Midge Marsden has enjoyed a well-documented music career spanning four decades in New Zealand, Australia, The UK 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. A career highlight was the platinum selling album ‘Burning Rain’ in 1990. The intervening years have been a combination of teaching music, performance, songwriting and touring.

Based on the very successful album: ‘Travel n Time’ (2008) Midge’s new album ‘Back to the Well’ has also enjoyed steady sales. Midge drew from life experiences growing up in Taranaki, performing and touring in America and his early music life in Wellington. Also included are cover versions of some much-loved songs that ‘fit the concept’ of the record.

The outcome is a very different and personal themed album. In his own words, Midge says "this is a project unlike anything I have done before and I hope that people enjoy the end result."
