Marshall's music experience began at age 6 doing solo flute performances for school classes. By age 14, he had picked up drums and guitar, and by age 17 was playing professionally on drums and bass in the Portland, Oregon area. Music styles he performed included rock, jazz, blues, country, and theater orchestras to name a few. Marshall started writing and recording original music in the late 70's and early 80's in Portland. Then after taking about a 10 year break from music and moving to Minnesota, Marshall took up keyboards in the 90's and started a new direction in composing electronic music, and began performing on keyboards in a rock band plus bass in a folk/blues music duo. In addition, he moved away from drums and focused more on hand percussion. He performed on a number of CD projects by other music artists and started creating his own original work. Some of these original compositions have been used for commercial purposes such as in film and trade shows. Marshall started Davis Sound, a recording studio primarily focusing on voice recording. Projects include audiobook recording and production, commercial voice-over, corporate voice work, podcast recording, and music vocals. Marshall still will dabble in music and composition when there is time.
