen!

Lover, please…

Lover, please has waited a very, very long time to be released. It's the second video from the Let It Go album. Rather than make it a performance video, I decided to make it a lyric video, backed by manipulated public domain footage. It…

Into Each Life – the room!

I always loved "making of" featurettes... and now I get to share one! I first heard Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall - a record by Ella Fitzgerald and the Ink Spots - while playing a video game called Fallout 3.  In F3, you are wandering…

Into Each Life – the video

In the beginning of 2019, Lara Hope agreed to do a duet with me - a cover of an old Ella Fitzgerald/Ink Spots tune.  Rather than doing a note-for-note cover (what's the point?), I decided to swap genders on the track - she was a trooper and…

The Bandcamp DISCOGRAPHY sale!

  In light of the difficult times artists are facing right now, the very kind folks at Bandcamp are suspending all their fees for sales - for 24 hours - from midnight to midnight (Pacific) today. I have three albums up there, plus…

My Yearly New Year’s Ode

  In the last remaining hours of another year about to end I just had to take a moment and thank you for being my friend The world was better 'cause you were here and the moments we shared were dear to me And I can't…

Something I did for the Geezüs Butlers

I did the audio mixes and video editing on these, for my dear friends in the Geezüs Butlers band.

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time, two universes collided... Sal Caltabiano was the first person ever to invite me into a studio to create and co-create... me at the ripe old age of 15, when he was in his early twenties. It was the first time I ever got to multitrack.…

Playing O+!!! – The O Positive Festival

  I've lived in the city of Kingston, New York for over 10 years. It is my home, in a way that no other place has ever been. Which makes me particularly proud to have been accepted for a wonderful, nationally-growing event - The…
