Review – Marshall Veroni

Album: In Fields
Release Date: October 25, 2018
Genre: Folk

After six years of writing, Marshall Veroni has released his debut EP In Fields. The Ontario native’s previously solely acoustic work transitioned into a full band sound for the release. What follows is an eight-track collection of Veroni’sstories, his life experiences. To promote the album, the budding singer-songwriter took his songs on the road with a handful of Ontario dates, with plans to tour the entire country in the spring to winter of 2019.

Accompanied by a full band, In Fields is Veroni at his very best; an open diary to anyone who wants to listen. Rooted in honest storytelling and no-frills melodies he hits home on everything from love on the lovely “Falls”, to bitter breakups on “Watercolours”, to the naivety of growing up on “YoungUgly Angry”. Realization manifests in “Long Time Coming” and “Living Situation” while “We Met” and “I Used to Walk” feel like looking back into our pasts.“Family” hits the hardest and is Veroni at his boldest and most vulnerable.

His songwriting instantly evokes emotion as he weaves through each song with ease – channeling key writing and performing qualities from writing greats like Canada’s own City & Colour, or music veteran Ron Pope. What Veroni is capable of doing is combining clever wordplay into easily digestible mini-stories set to slow burning guitar strums, swelling violins and delicate piano touches. 

InFields is a short but sweet collection of honest and relatable songs that will warm your soul.
