“The Marwills – fresh, exciting, talented, exploding with energy and excitement – these guys were a highlight of the festival weekend!”
– Marianne Glover (Music Director, Tay Creek Folk Festival)
“…this is what real musicians should sound like.”
– Baxter Labatos (Sphere Music Blog)
Groovy bass and big drums anchor an explosive frontman and fiery guitars. The Marwills are a thick, juicy cut of Rock stuffed with the Blues and covered in Grade A Canadian dirt. They make music with serious guts and they sweat while they do it. Their sound conjures smoky blues bars, shady drinking establishments, and the golden age of rock and roll.
Although their debut album, “Marwill St.”, was released in 2012, most of the members have been playing together in some form or another for almost a decade. Starting out in small-town BC then playing in Alberta for a number of years, The Marwills continued east to the big smoke of Toronto, where they’ve established themselves as a rocking tour de force to be reckoned with.
The Marwills’ latest album, “Facts & Figures” (2014) is a raw rock album full of bluesy riffs, crunchy guitars, and lustful lyrics, rounded out along the edges with backing vocals, slide guitar, keys, sax, a female choir, fiddle, and acoustic guitar for a touch of mature nuance.
The Marwills have recently finished recording their 3rd full-length album, set to be released spring 2018
