Marshall Artz

Dynamic Acoustic Americana

Marshall Artz is a guitar duo performing a distinctive original blend of Americana, Indie Folk and Blues forged together with in a powerful acoustic style. Their performances blend two guitars into a rhythmic and melodic mix that suggests a full band rather than just two guitars.

It is clear to see and hear why this dynamic duo is a driving force in the modern world of acoustic music.” - Len Jaffe

Fast February Fly By  

This short month of February has been full of quick cold weather events reminding us that Winter is still with us.  There are only 28 days this month and they have flown by.  Only 20 days after we enter the month of March is the first day of Spring!  The trees will be budding and flowers opening to show us Nature's gentle slide into warmer days.  A new season means new music from Marshall Artz.  Our last studio date at Cue is the first week in March and puts us on track for a Spring release.  We can't wait to share it all with you!  In the meantime be well.  Keep a song in your heart and a smile on your face.   

Mid January Jam   

January jammin' is virtual and long distance with folks tuning in to concerts broadcast from somewhere other than the club down the street.  For some of  us January jammin' is lounging around in our jammies all day long with nowhere to go.  Get out your guitar, put on some music and play along.  If you don't have a guitar just tap your feet and drum around on the kitchen table,  Tune into Marshall Artz videos on YouTube or Vimeo and get that band in the club down the street feeling again! Hover on the Photos tab and click on the Video button at this web site to save some time,  Be well and treat yourself to a bright start to the New Year!

November Ember Glow  

This coming week is one of Thanksgiving in the USA as we focus on the good we share together with our families and fellow citizens.  Unlike the celebrations in years past we are celebrating close to home and in smaller numbers.  That doesn't mean the sentiment is diminished but perhaps refocused.  Maybe the amps aren't turned up to 11 but the music is still playing!  Let the music play on. May we experience harmony in our response to the challenges facing us all as we roll into the fireside days of Autumn and Winter.  The ember glow will warm our hearts and quicken our spirits in time with the acoustic music filling our ears this season.  Brad and Kevin a.k.a. Marshall Artz wish you peace, hope, love and happiness throughout this holiday season.
