Work hard, never give up and claim the beauty that life has to offer. These worthy themes are threaded through all Craig Marsden’s 1970s recordings. His songs are forged from his inspiring life of love and loss as he journeyed from small town Michigan to Hollywood. Craig’s virtuosic guitar work, soaring vocals and mesmerizing melodies penetrate and transcend time delivering the true nostalgia of the Classic Rock era. Marsden’s career is full of impressive credits opening for the likes of Bob Seger, Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, and Edward Bear. He also performed with a diverse roster of artists including Mark Farner (Grand Funk), Chick Corea, Maureen McGovern and Freddy Cannon. Fervor Records is thrilled to bring you Craig Marsden, Brand New Start, coming end of October 2013!

Tonight’s episode “One More Weekend With You” will feature a song from the Fervor Vintage catalog tonight. The track “Workin’ Overtime” by 1970′s vocal powerhouse and guitarist extraordinaire Craig Marsden is reminiscent of the progressive rock band Yes, and lyrically couldn’t be more appropriate.
