Rhys Marsh

Rhys Marsh, based in Trondheim, Norway, is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist & producer. He’s a solo artist, leader of The Autumn Ghost, as well as a part of Kaukasus & Mandala.

— Solo — In the autumn of 2013, Marsh put out his first solo release — a five-song collection of covers, called ‘Suspended In A Weightless Wind’. Songs covered included Nick Drake’s ‘Things Behind The Sun’ & King Crimson’s ‘Moonchild’.

Marsh’s debut solo album, ‘Sentiment’, was released in November, 2014. It was written & recorded over a two-year period in Marsh’s own Autumnsongs Recording Studio. On the 1st of December, 2015, Marsh released his second solo album, ‘The Black Sun Shining’ — an album written & recorded in only seven days.

In early 2019, Marsh released the long-awaited follow-up album, ‘October After All’, on Karisma Records.


— Kaukasus — The spring of 2014 saw the release of the debut Kaukasus album, ‘I’. Kaukasus is a collaboration between Ketil Vestrum Einarsen, Rhys Marsh & Mattias Olsson. Written & recorded in two weeks, the album is an instinctive sum of its parts.


— Mandala — Marsh’s first band, formed in 1997. In 2014, after a seven-year break, Mandala got back together to record their debut album, ‘Midnight Twilight’.

The follow-up album, 'The Echoes Of Your Mind', will be released in November, 2020.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
