Adam Marsland - Daylight Kissing Night - Adam Marsland's Greatest Hits 2008 (Karma Frog Records) mp3@320

Growing up in California, Adam Marsland shared studio space with three other musicians in the early '90s. In February 1994, after various bands broke up or were unsuccessful, the musicians at the studio decided to join forces. The result was Cockeyed Ghost, a pop/rock band that released four studio albums as well as a rarities compilation dating from 1996 to 2001. The group shared the stage with Redd Kross, Fastball, and Third Eye Blind, among others. By the release of Ludlow 6:18, however, Marsland opted to temporarily break away from the band and pursue a solo career.

Clocking in close to 200 shows from Los Angeles to New York and back, Marsland released his debut solo album, 232 Days on the Road, on Karma Frog. Taped on the final night of his 8000 Consecutive Days on the Road Tour, the album was widely praised for mixing new songs with staples from his former band's discography. He has also worked with the Negro Problem as well as opened for Glenn Tilbrook(

This is a very good album of a gifted songwriter in my opinion. There are a lot of Power pop acts out there with more studio trickery for impressive sounds and for every song an other producer and all those things but Marsland had a very fine songwriting. Great guy.
