Marshall Potts (Canada)
That's How it Starts Album heralds a new beginning for Marshall Potts. And his music. — it's about life's ups and downs, and learning to find something positive in the negative so you can keep going forward. Basically, the message is: Heal yourself, heal the world. Save yourself, save the world. But you have to come first." It's a lesson Potts learned first-hand. After decades of giving and people-pleasing precipitated major health and life crises that left him spent, the humble artist re-evaluated and upended his existence, setting off on a 'trip inside' — a spiritual journey of healing that has moved him from darkness into the light. You can hear his personal and artistic transformation in That's How it Starts. Inspiring lyrics while rocking out like a supergroup featuring U2, Bryan Adams and Lindsey Buckingham. The culmination of his yearlong pursuit of happiness, That's How it Starts was the last song the prolific lifelong musician penned for his upcoming album. Arriving late this summer, it's a musical story that focuses on moving beyond your past, taking back your power, embracing the moment and living in the here and now. That's where Potts is coming from and that is where he is headed. The journey starts here. 

Recently Marshall Potts was on the Official Showcase in Cannes, France at MIDEM 2019, and is now heading to Live at Heart Sweden as part of the Cashbox Caravan Show at Scandanavia’s largest music festival in
Örebro, Sweden with more global dates to follow. Because “That’s How It Starts”!
