Max Marshall’s Interview with CBC’s Bob Steele: Should Musicians Get Paid?


Max Marshall, a singer-songwriter and well-known guitarist sideman from Windsor-Essex County, was interviewed recently by Bob Steele on his CBC program “Afternoon Drive.” Marshall’s hometown of Essex Ontario is planning a series of free summer concerts, but Marshall is having nothing to do with it. Marshall sums up, “We as teachers, mentors, and players, have to instill in the younger generation that your musical performance is worth financial compensation. As artists we have to be generous, but our municipalities have to help us out.”

About Max Marshall:


“Max Marshall’s long standing tenure as the bassist with Kenneth MacLeod & The Windsor Salt Band, as well as others, are highlight nights of musical mirth, music and mayhem. After a Windsor-Essex sabbatical and soul journey that lead him across the country, Marshall’s returned to our fair county with a barrel full of songs and a new found voice that not only emphasizes the talent he previously showed with other ensembles, but highlights a talent for storytelling that only proper travel and inward reflection can unveil. Back Through the Meadows, his recent five-song EP, captures this newfound confidence with great endeavour. Combining the most honest moments of songwriters like Cat Stevens and Harry Nilsson with the delicate delivery of Jack Johnson or Ray Lamontagne, Marshall captures a perfect little Muskoka road trip in this short appetizer of songs and stories.”
