Marshall Artz

Dynamic Acoustic Americana

Marshall Artz is a guitar duo performing a distinctive original blend of Americana, Indie Folk and Blues forged together with in a powerful acoustic style. Their performances blend two guitars into a rhythmic and melodic mix that suggests a full band rather than just two guitars.

It is clear to see and hear why this dynamic duo is a driving force in the modern world of acoustic music.” - Len Jaffe
