Marshall Dane

For five years in a row, Marshall has been nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the CMAO Awards, alongside artists who have major label backing and riding recent hit singles. Why? Sheer fan power. It is Marshall’s fans who have consistently voted him into the top level. The fans don’t need a chart number to influence their loyalty – he’s a star to them, and that’s the real end game. They hear it. They feel it.
