Chris Marsol, a San Francisco-based alt/rock/soul artist, is proud to announce the release of his new album, Butterflies, Lipstick, And Hand Grenades. The album, Marsol’s sophomore effort, will be available October 20 via Clear Label Records.
With comparisons ranging from Lenny Kravitz, Res, Prince, Pete Yorn, and Ben Harper, it’s readily apparent that Chris Marsol’s music genuinely mixes and matches styles. As a proponent of blending and bending genres and bowling down musical stereotypes, the talent is something that comes natural for Chris, and that talent is on full display in the manner in which Marsol crafted his latest release. Chris says, “Honestly I wrote over 200 songs without ever planning an ‘album release’,” he says, “I would dream some of these songs and wake up in the middle of the night, grab my guitar or piano and start writing. After about 200 songs I had to record them, not to make an album but to get them out of my head so I would not go insane… literally.”
