Marshall Veroni is a contemporary folk singer-songwriter from Ontario with a sound that rings with a raw honesty about the human condition. From a young age Veroni had a passion for word craft which is evident in his ability to speak to an audience, and share his emotion with them. With a studio album under his belt he is now focused on writing his follow-up LP, teased by the release of his single ‘Everybody Doesn’t Know’ in July of 2021. Stepping back into the Canadian touring scene, Veroni began working with a new band in 2022 bringing an undeniable energy to his live performances. The Marshall and the band have upcoming show dates throughout 2022/2023 as well as a new single, a music video, and the beginnings of a new album on the way.
Marshall Veroni is an independent songwriter, performer and touring musician from Owen Sound, Ontario who works collaboratively with musicians around southern Ontario.
At 17 years old, after discovering his love of creative writing, Marshall founded the group Mack n’ the Boys, a garage blues trio who shared stages with the likes of Canadian folk legend Laura Smith and singer-songwriter powerhouse Irish Mythen. They released their debut album Here to Stay in 2013. The exploratory nature of performing and recording at such a young age helped to define his aspirations as an artist, drawing inspiration from working Canadian musicians.
In the years that followed, Marshall began writing and performing solo, leading him to find his own unique blend of vulnerable, acoustic folk songs that speak to the human condition and pull on the heartstrings of listeners. In 2016/2017, the live session of his song Falling Out took him to the third round of the CBC Searchlight competition and won him an opening slot for the Summertime Blues music festival, where he spent two days warming the stage for Blue Rodeo, April Wine, Joel Plaskett and George Thorogood.
Gaining comfort in his own skin, Marshall released his first solo album In fields in 2018. The album received glowing reviews from local music reviewers such as Canadian Beats, and his song We Met gained a placement in the 2020 Netflix drama series Spinning Out. The album has over 80,000 streams globally and has awarded him a loyal following throughout Canada and a growing fanbase around the world.
Since the release of his 2018 album, Marshall has toured to festival stages, intimate venues, private events and house concerts, sharing his songs and performances with audiences across Canada.
In July 2021, Marshall released his single Everybody Doesn’t Know, a song representative of his growth and experience as an artist, that features multi-instrumentalist and composer Abby Gundersen, of Seattle, WA and was recorded at MKONDO studio in Kitchener, alongside producer and recording engineer Brandon Fehderau. Fehderau has become Marshall’s musical confidant and together the pair continue to accelerate the evolution of his music.
At the end of 2021, Marshall started working with music management and promotional group Good Company Productions to create a new live performance and recording project with a talented group of Canadian musicians. Currently the group are recording, performing and rehearsing regularly in preparation for the 2023 touring season.
Presently, Marshall is preparing for his fall tour, an acoustic duo tour with guitarist Nic Nolet of Montreal, QC. The two will embark on a run of shows this October from Owen Sound, ON to Halifax, NS. The tour includes a couple full band performances such as a stop in London, ON for an official showcase presentation at Folk Music Ontario’s 2022 conference.
