Marshall Okell + Guests
The Australian music scene has had a long history of uncovering phenomenal talent and the occasional larrikin. Lennox local Marshall Okell is one man who embodies both attributes. Back performing under his own name in 2012, Marshall Okell will be bringing a new band and new sound to audiences all over the world.
Dedicated to a life on the road, Marshall Okell is known for his crowd-rousing and energetic live performances as the front man and creative drive behind the crowd pleasing Marshall & The ‘Fro. A band who have ripped the lips off capacity audiences all over Australia, including festivals such as Byron Bay Bluesfest, Woodford Folk Festival, Peats ridge Festival, Festival of The Sun and the Optus Gympie Muster to name a few.
In the winter of 2011 Marshall felt it was time to evolve away from ‘The Fro’, so he decided to write a new album under his own name. As the notes and lyrics grew on the page, so too grew a grand vision of how the album should sound. He wanted it to be united under a special bond. So when Marshall Okell went looking for a rhythm section for his new band, he naturally asked his friends Ryan & Howler of Chase The Sun first.
After a very successful release of the ‘Sugar’ EP at this year’s Byron Bay Blues Festival the track Almost Killed You has just picked up best ‘Blues & Roots Artist of the Year’ at this year’s Music OZ awards held at The Sydney Opera House. Watch out for this new Aussie Super Group!! On the road in 2012.
