“Marshall Poole is not a person but a band of four different individuals: Rider, Mike, Seth and Mel. These four, who’ve grown up together as people and musicians, collaborate to create a musical experience that is both nostalgic and innovative from combining psychedelic rock to southern vibes; straight-up pop songs to instrumentals; heavy guitars to intricate keyboards; noisy bass to polyrhythmic drums.
For fans of: My Morning Jacket, The Allman Brothers Band, Russian Circles and Frank Zappa… meet Marshall Poole.
“Marshall Poole isn’t a person; it’s a four-piece rock ’n’ roll outfit that originated out of the Boise suburbs at a New Year’s party in 2011. While the band is most certainly from Idaho, much of the music of their late-2015 release Totems is full of grizzly psychedelic Southern rock licks. It’s music that speaks to your soul while also slapping you in the face.”

The members of Marshall Poole have been playing their quirky and contemplative rock n’ roll since their first show on New Year’s Eve, 2011. The three original members (Rider, Michael and Melanie) grew up together and began practicing inside a pool house in small-town Caldwell, ID. After graduating high school and moving to Boise, they began to develop their core roots in heavy rock n’ roll, finally finding their love of weaving multiple genres together when they added their newest member, Seth Graham. Since the release of their first full-length album ‘Totems’ (Defendu Records), Marshall Poole have been critically acclaimed for their high energy and heavy content.
There upcoming album Pasadena is set to release mid-late 2018. One thing that the members of Marshall Poole want their fans to expect is that each album will be something different. Pasadena will definitely be a an eye opener for those fans who haven’t seen them at a show for a while. Testing the new sounds in their hometown of Boise, ID the dancing continues at the family events while at the venues fans are chanting “encore”.
“When all modern music seems to be lackluster and Mumfording, this record is a massive right hook poised to knock them square on their ass. With just days left in the year, almost as if on purpose, Totems parks squarely on my top ten and I don’t doubt it will yours as well.”
