Performance reviews:

I was amazed and uplifted by the spiritual depth of your musical catalog. Joy, sadness, deep introspection, humor and hope; all conveyed perfectly through your inspired lyrics and musicianship. -Dave-

Every song delivers an experience that only comes through the intimacy, vulnerability and courage that Marshal has developed over all of these decades as he has been perfecting his craft. -George-

Delightful, thought provoking and inspiring to hear the different lyrics you have written over the years. -John-

Truly you are inspiring...the lyrics and melodies you have written honestly generate a real enjoyment. -Marcia-

Marshal's music is intimate and honest and reflects a lifetime of personal examination. Marshal's songwriting reveals a keen eye for social commentary and a fierce desire to speak his truth. The result is tender, witty and passionate and absolutely delightful. -Rob-

I'll admit I Google-search folks who email me from time to time, and I'm glad I did, as your music came up. You've got a great voice, Marshal; warm and rich! And fantastic songwriting, as well. I hope the Muse of Music continues to inspire you, as well. A creative life is its own reward. -John Claude Bemis (Author of The Prince Who Fell from the Sky) -

Marshal's Music Bio: Marshal McKitrick is Meadowlark Tunes. His Spirit name is Meadowlark, as music is his passion. He grew up in the midwest in a musical family, singing in church choirs and playing on the family piano. He’s been playing guitar for almost 50 years while writing his own material. He has inspired and amused folks with a wealth of songs, ranging from ballad to social broadside. His musical style is nourished by roots that run deep in folk, rock, pop, blues, country, jazz, world music, and children’s music. His ability to connect the song with the occasion in a variety of different venues creates a singular wedding ceremony, an intimate house party, or an eclectic spiritual celebration.

Marshal has performed solo in a variety of venues, as well as with various other musicians. He has also co-led Community Kiirtans with his wife, Dena, and the Souls Journey music collective. In the fall of 2011, Marshal and Dena created a change up with the community kiirtan collective and started the band known as Souls Journey. The band has performed in the Sacramento, CA area.

He loves to sing lead and back-up vocals, play rhythm and finger-picking style guitar, enjoys playing keyboard and whistling. His current passion is improving his skill as a lead player on both the electric and acoustic guitars. Marshal is an expressive poet and songwriter.

I have been a writer and an aspiring wordsmith ever since I was a kid in grade school. I would write in a journal, here and there. I also wrote short stories about animals. I began writing poetry and songs somewhere in my twenties, after I learned how to play guitar at 16 years old.

I used to amuse myself in grade school by reading word origins in the dictionary and following the bread crumb trail. I’ve always had a love of language and words; what does a word mean, where did it come from, anonyms and synonyms, etc.

Words and music are very close together for me. I hear melodies in word phrases. I even hear poem or song titles in things other folks say. That sure comes in handy for songwriting. Of course, it can also get in the way of hearing what else others might want to convey to me via their own language.
