Midge and his full band will showcase tracks from the new album as well as a second set of well known favourites covering his well - documented music career spanning four decades in New Zealand, Australia, The United Kingdom and America.

An early career change and passion for rhythm and blues and roots music led a sixteen-year-old Midge to join the 1960’s band ‘Bari and the Breakaways’. At the end the 60’s Midge joined the NZBC working in radio, however music performance pulled him in again with the Wellington cult band ‘The Country Flyers’; followed by several years in Australia with ‘The Phil Manning Band’. On return to New Zealand in the mid 80’s he began a solo career forming ‘The Midge Marsden Connection’ and then ‘The Midge Marsden Band’. This resulted in several albums and a loyal fan base and following. Midge’s career highlight was the platinum selling album ‘Burning Rain’ in 1990.

The intervening years have been a combination of teaching music, performance, song writing and touring. Based on the very successful ‘Travel n' Time’(2008) album , Midge started work (in 2012) on the concept album ‘Back to the Well’. In collaboration with songwriters Neil Hannan, Arthur Baysting, and Alex Deane, Midge drew from life experiences growing up in Taranaki, performing and touring in America, his early music life in Wellington. Also included on the new album are cover versions of some much-loved songs that ‘fit the concept’ of the record including a track by the late Mark Sandman of Morphine, Presbyterian reggae from Jimmy Cliff, gospel on 'I'll Drown in My Own Tears' and a treatment of an early Rolling Stones hit 'Time is On My Side' which takes it back to its soul roots.

'Back To The Well' was released via SDL Music / Rhythmethod in May 2014 and is currently sitting at #8 on the IMNZ Charts.
