It was only a year ago this July 1st 2010, that Marshall Dane won Country 95.3 FM’s “Big Break Competition”. He was waiting and ready to make sure that if this was going to be his ‘big break’, he was prepared to deliver.
Up until then, he was already recognized as one of the hardest working musicians in the country – writing, gigging, networking, moving, shaking, and performing his tail off.
Since his “Big Break”, Marshall has performed with Alan Jackson, Emerson Drive, Michelle Wright, Shane Yellowbird, Jason Blaine, Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee, Alex J. Robinson, Jim Cuddy, and Gord Downie. He has also been signed to The Agency Group on Nick Meinema’s roster. Brian Allen produced and Jason Barry engineered the new album “Running Stop Signs”. Marshall co-wrote many of the tracks with great writers such as Paul Brandt, Jason Matthews, and Dan Murph. Now headlining festivals on his own, Marshall won friends with radio stations and their listeners across Canada via his debut single “Love and Alcohol”. The next single “Bad Choices” will give Marshall’s fans another taste of his fun side. Here’s a sample:
“…the little red dress down at the end of the bar,
now that’s my ticket to a broken heart…
I’m not a bad guy…I just make some Bad Choices.”
Brought up in St. Catharines, Ontario, in a devout household of 7 children, this GM town boy quickly realized a passion for music and the personal salvation it would bring. He left a secure corporate job for the life of a musical entrepreneur, intent on his goal – the world stage.
If the successes of this past year are any indication of where Marshall Dane is heading – the world stage is not far away.www.marshalldane.com
