Long Island native guitarist Matt Marshak has an incredibly likable charisma. Is that enough to succeed? Certainly not. But with eight CDs on his shoulders he is constantly building on his awareness and reputation.

Matt Marshak – Lifestyle

LifestyleMatt Marshak brings his strongest and most honest release to date. Lifestyle is inspired by the Golden Era of contemporary jazz and R&B (late 1970’s-80s), and artists such as George Benson, Larry Carlton, James Brown, David Sanborn, Prince, BB King to name a few. Organic production, absolutely no drum machines or drum loops, spontaneity, improvisation, and a human element all give the listener reassurance that this record is rooted in tradition of jazz and groove music.

Gerald Veasley on bass, Benjie Porecki on Keys, Carl Anderson on drums are the band on all the tracks. The whole album was recorded live at “Secret Sound” Studios in Baltimore Maryland and Nuance Studios in NY. Matt Marshak brings a unique guitar sound, 100% original material, and is putting forth music based on artistry, honesty, and expression.
