Marshall Shares New Album Track + Video “Shadows”
February 15, 2019 BY Nettwerk
Marshall is one of the principal singers and songwriters in the Juno-award winning group, Walk Off The Earth, whose videos have amassed over 400 million views on YouTube. Today, he shares a second track, “Shadows,” from his upcoming solo debut, Layers (Nettwerk), proving that this album is next-level output from an artist without boundaries.
The introspective, glitched-out modern pop song “Shadows” presents yet another side to Marshall, who says of the track, “It isn’t so much a story. It’s really more of a thought or even a frustration… it’s the inability of the mind not being able to communicate what it truly wants to say.”
For the song’s music video, Marshall teamed up once again with Chris Stacey (Director/DP) and Brian Trieb (Executive Producer), whom he worked with on the “I Could Be the One” video last fall. Marshall says, “I love the line in ‘Shadows’ that says ‘Leave it all in the time that we stole’. It kind of puts everything into perspective with regards to getting older and how we live our lives.” As for Marshall’s accelerated on-screen aging process, he comments, “Hannah Reed [make-up artist] and her team blew this away for me. Literally watching my face become my father and then my grandfather was surreal.”
Marshall first introduced his solo work with “I Could Be the One,” which blends his pop sensibilities with touches of R&B, hip-hop and indie rock. He has co-penned songs for everyone from from mega-producer/DJ Tiësto and Grammy nominated producer Ill Factor to Finnish noise-makers Rasmus.

Marshall and Walk Off the Earth are playing at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto tonight, and their 2019 World Tour will include stops at such notable venues as Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, CO, and the Wembley Arena in London, UK.
