Lay your head down Gabby. Lay my head down too
I think you always had me. I think I never had you.

Baby, we don't have to spend a dime.
Maybe if we take a day, maybe if we waste our time,
we can go another way.

On my lonely shoulder. In a pensive room.
Feeling ourselves over isn't much to do.

Baby, we don't have to spend a dime.
Maybe if we take a day, maybe if we waste our time,
we can go another way.

Your shadow urges me on in moonlit tangled sheets.
Lying up till dawn sighing in the breeze.

Baby, we don't have to spend a dime.
Maybe if we take a day, maybe if we waste our time,
we can go another way.

Lay your head down Gabby. Lay my head down too
I think you'll always have me. I think I'll never have
you

Eddy Marshall - Gabby (Interview)

Interview

The first fantastic interview of the year. We are talking to the super talented Eddy Marshall. An inspiring song for that year 2021.

Tell us about yourself.

Hello, I’m a guitarist/singer/songwriter based in Manhattan. My music is created in moments of solitude and reflection on rainy evenings after finishing a cozy and warm meal. I have a penchant for life’s little details: the crack in a coffee mug, a broken umbrella outside of a cafe, and the way my dog yawns in the morning.

We would like to know your history as an artist.

I grew up playing saxophone and guitar in school. In my dad’s blue jeep we were always listening to The Four Tops and Ray Charles. I didn’t really get into songwriting until I started studying education at University of Vermont. From there I transferred to Berklee and eventually moved to New York. As a younger songwriter in the city I leaned towards folk music a lot. I was constantly listening to Simon and Garfunkel and Bob Dylan, but these days I pretty much only listen to pop music and jazz.

Tell us the story of this song.

I woke up one morning with the first lyric stuck in my head so I grabbed my guitar and sat in bed working out the first verse. Once I got it down I just sat there singing it for hours. The rest of it took some doing, but I finished it just in time for my gig that evening so I finally got out of bed after sitting there all day to finish it up and play it over and over again.

Tell us a funny story from your career.

One time I booked my band for a show in Kentucky on March 31st, then was offered a show in Burlington Vermont on April 1st. I took that gig without realizing that those days are back to back so my bassist and I had to drive through the night listening to J-pop at full volume. We arrived and played the show to nobody because we advertised it at 9:00 accidentally when it actually was at 8. This is the point where we decided saying yes to every single gig wasn’t always the best practice.

Also tell a story of overcoming.

When I came out of school I was pretty burned out with music and everything really. I powered through a nine semester program in 6 because I had this weird fixation with the concept of graduating "on time." I had set myself up for a career in music and I couldn’t even bear to listen to music when I was driving a car. In time, hanging out with people who loved music and lived for it helped start seeing it as a magical part of humanity again. I still have trouble sometimes listening to music for pleasure, but I find myself enjoying it more and more these days.

Leave a message for your fans.

Thanks for sticking with me folks and listening to my new and old stuff! I can’t wait to bring you all brownies and cookies once music venues open up again and we can play music and be merry together.

Eddy Marshall thanks for being here. We wish you much success in your career.

And see you in the next interview. Bye!
