Jeffery Marshall


Jeffery has been a staple of the L.A. music scene for more than 20 years!  Jeffery left his humble upbringings in Northern Michigan to attend Hollywood's own Musicians Institute in 1989.  Upon graduating he quickly immersed himself in the local LA scene playing in a variety of local bands.  One of which included Tod Howarth of Frehley's Comet, Ted Nugent, and Cheap Trick fame.  In 1994 Jeff relocated to Dallas, Texas where he teamed up with local Alt Rockers The Judas Engine and recorded guitars on their self titled debut Rainmaker Records release.  In the late 90's Jeffery relocated to Southern Ohio playing in various local acts where he furthered honed his craft as a reputable Blues/Rock guitarist.  In the early 2000's Jeffery relocated back to the Los Angeles area and toured with a variety of national acts, which include Lisa Hayes and the Violets, and Pop/Country artist Ashley Jay.  About this time is when he met Paul Vallis the leader and founder of Bleeding Harp.  Jeffery co-authored and produced Bleeding Harp's debut CD "Gotta Have" released in 2004.  Bleeding Harp quickly became a staple of the L.A. Blues scene regularly playing venues such as Harvelle's, The Blue Cafe, The Coach House and the Catalina Island Blues Festival.    In and about 2004 is when Jeffery met Country artist Rick Monroe.  The two quickly hit it off as writing partners and Rick Monroe's "Against the Grain" is a result of this pairing.  Jeffery toured with Rick for a number of years both in the US and abroad!  Rick's video of the Allman's remake "Midnight Rider" which featured Jeffery on guitar and background vocals was featured on country music's CMT.  The group opened for a number of well established acts including Dwight Yokum, Montgomery Gentry, and Kenny Wayne Shephard to name a few.    In 2006 Jeffery returned to L.A. and began teaching at the world renowned Musicians Institute, Guitar Institute of Technology where he currently resides as a full time instructor.  Jeffery teaches a variety of core classes including Single String Improv, Rhythm Guitar, Guitar Studio Skills, Rhythm Section Workshop, and Private Lessons.  He has also written articles for as well as youtube videos for Guitar World Magazine. Jeff can also been seen playing with guitar phenom Jeff Kollman in his solo group The Jeff Kollman Band and also season 4 of "The Voice" contestant Michael Austin in Michael Austin and the Law which regularly perform at the world famous Gilley's Saloon in Las Vegas.  In 2007 Jeffery released his debut instrumental CD "Eucalyptus".  This recording contains songs, which highlight Jeffery's rock roots, and has met with much success.  His cover of Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein" is a favorite of both musicians and fans!   In more recent years Jeffery has been working more on the production side of things.  He currently writes and produces music for Studio 51 and Xray Dog, music libraries offering music to TV and film.  His abilities to not only write, but produce, mix, and master, have made him a very sought after musician.  He also works with a variety of local artists writing and producing tracks, including Award Winning artist Debbie Hennessey, Country up-and-comer Doni Flanigan, and Country/Pop artist Autumn Lee.   In the past few years Jeffery has also reformed Bleeding Harp with leader and founder Paul Vallis. With a new all-star lineup, the group is currently working on a new CD.  They can be seen playing the local Los Angeles music scene and on the Blues Festival circuit this summer.  Comprised of some of L.A.'s finest players who happen to all be close friends, Bleeding Harp is quickly reclaiming their status as a premier Blues/Rock act in the SoCal area.  A must see! -
