BIO

COUNTRY MUSIC ARTIST AND SINGER-SONGWRITER BEN MARSHAL WAS BORN IN BAKERSFIELD, CA, AND RAISED IN SOUTH EAST OKLAHOMA. AT THE AGE OF 10, MARSHAL STARTED SINGING AND PLAYING MUSIC IN HIS HOMETOWN CHURCH AND SCHOOL BANDS. AFTER HIGH SCHOOL HE TOOK HIS GUITAR ON THE ROAD WORKING ON DRILLING RIGS THROUGHOUT TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, MISSISSIPPI, NORTH DAKOTA AND MONTANA. DURING HIS DOWNTIME, HE FOUND LOCAL BARS TO PLAY LIVE AND STARTED WRITING SONGS INSPIRED BY HIS UPBRINGING AND TRAVELS. 

LIVING AND BASED IN THE HOUSTON TX AREA IN HIS EARLY 20’S, BEN PLAYED MONTHLY SHOWS AROUND SOUTH TEXAS. THIS BUILT A DEVOTED FAN BASE AND DEVELOPING HIS STYLE & CRAFT. WITH A JOB TRANSFER TO OKLAHOMA, HE ONCE AGAIN FOUND CLUBS AND LOCAL SHOWS TO ENTERTAIN. AFTER A FEW MORE YEARS IN THE OIL & GAS INDUSTRY, HIS FIRST ALBUM WAS RECORDED AT LEON RUSSELL’S FORMER STUDIO IN TULSA, OK. THIS SOLIDIFIED A DECISION TO LEAVE THE DRILLING INDUSTRY AND PURSUE A LIFE IN MUSIC. 

IN 2013, HE FORMED HIS BAND AND WENT ON THE ROAD FULL-TIME TO PROMOTE HIS EP, PLAYING OVER 300 SHOWS IN ONLY A COUPLE OF YEARS, TOURING TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, COLORADO, NEBRASKA, WYOMING, TENNESSEE, LOUISIANA, NEW MEXICO, SOUTH DAKOTA, AND KANSAS. 

INTERESTED IN THE BUSINESS OF  SONGWRITING, MARSHAL DECIDED TO MAKE A MOVE TO NASHVILLE. WHILE STILL TOURING OUTSIDE OF TENNESSEE, HE FOCUSED ON CO-WRITING, PRODUCING, SESSION PLAYING, AND PERFORMING WHILE OFF THE ROAD. 

AFTER THREE YEARS OF TRAVELING  FROM TEXAS TO TENNESSEE FOR WORK, BEN REALIZED THE NEED TO GROW AND BUILD HIS FAN BASE IN TEXAS WAS THE LONG-TERM GOAL. ALTHOUGH HE STILL MANAGES HIS STUDIO IN NASHVILLE, WHERE HE ALSO RECORDS AND PRODUCES, BEN HAS FOUND HIS WAY BACK TO TEXAS, NOW LIVING IN THE DALLAS AREA. 

WITH HIS 4TH ALBUM ABOUT TO DROP AND A SINGLE ON TEXAS REGIONAL RADIO, BEN IS HAPPY TO BE BACK W ITH SOME OLD FRIENDS AND FANS, PLAYING THE MUSIC HE LOVES TO WRITE AND PERFORM.
