Biography

Western Canadian Roots

“Imagine John Denver with an electric guitar” – Peter Pirquet, Full Moon Folk Club, Edmonton.

Marv Machura, described by Penguin Eggs Magazine as a "winning singer and talented guitar player," is one of Alberta's favorite singer-songwriters.

As a singer, performer, and guitar player, Machura’s original blend of folk, blues, rock, and country-based roots-music with his band, The Marv Machura Band, has a reputation for high-energy, guitar-driven live performances.

Following the musical tradition of contemporary folk-roots artists like Fred Eaglesmith, Steve Earle, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, and John Denver, Machura's music and live act have a wide demographic appeal. Audiences are draw to Machura’s unassuming manner and charm and won over by his clear, expressive vocals and dynamic guitar playing on a range of original and cover tunes.

His three critically acclaimed discs (2003, 2004, 2009) have been supported by radio stations across Alberta and have landed significant air and internet radio play in Europe and the USA. Although he has published over 20 songs in Nashville, Machura is primarily known as narrative singer-songwriter and guitar-player whose music continues to define the Western Canadian experience.

A veteran of the roots music scene, Machura has been performing for over thirty years; with the release of his latest disc, he shows no sign of slowing down!

The new CD Warm Summer Night is sure to please old and new fans of this Western Canadian singer-songwriter and continue pushing his career onward and upward!

Note: Machura is pronounced Ma-chúra, as in “mature-a.”

Various comments about Diamond For Fields of Clover
Marv Machura…is a winning singer and a talented guitar player. - Penguin Eggs, Canada’s Folk, Roots, and World Music Magazine. ... ...from all the singers I've heard you are all wonderful to say the least... - Sue Schroeder, Alberta Country Showcase. ... Hi Marv, Richard here from fatboyz and I wanted to e-mail you to tell you how much I am enjoying your cd. I really can appreciate the effort and expense you put into making it. I would like to purchase a couple more copies from you for Christmas presents; would that be possible? Also I would like to book yourself into fatboyz ASAP. Could you please e-mail me your open dates between now and the end of the year. Once again I can't tell you how flattered I was that you thought of Kate when you dropped off a copy of your disc. A big thank-you. - Richard Croft. The reason why I'm dropping you a line is to tell you that I absolutely loved your CD. I had my girlfriend over and I played Nora Jones and then yours and she loved both and said they were both of the same caliber. Not bad from someone who's never been to Saskatchewan! You are truly a great storyteller. I hope to see you marketed well. You deserve fame and fortune. Well done! -Daisy. .... Keep listening I will be playing more from the album...I'll try and work more music in over the next few weeks. -Tom Coxworth CKUA Radio Folk-Routes Program Host. Hi Marv, Got your disc, Very cool. I need to know how available you to play live. Thanks. Sincerely, Kyle MacGuire Nuance Entertainment: Western Canadian Tour Office. ... Congratulations on your new CD! What a great sound! I really enjoyed your songs - especially Grain Train and the Canadian Whiskey song, as well as your more contemplative ones like Kursk and Manitou Stone. -Orest Soltykevyich CSJR Radio. Thanks for sending you CD. I enjoyed listening and wish you all the best with it. -Holger Petersen Stony Plain Records. ... Hi Marv. Just listening to your CD. "Hockey Town" in particular is a truly great song, sentimental, heartfelt and with a great, real feel to it. "The Manitou Stone" - very cool as well... and "David's Song" again has that great sentimental, real feel, homespun. That's it for now as a review. I'll get back to you once I'm able to truly sit and commune with the CD more deeply. Great production values. I can see "Hockey Town" as a video, by the way.”

- Mark Kozub, The Alberta Beatnik
