Marshall Potts’ latest single is an ‘arena roots’ song if ever there was one
Brandy Records/MC1 Nashville recording artist Marshall Potts is busting open barriers with his new arena-worthy roots rock single, “Free and Easy.”
The title track from the Canadian artist’s third and forthcoming album, Free and Easy — set to land summer 2021 via Sony/Orchard — “Free and Easy” is the latest powerful example of Marshall’s mission to deliver a universal message of positivity and optimism through music.
While the song’s title may evoke a laid-back aural expectation, “Free and Easy” is a stadium-sized anthem, showcasing Marshall’s soaring, full throttle voice that could easily rival any top rock idol’s.
If you need to know how I’m feeling
Let’s share a bottle and some of your time
Cause I need to feel free and easy
Before I’m gonna let you in my mind
From this opening invitation to the sky punching chorus and rollicking outro, “Free and Easy” showcases Marshall’s journey of self discovery and personal evolution in a big, bold way. It’s an attention holding, larger-than-life declaration much like the towering billboard that recently introduced Marshall to Music City.
Self reflection and personal growth are central themes throughout the British Columbia-based singer-songwriter’s upcoming record.
“The album collectively tells the story of my own spiritual journey and inner awakening,” Marshall explained. “Free and Easy invites the listener to join me on this journey.”
“Free and Easy” sets the stage for his entire new album. It “foreshadows the positive outcome we can all expect when we take the time to learn about ourselves, seek our own truths, heal our old scars and reemerge standing our ground in our own power,” Marshall added.
Marshall already has much to be grateful for. He calls 160 idyllic acres home at a place near what many, including the Dalai Lama, call the centre of the universe, Kamloops, B.C. His music has taken him far afield to showcase and festival appearances in France and Sweden, as well as on home soil at Indie Week in Toronto — where he and his four-piece, Marshall Potts Band, were nominated for Best Emerging Artist – National in 2019.
