With roots firmly planted in the folk songwriter genre, New Jersey native Sean Marshall began performing songs in the bars of Riverdale, New York City. Here, he cemented his solo live set before moving on to join Lightning Jar, an award-winning folk trio who found their success in the local Asbury Park music scene.
In 2014, Marshall relocated inland to Columbus, OH to resume his solo songwriting efforts. His debut full-length effort, New, was well received, with critics calling it “warm and balanced,” “refreshing,” and When supported by his band, The Near Miss (Dakota McElley- bass; Nathan Columbo- pedal steel guitar; Brady Oxender- drums), Marshall’s songwriting gifts take his song to new sonic heights, exploring the world of country, folk, and good old rock-and-roll.
You can hear Sean Marshall & the Near Miss in the venues of central OH and beyond.
