Marshall Rhodes could be the classic new American "roots" band, with foundations in Bluegrass, Country, Jazz, Blues, Rock and even Acappella. Glenn Burke and Michael Lehman spent the last four years refining their songs with the Bay Area band, Borderline. They have emerged with a sound and vibe that is rooted in acoustic music yet rocks with deep pocket rhythms and soars with Lehman''s guitar work. With veterans, Adam "Bagel" Berkowitz on drums and Michael Godwin on bass they have a solid rhythm section to launch their songs from.
Their songs are about life, from simple emotions, to the conflicts of torn relationships, coming of age, even war and forgiveness... but mostly about love both won and lost. Burkes'' "This Perfect World" appeared in the soundtrack of the Warner Brothers movie, The Postman. More recently they recorded the soundtrack for an award winning animated short of the children''s book, "Stanley Goes for a Drive", by world renowned Illustrator, Craig Frazier.

After nearly two years of work, they have a new CD. With appearances from Bay Area musicians including, Austin Delone (Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Fabulous Thunderbirds), Jim Rothermal (Van Morrison, Jesse Colin Young, Dr. John) , Barry Sless (Kingfish, David Nelson Band, The Flying Other Brothers) , Jonathan Korty (Vinyl), Cole Tate (CTB, Lonely Hearts Band) and David Phillips (Charlie Hunter Trio, Jack West & Curvature). "But at the core of it all, is the songwriting," says producer Adam Berkowitz.
The "good-time" feeling Marshall Rhodes band will leave you smiling. It''s been called Alt Country, Roots Rock or Americana, but they like to think of it as a reflection of their Bay Area home. A sound called, Gold Country.
