Zach Kleisinger invokes artists like Tom Waits, Kris Kristofferson, even hints of The Boss, in an utterly contemporary, yet timeless offering
Marsalis originally started in 2014.
Being a newer group doesnt mean they are strangers to the music scene. Lead singer, Dennis Zender, is most known for helping establish Seattle band Truce, a group that Adam Bishop eventually joined. Together they have extensive experience writing, recording, booking, managing, etc.
Other music projects lead Adam to meet Theresa Cadondon. Their friendship and music partnership opened up more creative possibilities which led to writing different styles and playing with various artists in the Seattle area. Through multiple projects, Theresa and Adam consistently chose to play with their drummer of choice, Phil Gardner (Incura, The Turn & Ugly Men), who later on came to join Marsalis and make the band whole.
Good energy came when the four started playing together. Marsalis started to sound like a mix somewhere between colorful pop rock with some brooding soul.
