Over the course of a career that’s spanned three decades, 13 albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, TV & film appearances (Buddy Holly in “La Bamba”) and thousands of performances, Marshall Crenshaw’s musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of artfulness, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base.
Along with touring around the country and the occasional recording project, Marshall currently hosts his own radio show, “The Bottomless Pit”, every Saturday at 10 PM on New York’s WFUV (http://www.wfuv.org/content/bottomless-pit). Other current projects include an in-progress documentary film about legendary record producer Tom Wilson. “This is a road that I never imagined taking before” says Crenshaw, “but it’s been amazing and is going great.”
Crenshaw got his early break, in the touring company of the Broadway musical of Beatlemania in 1978, as John Lennon. He began his recording career with the now legendary indie single “Something’s Gonna Happen.” In 1982 he released his self-titled album Marshall Crenshaw with Warner Brothers Records. His music has roots in classic soul music and a rockabilly style of Buddy Holly, to whom he was often compared in his early career, and whom he portrayed in the 1978 film La Bamba. His compositions have been covered by an array of performers, including Bette Midler, Robert Gordon, Ronnie Spector and Marti Jones. Crenshaw has written several music sound tracks, and was nominated for a Grammy and a Golden Globe award for writing the title track for the film comedy Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.
As an American musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist best known for hit songs such as “Someday, Someway”, a US Top 40 hit in 1982, “Cynical Girl,” and “Whenever You’re on My Mind.” He co-authored one of the biggest hits of the Gin Blossoms, “Til I Hear It From You.”
“There is a beauty in the simplicity of Crenshaw’s well-done songs. The lyrics are straight forward, forthright and always upbeat. “Someday, Someway” is an example of his infectious melody and chorus that gets stuck in your head long after the music stops, showing how Crenshaw can craft a simple song into a pop masterpiece.” … Classic Rock Review
