Biography

Marshall Chapman was born and raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina. To date she has released twelve critically acclaimed albums, and her songs have been recorded by Emmylou Harris, John Hiatt, Wynonna, Joe Cocker, Irma Thomas, Jimmy Buffett and Jessi Colter, just to name a few. She has toured extensively on her own and opened shows for everybody from John Prine and Jimmy Buffett to Jerry Lee Lewis and The Ramones.

Of her three rockin’ albums for Epic, the Al Kooper-produced Jaded Virgin was voted Record of the Year (1978) by Stereo Review. Following 1982’s Take It On Home (Rounder), Marshall released two albums on her own Tall Girl label: 1987’s Dirty Linen (A- in Christgau Consumer Guide, released in Europe on Line Records) and 1991’s Inside Job (voted Album of the Month in April 1992 Stereo Review).

It’s About Time … recorded live at the Tennessee State Prison for Women (Margaritaville/Island, 1995) drew rave reviews from Time, USA Today and the Village Voice. After its release, Marshall and her band (The Love Slaves) toured with Jimmy Buffett, playing for over a million people. The following year, they went in the studio and recorded Love Slave. According to Marshall, being a love slave is a way of life. “We’re all slaves to something,” she says, “… might as well be love!”

    She's been a favorite of mine for years. I saw her on a raw spring day outside at one of the local colleges 1977 or so. She was ROCKIN' out for about an hour and then the sun came out and it got warm. Marshall took off her coat and a guy sitting close to me said "Holy shit, it's a chick!!"

    She's one of the greatest singer-songwriters in country music history. I don't know how she never made it as a superstar.
