Who I Am (Biography)


Michael "Michael Stefan" Marshall represents a new generation of music makers who artistically push boundaries while challenging society’s status quo of what constitutes normal. Born in Suffolk, Virginia in October of 1995 Michael grew up in a rural setting eventually growing bored at an early age enough to ask what is life? Who am I? Why is life the way it is? Who are we as a culture? Why? The essence of Michael’s being is the making of innovative music today. “Music is my therapy. I need it. Anyone whose seen death close along with drug abuse to those you love without understanding will force you to grow”. The message in Marshall’s unique approach to music shows anyone listening to just be themselves no matter what obstacle. Before being offered multiple major recording deals headed into the Pandemic of 2020 Marshall released 2 independent mix-tapes along with a few music videos.

“In the midst of your darkness become your own light.”

The same commonalities that Marshall Expresses through his music connects him with the misfits, middle class, & people of the world. Being raised by a minister of music from childhood musically telling stories came naturally to Michael. With the sensational ability to profess introspective truths discovered through going through pressure, his studies of self, & the world Michael found music & became it.

“I am music from the eyes of the observer.”

Michael Stefan is currently preparing a multitude of new music which will be released via his new major label distributed partnership with Black Ink Management & Music Group/Bungalo Records/Universal Music Group. From near death experiences, growing up in a single mother house-hold, having a family of his own, dodging court/drugs/ and the streets early on, among many countless life lessons Michael has reality through art to share.

Cheers.
