The Marshall Pass

The Marshall Pass is Duncan Arsenault and Craig Rawding. It began as a project of Duncan’s in the Winter of 2012. The songs that would become Abilene and Stranded In Perdition were written for Pistol Whipped. That April, the singer and guitarist of Pistol Whipped, Scott Ricciuti, died in a tragic car accident. Scott’s death would forever change the lives of his family and friends and created a musical void that cannot be filled.

Not long after Scott’s death, Duncan played these songs for Craig and the two commiserated over the loss of their friend and musical partner. Taking the songs home with him, Craig called later to say that he had written lyrics and melodies for them. The following weekend, at Duncan’s house, the vocals were recorded. In the months that followed, the two continued to collaborate in the same way: Duncan writing instrumental songs that Craig would listen to and write lyrics and melodies for.

Phantom Train is the beginning of this collaboration.
