Been in hell and back,
Made it here and gonna make it there,
Fierce state of mind,
Fear is a taste he cannot remind
Forgotten feeling replaced by a burning will to go forth and beyond,
No matter the dark nor the unknown:
“No Retreat” is the new motto for Joe Marson.
This November 11th, he’s just released his single, a track burning with Blues and Rock.
The Blues spirit is in the lyrics, words of determination, dedication, and perseverance,
And in Joe Marson’s voice, you can hear the man’s got Soul.
You may be riding the highway to hell, as suggests the tumultuous riffs of the guitar and the rocking and booming drums,
But deep in yourself, you have faith you’ll be safe,
Or at least that there’ll be a way to get back on your feet, and start over.
National touring artist, multi-talented musician,
Joe Marson been playing hip hop in Oregon, jazz in Boston, folk songs in Arizona, and blues-rock in Austin, Texas
And you can feel a whole lot of life experience in his track No Retreat.
The hard and heavy chorus, contrasting with the soft and soulful verses, ending with a frenetic conclusion describes a roller coaster of emotions and expressions in one single song, quite intense, indeed.
The song features Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, St. Vincent) on drums and Rob Calder (Passenger) on bass.
Marson learned how to play slide guitar specifically for this song, which was originally written for a movie that never got made.
Joe Marson fuses perfectly Soul & Rock.
Making it to the Top 5 out of 14,000 submissions, he won over $10,000 in gear from Guitar Center 4.
Plus he’s placed some of his songs in major films like Marvel’s Deadpool as well as popular television series like FX’s Justified and Netflix’s Bloodline.
