Ben Marshall’s earliest memories of music were dancing around the house and singing along to Elton John and Beatles records with his family when he was just a child. By age 11, he was drawn to the guitar and remembers bugging his parents to buy him one. After constant persistence, he received his first guitar at the early age of 13. While the neighborhood kids were out playing, he was up in his bedroom listening and trying to jam along with Jim Croce, Muddy Waters, Led Zeppelin, Boston, Eric Clapton and The Beach Boys records, to name a few. If you are looking to find music—new, local musicians with a passion for melody—give Ben Marshall Band a listen.
