How do you start a journey to an unseen but magical desired location? You take a leap of faith, because “that’s how it starts”.

Canadian singer/songwriter Marshall Potts has a new fresh version of “That’s How It Starts” and it’s a hit. The song offers an intimate invitation into the heart and soul of the man.

In Marshall Potts’ case the journey is as interesting and inspirational as the destination. The last year has seen Marshall reap the rewards of faith, determination, tenacity and hard work. Realizing this is a marathon not a sprint, he mapped out a plan and strategy that would see him dipping his toes into the ocean of festivals and reaching out to global audiences.

With two successful appearances in Europe, the next step on the path was the one that led him to Indie Week in Toronto, Canada, this time bringing the whole band to perform. The Marshall Potts Band rocked the house at every venue and gained more respect and admiration from an already growing fan base. The shows were tight, flowing, energetic and showcased Marshall’s talent perfectly. The band was so well received that they received a nomination for Best Emerging Artist – National Indie Week 2020, no small accomplishment in what was a truly competitive market.Marshall Potts made a last minute decision to attend and perform at an official showcase as a solo performer and part of the Cashbox Caravan in Cannes, France at MIDEM 2019 . This would be leap for Marshall but one he conquered admirably. The Caravan then moved to Live At Heart in Orebro, Sweden where Marshall played three solid shows that garnered new international fans and caught the attention of Peter Åstedt of MusicHelp/Discover Sensation who runs stages and festivals around the world, including Live at Heart Sweden. Astedt has taken a liking to Potts and is now supportive of getting him out there on a global level.

The leap of faith at attending three major festivals put Marshall Potts in the position that now has him returning in September to Live at Heart Sweden 2020 with the full band, heading straight to Toronto, Canada to perform at Canadian Music Week at yet another major showcase then off to an emerging artist showcase spot at Summerfest, North America’s largest music festival.

With the release of the new single and video “That’s How it Starts” this is yet just another giant step in the progression of Marshall Potts’ musical and life journey. “I’m really proud of the new single, “That’s How It Starts.” It really is a lesson in life as told by the lyrics. With John Webster at the helm as producer, I really feel he captured the true essence of who I am as an artist.”

Indie Week 2019 Award Nominees Announced
CashboxCanadaCover

British Columbia singer/songwriter Marshall Potts has a new album, That How It Starts, and it’s a winner. The ten-track offering is an intimate invitation into the heart and soul of the man.

We got to spend some time with Marshall is Cannes, France and saw his showcase at the festival and had some insightful one on one chats. The first thing you notice about Marshall Potts is that when he’s talking to you he looks you in the eye and you know you have his full attention. He does that same thing from the stage, the audience is his only focus, that and the message is conveying through his songs.

That’s How it Starts is another giant step in the progression of Marshall Potts musical and life journey. “The title track, That’s How It Starts is really a lesson in life as told by the lyrics ” That’s how it starts / You come, you go, you run / You face your fears and embrace your tears’. It’s When you talk to Marshall you realize the depth of the lyrics as they relate to his own life and experiences. After years of giving and people-pleasing, precipitated major health and life’s curves, the sometimes painfully honest artist regrouped and started reinventing his life. This resulted in a work in progress but the healing journey from the darkness to the light that has seen a metamorphosis into a confident, laser-focused man on a mission. With the love of his life, Jo-anne, or as he calls her Joey, by his side, he is virtually unstoppable.

Marshall Potts heads for the Spanish coast in the video for his latest single Hearts in the Sky — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.

To illustrate this tender, fingerpicked folk-pop ballad from Potts’ brand-new album That’s How it Starts, the camera follows the Kamloops singer-songwriter and his lady love as they stroll the streets of a Catalonia town, eventually meeting on the beach and walking off together into the sunset — a perfect visual metaphor for his Lindsey Buckingham-style track about intertwined souls.

Canadian country-rock artist Marshall Potts has released a new single called “Hearts in the Sky” off his sophomore album titled That’s How it Starts. This is an acoustic song that is filled with emotion and depth.

Through both the guitar, and the lyrics, it’s abundantly clear that “Hearts in the Sky” is a deeply personal song for Marshall. It’s a song that’s really easy to get lost in – even his voice has the allure of a dream as it comes through the speakers. Many of the songs off his album are more upbeat and have a country-rock vibe to them. It’s nice to hear a softer side that showcases Marshall as a Canadian singer-songwriter.
