  • About
  • Craig Marshall's lengthy musical resume stretches back to his teen years performing with various combos in his hometown of Syracuse, New York. He moved to Austin in the early 1990s with his then-band, the country-leaning Delta Rays, but soon found himself founding and leading the locally popular Sinatra-style jazz-swing outfit The Lucky Strikes. Over the past two decades, the Austin, TX-based singer-songwriter-guitarist has quietly built a remarkably accomplished body of work, drawing upon his wide-ranging musical background to craft engagingly melodic, personally-charged music that's as emotionally resonant as it is catchy. Along the way, his songs were picked up for a variety of film and TV soundtracks, and his compositions were covered by a variety of artists, including Triple A sweethearts The Kennedys, Austin favorites Charlie Faye, Trish Murphy, and noted country-rocker Penny Jo Pullus.

CRAIG MARSHALL'S TURNAROUND SHOWCASES ACCOMPLISHED
CENTRAL TEXAS SONGWRITER IN ABSOLUTELY PEAK FORM

AUSTIN, Texas – Craig Marshall delivers personal narratives with an artist's eye (“As Far As I Can Tell”) and an alchemist's precision (“Hard Days”). Evidence: Turnaround. The flawless new collection spotlights the veteran singer-songwriter offering vivid vignettes with unmatched clarity (“The Only Thing I Have To Do,” “Feels Like Home”). Elegantly framed slices of workaday life map the landscape (“Last in Line”). “There are heartbreak and country songs, but also songs like 'Last in Line,' which is about making stuff happen in the moment,” Marshall says. “I return to themes like living life and getting things done while there's still time. I try to put a positive spin on the way time can take its toll.”
