DECONSTRUCTED VOLUME ONE by Chris Marshall presents....

The concept of this First-In-A-Series of albums involves paring back the arrangements and productions of (for the first one) well known songs, and having 20 different debutants and established artistes choose what to sing in a fresh new way. Angie Brown sings Stevie Wonder's Heaven Help Us All, Wain Kara Douglas  sings Sondheim's Being Alive while La Voix sings Joni Mitchell's Both Sides, Now. Opening with Aaron Alexander singing Queen's Save Me with piano alone, the whole project is a most different and hopefully rewarding experience.

BRAVE by the LONDON GAY BIG BAND and FRIENDS

This album by the amazing London Gay Big Band was produced by myself at Abbey Road Studio 2, with some singers and overdubs being completed at rpl studios, London. After being semi-finalists in Britain's Got Talent, the band have sold out their tours around the world, and this album features 13 of Europe's Greatest Jazz and Stage singers, such as Ian Shaw, Clare Teal, Claire Martin, Ria Jones, and Olivier winner Sharon D. Clarke. Along with an EP "Red Hot" & an Xmas Single too, their studio recordings have great reviews, as does the Band Live.

LOVE IS/ANSWER YOUR HEART by DREAM ON DREAM

Jeff Mason and I (Chris Marshall) met in 1979 in London, wrote and played in bands together ever since. Toured Spain and made a few singles (one was called Strangeways, and is still available on 7" vinyl I think) and an as yet Unreleased album.

This Limited edition CD single was a minor hit and is available again.
