Singer/Songwriter Marshall Potts began writing songs at age 12 after an early heartbreak. At 18 he began his musical journey when he formed a band with high school friends called the Cause. Early performances under this name followed a re-branding of the band name to Saints and Poets. Regular performances and tour dates followed to support the band’s first CD release. Early success was achieved with 2 songs from the CD placed on a movie soundtrack, radio play, CFOX seeds CD, the Best of BC CD placement and many live performances.
Marshall took a break from the road to focus on his family in early 2000 but continued to write and record songs. Health issues postponed a solo album release after donating his left Kidney in 2006. A spiritual journey following a long recovery due to complications after the donation led to the release of his first solo album called Long Goodbyes. Long Goodbyes album was released the first day of Spring 2017. This release has a collection of 12 alternative rock songs. A solid singer songwriter effort from this artist has depth and catchy melodies with passionate honest vocals.Ready to go back on the road, Marshall is currently promoting Long Goodbyes to radio and playing select shows while arranging a tour to promote the release. Always the songwriter, he is working on his follow up album. A glimpse of what’s to come from this artist is available online with all major distributors called 1111-Hold On.
Marshall currently lives just outside of Kamloops, writing and recording in a picturesque remote valley near what many, including the Dali Lama, consider the center of the universe.
