Adam Marsland


Adam Marsland is an American independent singer/songwriter, most known as the former lead vocalist and primary songwriter of Cockeyed Ghost, a 1990s California power-pop trio whose sound was equally indebted to the abrasiveness of Husker Du and the songcraft of Elton John. Several years after the dissolution of Cockeyed Ghost's record label, Big Deal, the band--which had increasingly become a vehicle for Marsland's very personal songwriting--disolved after one more self-released album.

Adam Marsland is an American independent singer/songwriter, most known as the former lead vocalist and primary songwriter of Cockeyed Ghost, a 1990s California power-pop trio whose sound was equally indebted to the abrasiveness of Husker Du and the songcraft of Elton John. Several years after the dissolution of Cockeyed Ghost's record label, Big Deal, the band--which had increasingly become a vehicle for Marsland's very personal songwriting--disolved after one more self-released album. Marsland launched his solo career with a series of extensive, cross-country tours playing small clubs, and the release of a live album, 232 Days on the Road. In 2004, Marsland joined with singer/songwriter Evie Sands, who became a driving force in The "Adam Marsland Chaos Band," his new touring band and the band used on his first solo studio album, 2004's You Don't Know Me.

Two years later, the band began playing a string of concerts that paid tribute to the songs of Dennis and Carl Wilson, and this materialized in a live album released under the full band moniker. In 2008, Marsland re-recorded several old Cockeyed Ghost and solo songs for a best-of compilation spanning his entire career. In 2009, Marsland returned with his second solo full-length, Go West, a stylistically-varied double album. The nearly 5-year recording of Go West was mentally, emotionally, and financially exhausting for Marsland (he faced a significant degree of personal tragedy during its recording, including the suicide of his brother, the murder of a sister-in-law, and a robbery at his home). Shortly after its release, Marsland embarked on a national tour and played to mostly small audiences, and despite initial success the album failed to sell.

Marsland's exhaustion fueled him to write and record Hello Cleveland in a single day on the tour. Bitter and hastily cast off--the opposite of the meticulously crafted "Go West," the audience-shedding album was released in January 2010 and Marsland has indicated it is likely to be his last.
