Watch & Listen
Born in 1953 in Detroit, Michigan, Marshall Crenshaw learned to tune a guitar correctly at age ten and has been trying ever since. His first big break came in 1978 playing John Lennon in "Beatlemania", first as an understudy in New York, then in the West Coast company followed by a national touring company. Removing himself from that situation in Feb. 1980, Marshall settled in New York City. After crossing paths with the great and legendary Alan Betrock, Marshall recorded his debut single "Something's Gonna Happen" (for Betrock's Shake Records label), which led to a deal with Warner Bros. His debut album, Marshall Crenshaw, was acclaimed as a masterpiece upon its release in 1982 and established him as a singular songwriter, record maker, and guitarist. The album spawned the hit single "Someday, Someway," and other classics such as "(You're My) Favorite Waste of Time", "Whenever You're On My Mind" and"Cynical Girl."
Over the course of a career that's spanned three decades, 13 albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, film and TV 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.
Brian Henneman released a solo single called Indianapolis in 1992. When that single garnered a record deal, Brian formed the Bottle Rockets together with Tom Parr, Tom Ray & Mark Ortmann.
The 3rd album "24 Hours A Day was released under the label Atlantic Records.
Tom Ray left the band in 1997.
On the album Brand New Year the new member Robert Kearns plays the bass guitar.
In 2001 the band signed a record deal with Bloodshot Records.
The first release under Bloodshot Records was Songs Of Sahm. It was a tribute to Doug Sahm (Sir Douglas Quintet).
John Horton replaced Tom Parr in 2003
Robert Kearns left the band in March 2005 and was replaced by Keith Voegele.
JamBase calls ‘70s-influenced jam-rocker Debra Devi “a supersonic fret-burner with a deep feel for the blues who writes hauntingly memorable songs.” Metal Hammer says “Her compelling voice reminds us of PJ Harvey and Sheryl Crow, while her guitar playing brings to mind the incomparable Jimi Hendrix.”
Live, Devi leads “a ferocious guitar-driven band equally adept at sprawling psychedelic jams and terse, soulful rockers,” says New York Music Daily. Grab a free download of her debut album, Get Free, at www.noisetrade.com/debradevi/get-free
Devi is also the author of the award-winning blues glossary The Language of the Blues: From Alcorub to Zuzu (foreword by Dr. John).
