Marshall Charloff – Unperfect

Singer, songwriter, Marshall Charloff, has been creating music since an early age.  Currently, Marshall fronts the incredible Purple xPeRIeNCE – the greatest tribute to Prince in the world. Not only does he style the magic of Prince’s talent in an uncannily, unmatched fashion with his appearance, vocal imitation, and multi-instrumental capacity on guitar and piano, but Marshall also performs nationwide fronting world-class symphonies in most major cities in the US and Canada. Recently, Marshall Charloff teamed up with the famous jazzman Marcus Anderson (New Power Generation, 3rd Eye Girl sax player) in Raleigh, NC to perform with the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra.  Marshall recorded with Prince on the album 94 East, (where Marshall plays both, keyboards and bass guitar and Prince is on lead vocals).  Pepe Willie, who discovered Marshall, was also responsible for getting Prince’s career up and running. 

In 2009, Marshall teamed up with Doctor Fink from Prince and the Revolution and Pepe Willie from the band 94 East to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame benefit concert (On the same bill were Cheap Trick, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and the Georgia Satellites). In 2019,  the Atlanta Rhythm Section brought Marshall in to play keys. Marshall Charloff is a celebrated producer and recording artist.  He produced, wrote and recorded for the Multi-Platinum and Grammy award winning Commodores.  He produced, wrote, and recorded for Hall of Fame Inductee Little Anthony (Little Anthony and the Imperials).  His skills paved the way for Marshmallow Fields: a 1990s production team consisting of Marshall, Grammy winner John Fields (The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, and Switchfoot), and Steven “Funkytown” Greenberg, and their single charted on the Billboard Top 100 dance charts and is still in rotation amongst DJs around the country.  Marshall is also an inductee in the Mid America Music Hall of Fame as a member of the band Westside.

With all this collaborative experience, connections, exposure and talent, Marshall is now branching out with his solo career.  2020 will see Marshall release all new original music (including his song “ColOURS”, co-written by Prince’s sister Sharon Nelson), opening shows as a solo performer for his Purple xPeRIeNCE shows, and playing solo dates with his full band. Marshall’s second album Unperfect is available on all streaming platforms since January 29, 2021. A physical CD is available here.
