Tommy Marz Band debut new track, Rock and Roll Girl.

After playing for over a decade with his rock band GoToZero and headlining venues like, The Magic Bag and The Emerald Theatre, Tommy Marz recorded his first solo album a few years ago, and intended it to be a one time creative experience. Quite often, pop artists will have a desire to record a rock n’ roll album after years of recording pop records. But with Marz, it was the other way around. After years of writing, performing, and recording predominately rock music, Tommy decided to take a softer approach with his first solo album Rival.

Marz’s cover of George Michael’s “Faith” spawned a video that went on to gain nearly a hundred thousand views on YouTube and received placements on cable networks, such as NBC and MTV. Marz thought there was a market for that style of music, and decided to record a follow-up album: Play. Listen. Rewind. Repeat. The 2013 record contains the single, “A Kid In The 1980’s,” and placed at #17 in the SDC Radio Networks top songs of 2013.

Having a run of successful shows at The Royal Oak Music Theatre, The Blind Pig, and Rockin’ the Riverfront, Marz decided to take a break to concentrate on recording. Now, along with two members of GoToZero, Jason Tucker and Chris Alef, Marz is preparing new material, and this time, he’s going for the best of both worlds. In late 2014, Tommy Marz will release two new albums, one pop and one rock.

Together Marz, Tucker and Alef plan to play shows that will feature songs from each album in the months to come. The first single to be released is called “Rock and Roll Girl.” Marz has put it up for streaming on Soundcloud.
