Morrissey & Marshall – We Rise (cd)
A couple of years ago, Darren Morrissey and Greg Marshall arrived in London from Dublin with two acoustic guitars and a headful of shared dreams. They set about hauling themselves up the hard way from the rough and tumble of street corner busking and open-mic nights to playing at some of the best venues and recording studios in the city. Now it’s all about to kick off with the release of their second album, We Rise, a hard-hitting, high-kicking, rock & roll band production that reflects this period of profound personal and musical growth.
With its epic production and seamless combination of vocal, instrumental and songwriting prowess, We Rise echoes a tradition of mainstream excellence stretching from Oasis all the way back to the Beatles, no less.
Musically, We Rise is a big step up to the top table of pop. And with international release and touring deals in place across Europe and as far afield as Japan and Australia, the words and sounds of Morrissey & Marshall are spreading rapidly.
