Live contemporary jazz from award-winning guitarist Matt Marshak. Marshak’s sound is heartfelt, his guitar playing is hand-crafted, and he’s well on his way to becoming a new, original guitar voice as he continues to push the limits of jazz and groove music.

As an independent contemporary jazz artist on the recording and touring scene, Marshak has built a sound based on inspiration, improvisation and spontaneity. His live shows feature a simple quartet that allows him to show off the talents of his bandmates. The warm and inviting presentation lets his audience really feel the essence of this unique guitar player, one who often transcends any specific genre.

Matt Marshak performs at the NYC Autumn Wine Festival.

Two Sessions: 3-6pm & 8-11pm

Contemporary jazz guitarist Matt Marshak, a native of Long Island, New York, grew up on rock ‘n’ roll music in a home full of musicians. Passing guitarists inspired his playing, and in high school his teacher turned him on to the contemporary jazz and blues guitar sounds of Larry Carlton, George Benson and Robben Ford. Once out of college, Marshak performed a variety of musical styles with New York’s top original bands and artists. In 2001, Marshak released his debut CD “Preservation” and began to get more notice in New York. Later he opened for the popular “Guitars & Saxes” tour. In 2008 his album “On the Rocks” earned praise from JazzTimes magazine as “one of the best smooth jazz CDs of the year, for sure.”

In his release “Colors of Me” (2012), Matt Marshak taps into the wonderful diversity of music, shading his classic and fluid style with jazz, blues, rock, pop and even down-home boogie. This release follows 2011’s highly received “Urban Folktales”, which captured a sophisticated late-night vibe and boasted a #1 song on the 2011 indie jazz chart, “Silent Knowing.” Marshak’s latest album “Lifestyle” is going to be released in 2014. It’s a busy time for Marshak, who is popular on the tour circuit and finding new audiences with his new, fresh music. Keeping his music evolving in new directions is important to the guitarist.
