New Zealand Musician review of Over There:

By Ricardo Kerr

‘Over There’ is the latest in his growing catalogue of albums exploring the acoustic end of the

country and blues spectrum, evoking the vast lush landscapes of Aotearoa, with just a hint of Americana.

It is country music of sorts, but a sort born out of life experience, not misguided fads and popularity.

Marshall has a sincere, weathered voice somewhere between Nick Cave and Bruce Springsteen. Speaking

from experience it demands your attention at every turn. A mournful harmonica opens the doors for

some lush guitar chords to breaks through on opener Know About You. Throughout the album are touches

that stick in your memory after it has played; the gentle waltz of This World, the layered guitar

tones on Iron Years, and the title track’s threadbare blues, a la Seasick Steve. A charming journey,

nothing but pleasant from start to finish, a safe bet for anybody who craves a little more

heartfelt and earnest than the typical Kiwi music fare.
