Marshall Lawrence


Special guest Canadian Indie Artists Marshall Lawrence a.k.a “Doctor of the Blues”. Genre’ and styling has been described as Delta-style Blues & Roots with a Raw Edge and an Acid Twist. Marshall has been compared to Robert Johnson, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Son House, and some of his influences are Tommy Johnson, Muddy Waters, Taj Mahal, Johnny Winter.

Not many blues artists can call themselves “the Doctor of the Blues” without a whole stretcher-full of the idiom’s winking big talk. But Marshall Lawrence can, and with only the slightest bit of irony. The award-nominated Canadian bluesman actually holds a doctorate in psychology, and he knows how to use it—just as he knows how to use his slashing guitar, stinging, lightning-fast slide, and pleading, mournful moan: Marshall’s prescription for a maximum blues remedy.

Marshall’s newest release, Blues Intervention, is another stunning all-acoustic offering, following his 2008 Roots Music Report chart-topping The Morning After. A deep, soul-baring set of his self-described “acid blues”—a reference to the music’s alchemical mix of blues and Marshall’s background of playing everything from rock to soul, funk, bluegrass, and even punk.

Marchall’s style a Bluez sound with an edge, the soul of it draws you in for more. Telling a story, sharing a moment, the feelings, and emotions of that moment in time. Assists you in dealing with it, letting it go & be free with it and sometimes just move forward from it with lessons learned along the way.
