CHRIS MARSHALL MUSIC & WORDS

This is rhythmshop. These are the pages of the Composer/Producer (not forgetting Blogonteur) Chris Marshall

Hello

I'm Chris Marshall and on these pages, you Dear Web Reader, will find information, music tracks and galleries, connected with my music production company RHYTHMSHOP,  what's been going on, and what's coming soon forthcoming events, releases and gigs with James “Biddie” Biddlecombe, on the NEWS page. Plus in a desperate attempt to amuse and entertain, my writing of a bloggage nature (travel madness, music & media, and world confusion all covered) is entitled "BETWIXT THE INTERIM" and is to be found HERE.

All that and a shop too! Enjoy and contact me with any ideas (apart from Shut Up).

These last three years have been rather busy for your Webmaster, so I'm here somewhere enjoying some sunshine...

Featured ARTISTES 2019:  
DAVID FERNANDEZ

I met Dave a while ago at Abbey Road Studios, and we got talking about future projects we both had in mind. I invited him to perform on the Deconstructed Volume One album, and he sang at its Live Launch in London too. Dave has had a couple of record deals for singles in the UK and Australia, and having toured and written over the last twenty years, there’s a great deal of material to record for a debut album. So, along with Abbey Road’s Giles Martin, and Paul Pritchard, who have also produced tracks, I have co-written and produced three songs which we are completing in Abbey Road in January 2019 for release in the Spring. Watch this space for details!


Young up-and-coming star from Madrid

Biao is the name of the artist I've completed an album with. He's a Counter Tenor, Pop Diva and hugely original singer/songwriter. We're doing videos for some of the tracks now, but the album's called HAMARTIA. Watch this space.


Live Performances

I’ve been performing live with James “Biddie” Biddlecombe in Cabaret shows in London.

After sell-out performances at London’s The Pheasantry for Pizza Express Jazz, and the Above the Arts Club, 2019 sees us perform at London’s Premier Cabaret venue Piccadilly’s Crazy Coqs on February 13th.


More stuff

There's a whole load of new material in three projects on the way in 2019. Sneaky peeks coming soon.

That's Finn.

He's still the one on the right as a puppy.

1st WORD OF THE YEAR 2019

"INDEED"

 For some reason, tv and radio journalists now feel the need to add the word “indeed” at the end of far too many sentences. On Sky News and BBC TV and Radio News, one literally can’t move without hearing “thank you very much indeed”.

Dictionary says: indeed /ɪnˈdiːd/ adverb used to emphasize a statement or response confirming something already suggested. "It was not expected to last long, and indeed it took less than three weeks"

synonyms:as expected, to be sure, in fact, in point of fact, as a matter of fact, in truth, truly, actually, really, in reality, as it happens/happened, certainly, surely, for sure, undeniably, veritably, nay, if truth be told, you could say…

Meanwhile, my buddy, lyricist and travel psychologist's dog, Finn is now over a year older, but still jolly cute, though lives in Yorkshire these days, and is just recovering well from a horrific accident..
