Raised primarily in the Pacific Northwest, Marvin moved around with his family spending his younger years in England. This explains why his musical influences run the gamut. Never staying squarely in one genre for too long he has remained an unreformed music obsessive since childhood. Comfortable in the music styling’s of rock, pop, blues and soul, he was influenced by artists of every style he could find. He plays multiple instruments and has performed in bands and as a solo artist since college. Marvin has a number for recording, engineering and producing credits to his resume and continues to evolve as writer and respected music industry consultant.
