The Tin Man’s heart is not only worn on his sleeve, but also strapped to his back telling emotional stories through a hollow-bodied guitar. Paired with a seasoned voice unashamed of its raw vulnerability, you quickly find your own heart beating in sync with these anthemic songs. It’s the sound of relationships past and inner struggles present, balanced with the hope of a brighter future. It’s a southern sound bread out of a youthful love for The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, and Tom Petty.

Despite all the heart Marshall has always put into music, the first two chapters of his career were lead by his brain. After college he earned a law degree from the prestigious University of Michigan and proceeded to practice corporate, intellectual property law for seven years. Then upon leaving the law, he founded Mowgli, an entertainment technology company focused on gamifying the creation of music. Four years and four million investment dollars into the fast-paced technology start-up world, Marshall realized he’d done it again. He had let his brain take the reigns over his heart. He took a step back, 417,462 steps to be exact, and hiked the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain. It was his yellow brick road, which lead him to the heart of his music.
