Running Stop Signs
In 2009 Marshall kicked the door open when he won Country 95.3 FMs Big Break competition and blew audiences away with his infectious live show opening up for Emerson Drive. Two exceptional things for an unsigned artist happened next. First, Marshall was immediately signed by Nick Meinema of the Agency Group. Second, requests started pouring in for the winning demo 'This Rain', leading Country 95.3 PD Derm Carnduff to put the song into regular rotation. Marshall took his country soul mixed with rock'n'roll vibe down to Tennessee and began writing songs with Nashville hit makers Kris Bergsnes (Tim McGraw, Emerson Drive, Diamond Rio) and Dan Murph (Randy Travis, Sammy Kershaw) as well as Canadian superstar Paul Brandt. As he prepares for an upcoming Canadian tour, Marshall Dane is looking forward to continuing the journey from the city streets that welcomed him in their clubs to the big stage opening for Alan Jackson this July 2010.
