Not only is Marshall Charloff a singer and songwriter, he is a celebrated producer and recording artist. Having worked with and recorded for acts such as Little Anthony (Little Anthony and the Imperials) and multi-platinum-selling-grammy- award-winning band, The Commodores, Marshall’s writing and producing skills paved the way for the creation of Marshmallow Fields: a 1990s production team consisting of Marshall working with Steven “Funkytown” Greenberg (musician/record producer/production/owner of October Records) and John Fields (musician/record producer/production/The Jonas Brothers/Miley Cyrus/Switchfoot/Goo Goo Dolls/Pink/Backstreet Boys/etc.). Marshall has also been inducted in to the “Mid America Music Hall Of Fame” as a member of the Minneapolis band, Westside.
Over the course of time, Marshall has teamed up with the famous jazz man Marcus Anderson (New Power Generation/3rd Eye) to perform with the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra and he has recorded with Prince on the album “94 East”. Marshall has even teamed up with “Doctor Fink” from “Prince and the Revolution”, along with Pepe Willie from the band 94 East, to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame events. Currently, Marshall fronts The Purple Xperience, a band cited as one of the greatest tribute bands to Prince and performs to a dedicated audience backed by world-class symphonies in most major cities worldwide.
“What if” we told you that in the middle of this crazy schedule that he has also put out his own music?

Marshall even discusses his take on where the music industry is today and shares some of his own original tracks, including a previously unreleased collaboration with one of Prince’s family members.
