Anyone who's ever had the privilege of meeting Jeffrey Marshall would say that he is probably one of the most unique people you will ever meet. He has already lived a lifetime and his souls purpose is to share that with people from all walks of life. To tell you a little bit about this unique individual, we must start from the beginning.
Jeffrey was born in La Plata Maryland on the 5th of December 1972. When he was born, he was three months premature and born with a severe disability. He was born without arms and very small legs and given a very low chance of survival. The doctor’s prognosis was that he would undoubtedly not live past three months. Jeffrey was given up for adoption and six weeks later was introduced to the Marshall family. His new family showered him with love and affection as if he was their own and Jeffrey was destined to live. Three months went and passed and to everyone’s surprise, he had developed the independence and strength to do whatever he put his mind to. As he grew up, he lived with his mother, father and three sisters in the Washington, DC area until the age of 13 before moving to Florida. Two years after moving to Florida, the family packed up and moved to Nashville, Tennessee. While attending high school, Jeffrey started his love affair with music.
Jeffrey always wanted to play music and began practicing bass guitar with his high school buddies after school. Since he was used to using his feet like hands, he started to play like anyone else who inspired for greatness. From the moment he touched the instrument, he knew that it would be something that he would do for the rest of his life. After high school Jeffrey went to Middle Tennessee State University where he majored in music, acting, and film. Through a series of strange and unique occurrences, his second live performance was in front of 20,000 people were he shared the stage with Widespread Panic, Blues Traveler's, and the Dave Matthews band. That day alone changed Jeffrey's life forever. He was no longer considered to be simply that guy called Jeffrey Marshall. But from that day alone, he was considered to be Jeffrey Marshall, "the guy that plays the bass guitar with his feet."
In 1996 Jeffrey moved from Tennessee and came to Denver, Colorado where he still continued to pursue his music career playing and recording with local and regional bands in the area. Jeffrey began seriously writing songs, singing, and also playing harmonica all at the same time. After six years of traveling between Denver and Los Angeles, he decided it was time for another life adventure. So Jeffrey ordered a passport, bought a plane ticket, and within two months was in Prague, Czech Republic (he didn't know anything about the place or any anyone). In January of 2002 Jeffrey formed "Supercool" with another American who he met in Prague by the name of Daniel Levanti. They began performing and recording music while also appearing in several documentaries about Jeffrey and the band throughout the Czech Republic France, and Italy. In 2005, after a European tour and successful EP, Supercool went to Nashville and recorded “Greatest Hits Volume 1" signed under Earwave Records.
In 2007, after a sabbatical in Jamaica, Jeffrey decided to return to America. Now, living back in the states, Jeffrey was once again reinventing himself as a musician and a filmmaker. In 2009 he worked at the world famous Venice Beach just outside of Los Angeles as a solo artist while landing small acting roles on the side. This inspired Jeffrey to return to film school to revive his lifelong passion of becoming an accomplished filmmaker. By the summer of 2010, and with three short films already under his belt, Jeffrey traveled to Thailand to begin work on his first full length documentary about a Buddhist monk who converted a rural monastery into a clinic for disadvantaged people suffering from the HIV and AIDS epidemic. Currently Jeffrey is working on film and music projects as well as doing public speaking engagements throughout America, Europe, and Asia. With all the things that Jeffrey Marshall has accomplished in his life, if you ask him if he plans to slow down in the future, he simply replies, "I've only just begun!"!
