Canadian West Coast country rocker, Marshall Potts has unveiled his new single, “The Storm”.
A rural songwriting superstar living on a 160-acre oasis in his native BC, Potts treads the line on folk, country, and rousing rock and roll on an album drenched with his powerhouse vocals. Delivering on his commitment to convey the universal messages of positivity and optimism, Potts creates music he calls “moving beyond your past, taking back your power, embracing the moment and living in the here and now.”
True to form, his crossover track “The Storm” is as buoyant as a thunder rolling cascade of heavy guitar, and raining melody.
“This is a song of understanding, realization, and action,” Potts says, adding, “We realize what’s important to us when we have massive change, and like a storm, it will pass but it’s what we learned about ourselves that makes us better human beings as a result.”
In addition to gearing up for the song’s titular album and its upcoming release, Potts has celebrated two previous album drops, international airplay and touring, plus movie soundtrack credits.
Of the new album, Potts says: “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. The hero story we are all meant to walk and the gratitude that leads our lives as a result.”
“When the wind comes it brings change,” Potts muses on the lyrics of “The Storm”, “and only truth alone remains. ‘Cause it reveals your pain, that’s why the Storm came.” His anthemic challenge on the record implores for self-reflection. “We get the chance to redefine what’s most important to us and where we need to refocus our intentions.”
